2 Cell-Cycle Alternating Pressure Mattress Replacement System

AIRSTREAM 2 is a new generation, large cell, double layered, alternating pressure air mattress that provides effective care and protection from pressure injuries in patients at high and very high risk.

AIRSTREAM2 is a dynamic mattress that provides effective pressure relief which stimulates reactive hyperaemia in the deep tissues around the vulnerable bony prominences. The 10 minute, two cell-cycle action of AIRSTREAM2 will accelerate the healing of existing pressure injuries. In-built pressure sensors along with sophisticated electronic and pneumatic circuitry allows for efficient changes in air-cell pressures and automatic adjustment to patient weight and body position. Advanced engineering and a powerful compressor have enabled the creation of a dynamic support surface that is therapeutic for patients weighing up to 220 kg.

AIRSTREAM2 has an integrated air-cell structure whereby the air-cells in each layer are ultrasonically welded together providing 2 layers of conjoined cells held firmly in position by side clips. By holding the active cells in fixed positions, the removal of interface pressure during deflation is from exactly the same place it was applied when inflation occurred. Each deflating cell efficiently retracts away from body contact creating defined areas of high then low pressure.

The unique mattress construction of AIRSTREAM2 is comfortable and safe for even the most frail of patients. A permanently inflated base layer of longitudinally placed, conjoined air-cells contains a large volume of air at low pressure which enhances patient comfort and makes “bottoming out” impossible even with a patient sitting up in bed. Two extra-large air-cells along each side of this base layer provide a firm and stable edge to the mattress and protect patients from falls as they transfer out of bed to trolley or chair.

Clinically Proven Therapy

Automatically adjusts to patient weight and body position ensuring the patient receives optimum pressure area care at all times
10 minute cycle time provides regular periods of pressure relief
Low interface pressures for maximum patient comfort
Supportive but dynamic mattress surface replicates the body’s natural spontaneous movements and enhances quality of sleep
Permanently inflated side formers increase patient safety for bed exits or transfers to chair or trolley
Quiet power unit with intuitive display panel showing system status
Mattress remains inflated for at least 48 hours in the event of mains power failure
Profiling and knee-break feature allows patient to comfortably recline or sit up without compromising pressure care
Dual pressure settings improve comfort for frail patients without compromising pressure relief

Additional Nursing Support

Rapid mattress deflation for cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on activation of CPR Release
Audible and visual alarms provides peace of mind for nursing staff
Static mode provides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy, wound dressing and bed linen changes
Static mode automatically reverts to Alternating mode after 30 minutes
Comfort control feature in Static and Dynamic modes to suit individual patient comfort or clinical requirements
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
Includes simple to use Transport mode

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

Maximise Infection Control

Waterproof, multi-stretch, vapour permeable, Dartex® covers provide microclimate control at the skin/mattress interface and protect against the ingress of 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
Dual layers of joined cells can be easily wiped down and disinfected
Vapour permeable, waterproof Dartex® covers have an anti microbial agent incorporated in the polyurethane coating as an added protection against bacterial contamination
