Rober’s mattress systems are dynamic, meaning they move. Dynamic alternating pressure systems have a generally wider application for high risk patients. However they could be considered for any situation in which a sustained period with little movement is likely. Most of Rober’s range consist of air mattresses of numerous different designs with cells that inflate and deflate reciprocally underneath the patient. In this way the weight bearing areas are constantly changing.
Rober mattresses work on either a 2 cell or 3 cell cycle. The 3-cell option offers maximum protection against pressure ulcers, but could be considered for the least mobile or larger patient. Rober offers a range of mattress solutions to cater for all patient’s needs. For guidance on which mattress to choose, use our handy product selector.
