2 Cell-Cycle Alternating Pressure Air Overlay

AIRSTREAM is a large cell, dynamic overlay mattress that provides the rapid changes in airflow required to stimulate reactive hyperaemia in the deep tissues about the bony prominences.

This highly efficient, 2 cell-cycle alternating overlay provides excellent relief of deep pressure, especially if placed on top of a high specification foam pressure-relieving mattress. Advanced engineering and a powerful compressor result in a dynamic support surface that is suitable for patients weighing from 30 to 180 kg.

A single layer of 18 individual air-cells are held in a fixed position beneath the body by firm attachment to longitudinally placed, permanently inflated, side formers. The side formers prevent bed rail entrapment and increase patient safety during bed exits and transfers to chair or trolley. This firm edge makes Airstream the alternating pressure overlay mattress of choice when nursing elderly patients with a high fall risk.

AIRSTREAM is fully automatic and recommended for the treatment and prevention of pressure injury in both acute and long term care facilities as well as in the community.

Patient Safety and Comfort

  • 10 minute cycle time provides regular periods of pressure relief
  • Wide diameter tubing throughout the overlay enables rapid air cell deflation 6 times per hour
  • Low interface pressures maximise patient comfort
  • Dual pressure settings improve comfort for frail patients without compromising pressure relief
  • Adjustable comfort control within static and dynamic modes suit patient and clinical requirements
  • Supportive but dynamic overlay enhances quality of sleep
  • Permanently inflated side formers increase patient safety for bed exits or transfers to chair or trolley
  • Automatic adjustment to patient weight and body position
  • Quiet power unit with display panel shows system status

Profiling and knee-break facility allows patient to comfortably recline or sit up without compromising pressure care

Microclimate Control

  • Optimised moisture vapour transmission rate of the Dartex® cover allows control of the microclimate
  • Reduction of both temperature and moisture at the skin/mattress interface decreases the risk of pressure injury as well as enhancing patient comfort

Additional Nursing Support

  • CPR Release ensures rapid deflation on demand
  • Audible and visual alarms provide peace of mind for nursing staff
  • Static mode provides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy, wound dressing and linen changing
  • Static mode reverts to alternating after 30 minutes for convenience
  • Side formers offer additional support to patients who are at risk of falls or when transferring to chair or trolley
  • Transport mode ensures the mattress remains inflated for 8 hours in the event of a mains power failure
  • Cable management system ensures power cable can be safely and securely retained
  • V-Lock system prevents accidental disconnection of the power cord

Maximise Infection Control

  •  Waterproof Dartex® cover provides, multi-stretch, vapour-permeable microclimate control at the skin/mattress interface and protect against body fluids
  • 360° zip protected by a generous waterfall flap allows covers to be easily removed for infection control and high temperature laundering
  • Smooth covers reduce shear and friction and allow for easy wipe down with disinfectant
  • Antimicrobial coating on Dartex® cover provides added protection against bacterial contamination
