Manufacturer's product description

Advance Cover Tecnology The Air-Layer Advance mattress is fully encased in an advanced outer cover material; constructed of a denser interlock knit polyurethane fabric, it provides greater weld strength and improved durability during general use. These features combine to enhance the cover's resistance to fluid ingress and reduce its susceptibility to damage. Pressure Area Care The Air-Layer Advance combines the traditional benefits of a visco-elastic mattress with the latest air layer technology, to deliver optimum pressure reduction and exceptional patient comfort. The unique air layer surface helps to improve the micro-climate between the patient and the support surface by reducing heat and vapour transfer rates by up to 25 percent. Proven Patient Outcomes Improved micro-climate - unique surface air layer reduces heat and vapour transfer rates between the patient and the support surface Minimised peak pressures - visco-elastic foam conforms to the body, helping to reduce pressure around the most vulnerable bony prominences Optimum pressure reduction - high specification foam contributes to an effective pressure ulcer prevention plan Reduced shear and friction forces - smooth multi-stretch cover allows the patient to glide over the surface of the mattress Infection Prevention Waterproof, vapour permeable cover can be easily wiped clean High frequency welded seams reduce the risk of fluid ingress Zip is protected by a double sided, full length welded flap Cover can be removed and laundered at 80 degrees C Benefits for Healthcare Professionals Mattress best practice guidelines clearly printed on the cover To reduce manual handing procedures the mattress does not require turning.
