General Details

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.

Extra product information

Installation: No set up required. Generates no noise or heat and uses no electricity, making it immune to power interruptions.

CFT: The Constant Force Technology automatically adjusts the mattress's network of interconnected air cylinders and elasticised reservoirs to the appropriate, therapeutic levels for each user, regardless of their weight or position on the surface. As the user moves from supine to side lying, the air moves around the elasticised reservoirs to provide greater immersion to increase surface area and distribute pressure without bottoming out.

Pressure Care: Geo-Matt design creates an anti-shearing surface. 800 individually responsive cells in head, torso and foot zones. Heel slope feature redistributes load to pressure tolerant lower legs and calves. The subtle taper reduces heel pressure while providing foot support.

Transfers: Multi-component perimeter minimises risks associated with edge of bed entrapment issues and provides a firmer edge to improve transfers.

Cover: Standard vapour barrier cover fabric has ultra-low moisture vapour transmission rate. Fluid proof urethane coated lead free polyester stretch fabric is easily cleaned, bacteriostatically treated, anti-fungal and anti-static.

Indications for use: For the prevention and treatment of pressure injury (low to medium risk). User should be able to reposition themselves or be regularly positioned by a caregiver.
