General Details

Extra product information

Air cells:
- The air in each cell will depend on the weight of the user. The users weight can be adjusted on the control panel from between 30kg - 180kg.
- The cells can be changed between dynamic and static mode on the control panel. Dynamic mode has an alternating cycle time of 10 minutes.

Transfers:
- It is recommended to have the mattress system at maximum weight setting during transfer to increase firmness for transfers.

Emergency CPR:
- In the case of emergency, pull hard to remove the mattress' CPR latch for emergency deflation and turn off the power unit by pressing the power/mute button on the control panel at the same time.

Cleaning:
- Regular cleaning can be performed at bedside with disinfectant and water followed by drying with a clean dry cloth. Use only mild detergents and water to clean the coverlet and mattress.

Caution: Pressure Cushions & Mattresses

• All pressure reduction products must be monitored to prevent 'bottoming out'. This occurs when the user's weight bears down so hard on the product material that it is flattened and the bony parts are pressed against the surface below the cushion or mattress. Where bottoming out occurs even with correct use (e.g. correct inflation levels), a different product may need to be considered.

• Sometimes, due to the user deteriorating, the product may become unsuitable. Continuous monitoring is necessary and alternative products may be recommended.

• There are many things to consider when selecting pressure care products including nutrition, skin moisture, level of mobility, age shear, friction, location of pressure ulcer (if present) and hygiene. Any comments regarding level of pressure care is a suggestion made by suppliers as a guide to assist with selection, and this may differ from brand to brand. When selecting pressure care products it is strongly advised that a comprehensive assessment is undertaken by a health professional to encourage correct product selection and monitoring of product effectiveness.
