The Softform Bariatric mattress provides a high level of patient comfort whilst offering effective pressure re-distribution.
Suitable for use on all types of profiling beds, including the Octave and SP755 wide.
Practical and durable, this mattress is suitable for those heavier patients that are considered at 'Very High Risk' of developing pressure ulcers.
The specialist cut foam for pressure redistribution distributes pressure evenly, reducing the risk
of pressure ulcers for bariatric patients who have limited range of movement. Many obese patients have difficultly lying flat due to breathing difficulties. The hinged backrest section of the the Softform Bariatric mattress will be an advantage to many.
Other features include multi-stretch, breathable, waterproof cover and an innovative integrated glide system (see below).
The ‘glide’ design and split section at the backrest section of the mattress enables it to conform effectively with a profiling bed. This significantly reduces inappropriate and unwanted patient movement that can contribute to tissue damage caused by shear and friction forces, so reducing the need for unnecessary moving and handling*, which can be a difficult task for this group of patients.
