    Key features

    Artemis II Pump

    Offering a wide range of modes to provide effective pressure redistribution;
    • Alternating Therapy Mode – providing pressure relief over a 10 (default), 15 or 20 minute cycle in a AB (2 in 1) pattern.
    • Constant Low Pressure (CLP) Therapy Mode – creating a static low pressure surface allowing immersion into the mattress providing pressure redistribution.
    • Pulsation Mode - alternately increases and decreases the cell pressures by 30% whilst in Constant Low Pressure mode.
    Max Inflate Mode automatically inflates all cells to the maximum pressure setting 5 (Firm). This can be beneficial when moving or repositioning a patient.
    Automatic Pressure Control - The control unit automatically adjusts internal pressure to the optimum level based on patient weight. The system will continue to monitor patient weight every 60 minutes or if the system detects a significant change in weight.
    Low Patient Weight - Featuring a Low Patient Weight mode which reduces internal cell pressures further to provide pressure redistribution and comfort for patients typically under 40kgs (Clinical judgement should be used along with a full patient risk assessment).
    Comfort Control - The cell pressure determined by the Automatic Pressure Control System can be manually adjusted via the Comfort Control to provide maximum user comfort.
    Auto Surface Detection - The Artemis II Pump is designed to be used in conjunction with both a Artemis II Mattress or Artemis II Cushions (18’’or 20’’) - the system will automatically recognise which surface type has been connected.
    Audible and Visual Alerts
    • Egress Alert - Once activated, the pump provides an audio-visual alert if the system senses that the occupant has exited the bed.
    • Power Failure – An audible alert will sound and the power failure LED will illuminate on the pump.
    • Service Interval Alert - An audio-visual signal activates after 365 days (8,760 hours) to indicate that a service is due.
    • Mute button - Once the audible alert has been acknowledged the alert can be muted while the cause is investigated. The alert will reactivate after 20 minutes if the fault hasn’t been rectified.
    Auto Lockout - The pump will lockout after 2 minutes of inactivity to prevent accidental setting changes.
    Accessible rear filter for ease of maintenance.
    Integral hanging hooks enable the pump to be suspended
    Fully EN 60601-1, EN 60601-1-2 and EN 60601-1-11 compliant.

    Artemis II Cushions

    Individual cell's 'air on air' construction reduces the risk of 'bottoming out' as the lower section of each cell remains inflated to provide a supportive base. The Artemis II 18'' Cushion includes 9 cells and the 20'' Cushion includes 10 cells providing an increased surface area when required.
    The Artemis II offers a Transport Mode; to utilise this facility the umbilical connector is simply disconnected from the pump and the non-return valve within the connector seals and prevents air from escaping. The Transport Mode can be used for up to 10 hours to ensure that the support surface provides pressure redistribution in power outages or when transportation is required.
    The top Dartex® covers are multi stretch, water resistant and vapour permeable.
    An anti-fungal agent is encapsulated in the covers to help control microbial deterioration. They feature a white inner substrate to assist in identifying signs of cover damage and strike-through.
    A 360° zip allows ease of access to the internal cells and the welded seams and waterfall flap reduce risk of fluid ingress.
    The cushions feature a length adjustable securing strap with a male/female buckle.
