Air-Layer Mattress


Pressure redistribution reduces the risk of pressure ulcers. By increasing the contact area of the support surface, a higher degree of pressure redistribution can be achieved. The risk of skin breakdown is reduced if the patient’s microclimate is controlled. The ‘Air-Layer’ reduces heat and vapour transfer rates between the patient and support surface, while the visco-elastic foam conforms to the body redistributing pressure.

The Air-Layer reduces the risk of infection with welded seams and a concealed zip on the mattress cover. In addition, the mattress
cover is water resistant, multi-stretch and vapour permeable.

    *Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare follow the NICE Clinical Guidance (CG179, Published April 2014) when indicating product risk factors.

    At Risk
    Adults considered to be at risk of developing a pressure ulcer
    are those who, after assessment using clinical judgement and/or a validated
    risk assessment tool (these include The Braden Scale, The Waterlow
    Score or The Norton Risk-Assessment Scale), are considered to be at risk of
    developing a pressure ulcer.

    At High Risk
    Adults considered to be at high risk of developing a pressure ulcer will
    usually have multiple risk factors (for example, significantly limited mobility,
    nutritional deficiency, inability to reposition themselves, significant
    cognitive impairment) identified during risk assessment with or without
    a validated risk assessment tool.
