Heel Relief Slope
The mattress is crafted with a decline at the foot end, this assists in the prevention of pressure ulcers in one of the most vulnerable areas on the body.
Fire Evacuation Base
In the event of a fire, use the mattress to help evacuate your patient with the unique and innovative evacuation straps. Carry handles are located on the outer side of the mattress to allow you to move your patient safely.
Designed to significantly reduce shear and friction which often leads to tissue damage. The base foam remains in position on the bed frame, whilst the top moves with the user.
The mattress covers technology can withstand aggressive cleaning regimes, exhibit anti-decubitus properties, give improved durability and improve patient comfort.
The CPR valve can be released when CPR is being performed. It quickly deflates the mattress giving a hard surface in order to carry out the procedure.
Regular sewn seams are ideal for bacteria to grow in because of all the holes. Welded seams are melted or welded together using high frequency vibrations meaning there are no holes or gaps for bacteria to get into. This helps reduce the spreading of infection.
