This alternating pressure mattress system from Drive Medical is meant to redistribute pressure to help prevent skin maceration in bedridden patients. This system combines both alternating pressure and low air loss to create better pressure redistribution. This pressure redistribution system uses cell-on-cell design prevents "bottoming out" for more comfort and better pressure redistribution. Plus, this cell-design provides up to 24 hours of power outage protection. The pump included in this system is digital, which allows you more customization to provide the patient comfort tailored to the patient's own preferences. The pump has 2 modes of operation: static and alternating pressure modes. If left on static mode for more than 2 hours, the pump will automatically revert back to alternating pressure mode.
The mattress itself has a 4-way cover that is low sheer, moisture resistant, vapor permeable (breathable), quilted, and zippered for full protection. Also, the mattress consists of twenty 8" air bladder cells that can be easily removed in case one becomes damaged. For more comfort, the mattress has a pillow function that maintains the pressure in the 3 air cells at the head of the mattress. Plus, this mattress has a CPR valve that allows you to rapidly deflate the mattress if necessary. To make diagnosing problems easier and more efficient, this system features 3 diagnostic alarms to notify you if the problem is with the mattress or the pump. Mattress dimensions: 36"W x 80"L x 8"H. Weight capacity: 450 lbs.
