Our advanced P.R.O. Technology can provide solutions that allow your facility to achieve your clinical and risk management goals.


Introducing the P.R.O. Matt - state of the art pressure care from JOERNS UK, the manufacturer of the highly acclaimed Oxford range of lifters and slings. The P.R.O. Matt® Plus is a powered mattress replacement system featuring our Pressure Redistribution Optimization (P.R.O.) Technology. The mattress provides powered immersion or alternating pressure therapy, allowing facilities to use one mattress for both pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.


The unique P.R.O. Technology design requires no adjustments or manual inflation. The mattress features a sophisticated internal hosing and valve system that is invisible to the caregiver and patient, but enables the surface to automatically adjust to each patient's weight and body profile.


Benefits & Features:


1. The head zone is static and comprised of high density foam to optimally support the patient and provide comfort

2. 3. 4. The shoulder, torso, and foot zones are comprised of combination air/foam cells. Each zone automatically adjusts to each area of the patient’s body to provide optimal pressure redistribution

5. Viscoelastic foam topper provides maximum pressure redistribution, patient support, and increased comfort

6. Surrounding firm perimeter provides stability during patient care and contributes to patient safety by eliminating gaps between frames and siderails

7. Custom P.R.O. assembly requires no manual inflation and ensures that each zone remains optimally inflated when the patient is not on the mattress

8. Therapy cover is designed to enhance patient comfort and protect the patient’s skin:

  • Fluid proof and stain resistant
  • Treated with an antimicrobial to protect it from the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria
  • Low shear, low friction nylon cover is standard; stretch cover is optional
  • Treated with an antimicrobial to protect it from the growth of mould, mildew and bacteria

9. Non-skid, tear resistant bottom prevents mattress sliding on the deck to reduce the risk of falls



P.R.O. Technology Control Unit:


The P.R.O. Matt Plus has three modes of operation:


Autofirm Mode

Use Autofirm mode to quickly inflate all of the mattress cells to full inflation. This mode may be desirable to assist with patient transfers and other nursing procedures requiring a firm surface.


Therapy Mode

In this mode, the P.R.O. Matt Plus mattress provides powered immersion and flotation for excellent pressure redistribution.


Alternate Mode

In this mode, the P.R.O. Matt Plus converts to an alternating pressure redistribution system. Three alternating pressure cycle times of 5, 10, and 15 minutes provide customized therapy as needed.



More Features and Benefits


  • Four-zoned system (head, shoulder, torso and foot) inner air core automatically adjusts to each patient’s body profile and weight
  • P.R.O Technology valve maintains optimal air pressures in each therapy zone for superior pressure redistribution regardless of patient weight and profile
  • 1” viscoelastic topper enhances pressure redistribution and patient comfort
  • Optional raised perimeter available
  • Surrounding firm perimeter provides stability during patient care and contributes to patient safety by eliminating gaps between frames and siderails.
  • Therapy pad with these unique qualities:
  • Fluid proof and stain resistant
  • Low friction and low shear surface
  • Zippered construction


Control Unit


  • Three alternating pressure zones, including the delicate heel section for optimal pressure redistribution
  • Powered control settings for eight levels to maximize patient compliance and promote healing
  • Closed loop control system eliminates concerns of changes in mattress interface pressure due to
  • patient repositioning and ambient temperature changes


The P.R.O. Matt Plus, with its elegant design, simplifies care giving while delivering improved clinical outcomes in a cost effective platform. The reactive mattress also provides excellent pressure distribution, protecting sensitive tissues and improving comfort for an overall improved patient experience.
