2 Cell-Cycle Alternating Pressure Mattress Overlay

AirFlex® OVERLAY is a high quality, cost effective, 2-cell cycle alternating pressure overlay mattress which provides excellent pressure relief, especially when placed on top of a high specification foam pressure relieving mattress. It is a large cell, dynamic overlay designed to provide the changes in interface pressure required to stimulate reactive hyperaemia in the deep tissues surrounding the bony prominences.

The mattress has in-built pressure sensors that automatically adjust to a patient’s weight and changes in body position. It also features advanced engineering and a quality compressor that provides therapeutic treatment for patients weighing from 30 to 180 kg. The AirFlex® OVERLAY is fully automatic and recommended for the prevention of pressure injuries in high risk patients and especially those in long-term care.

AirFlex® OVERLAY is part of the new innovative ‘cost effective’ range of mattress solutions designed to fulfil the requirements of ‘affordable healthcare.’

Patient Safety and Comfort

10 minute alternating pressure 2 cell-cycle provides effective pressure variation through continuous cell inflation/deflation
Low interface pressures for maximum patient comfort
Dual pressure settings improve comfort for frail and underweight patients without compromising pressure relief
Fully automatic adjustment to patient’s weight and body position

Additional Nursing Support

Audible and visual alarms provide peace of mind for nursing staff
Rapid deflation on release of CPR connector
Dual comfort settings within both Static and Dynamic modes
Static mode defaults to Alternating mode after 30 minutes
Static mode provides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy, wound dressing and bed linen changes
Transport mode ensures the mattress remains inflated for 8 hours in the event of a mains power failure
V-Lock system prevents accidental disconnection of the power cord

Maximises Infection Control

Waterproof, vapour permeable, Dartex® covers provide microclimate control at the skin/mattress interface
Soft, smooth covers reduce shear and friction as well as allowing easy wipe down when cleaning
Welded seams prevent the ingress of fluids into the mattress
360° zip ensures cover can be easily removed for infection control and high temperature laundering
Generous waterfall flap protects zip and the integrity of the air-cells
