Added protection and comfort
- Multi stretch, breathable, waterproof cover with corner welds, reduces the opportunity for accumulation of dust and liquid residues.
- High frequency welded waterproof seams protect the mattress core from contamination.
- The base of the Softform Bariatric is made from a toughened PU coated material which is designed to extend the life of the mattress.
- The vapour permeable fabric allows the skin to breathe and can reduce the effects of skin damage caused by profuse sweating, which can be a common problem for many bariatric patients.
Integrated Glide System
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.
