Alternating Pressure Relief Mattress With Built-in Pump System
This alternating and continuous pressure mattress features automatic weight-sensing technology and a supportive foam insert that can be adjusted to suit the patient's individual needs. You will enjoy the innovative cord management system, where the pump and cords are inside the mattress and non-visible from the outside.
The Universal Therapy System Alternating Pressure Mattress can be set to alternating or continuous low pressure and is designed to reduce and relieve pressure ulcers. The pump that alters pressure is housed within the mattress itself, saving valuable floor space. Automatic weight-sensing technology will customize the alternating pressure sequence every ten minutes to the patient's weight distribution, ensuring optimal treatment. In-cell foam protects the patient during power outages, and the CPR quick-release system will deflate the entire mattress in twenty seconds for emergency procedures. A layer of comfort foam can be placed on top of the air cells to enhance patient comfort or beneath the air cells to optimize the benefits of alternating pressure. The nylon cover is water-resistant and vapor moisture permeable to protect the patient's skin, and features a polyurethane coating finish. Built-in hooks allow the mattress to be secured to a bed frame, while the integrated handles make it easy to transport. Cable sleeves help manage cords to prevent tripping hazards.
The Universal Therapy System Alternating Pressure Mattress is capable of both alternating pressure and continuous low pressure to treat existing pressure ulcers up to and including Stage 4 and can reduce the potential for them to develop. The Universal Therapy System (UTS) features unique weight-sensing technology that automatically determines the patient's current weight distribution and calculates where to increase and decrease pressure to help prevent tissue breakdown and encourage healing. Alternating pressure cycles last for ten minutes each to ensure frequent re-evaluation of weight distribution, resulting in optimal pressure reduction on sensitive, bonier areas. The slim-line air pump is less obtrusive than other alternating pressure surfaces on the market, as it is housed within the mattress itself and takes up no floor space. The pump features a CPR Quick Release system that will deflate the entire system within twenty seconds for emergency procedures. In-cell foam offers protection for the patient in the event of a power outage.
The pressure system is controlled with a simple hand remote; a power button turns the device on and off, a static button instigates continuous low pressure, and an auto button activates automatic alternating pressure. In addition to these, the remote features a manual override for comfort setting with a function status display for close monitoring. A rapid-inflate button allows the mattress to be filled quickly for moving and other patient handling. A lock/unlock feature with alarm and alarm mute indicator allows caregivers to lock the handset and prevent patients from changing setting unsupervised.
The alternating pressure cells and automatic weight sensor are housed in a zippered case for maintenance access; the case features hooks for attachment to a bed frame, handles for easy portability, and cable management sleeves. A removable nylon cover fully encases the mattress; the waterproof and moisture vapor permeable material features a polyurethane coating finish to protect the patient's skin. Beneath the nylon cover is a layer of soft, supportive foam that can be left on top of the alternating pressure cells to enhance patient comfort, or beneath the pressure cells to maximize the effects of alternating pressure.
