The Oska Fika Mattress is designed for users who may be at high risk, however, do not require air pressure relief. This mattress is suitable as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure damage, for up to and including Category 2.
A Superficial Pressure ulcer (Category 1-2) is intact skin with non-blanchable redness, usually over more boney prominences such as the hip, bottom, heels or elbows. A Category 1-2 may include damaged epidermis and or dermis, leading to bleeding and further injury. A Superficial wound can also be determined through other signs such as discolouration, oedema, warmer or cooler when compared to other areas.
Featuring the Oska LDHR, Low Density, High Resistance foam, the Fika Mattress provides exceptional comfort and will significantly improve sleep quality. Innovative and efficient processes have been used in the design and manufacture of this specialist foam, reducing the need for an air mattress.
Low Density Foam provides increased airflow, which creates better temperature control and cooler sleeping. This is vital in the prevention of pressure ulcers, as heat leads to increased risk of wounds. The low-density foam also allows for ease of movement, as the foam doesn’t react to the body temperature like a high-density foam does. This means it springs back better and allows for more movement with less constriction.
The Oska High resistance combination foam provides the user with better support, having improved response time. This is beneficial to allow for movement and assist with transfers getting on and off the bed.
