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
