Upgrade For Hybrid-Power Dynamic Mattress

Posted on April 18th 2018

Pressure area care products manufactured by Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare in the UK are subject to a constant process of review and improvement prompted by feedback from clinical staff working in both acute and long-term care environments.

Upgrade for Hybrid-Power

The Hybrid-Power mattress system successfully brings together the pressure redistribution properties of high specification foam with all the benefits of dynamic alternating pressure relief. Recent intensive trials carried out using this mattress have resulted in the implementation of an upgrade designed to further enhance the performance of this popular hybrid surface, particularly in terms of managing the incidence of pressure ulcers.

Extended heel zone for comfort and tissue viability

Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare has made a number of changes to the structure of the mattress. As a result, the heel zone now extends across the full width of the mattress to the edge, resulting in greater comfort for patients and reduced risk of heel damage.

The Hybrid-Power features alternating dynamic cells activated by a high-quality power unit which is reliable and intuitive to use. The mattress retains a turning pillow section for extra comfort and a non-slip mattress base for stability. Combining all the advantages of dynamic therapy and static foam performance means there is no need to move the patient from the bed when ‘stepping up’ to dynamic alternating mode or ‘stepping down’ to static mode.
