Details

This unique overlay makes any bed more comfortable, and promotes a good sleep, while helping to protect all areas of the body that are vulnerable to pressure injury. An ideal choice for geriatric or palliative care, this soft overly is made from silicone coated cylindrical fibres covered by a breathable cotton/polyester cover.

Pressure injury or pressure ulcers can occur when someone sits or lies for too long in one position without moving or shifting their weight. Blood vessels take oxygen and nutrients to every part of the body, including the skin. Constant pressure in one area means that blood and nutrients are not able to reach the skin in this area. Tissue that is deprived of oxygen and other nutrients for even a short period of time will eventually die. This can lead to very serious complications, and cause great pain and suffering to patients.

These fibres are specially designed to retain their loft and not to flatten with prolonged use. The cylindrical shape helps to keep air flowing around the skin's surface, keeping skin healthy and helping to regulate your temperature. Offering good support and superior comfort, the special silicone coating also helps to reduce friction and shear – two factors that significantly contribute to the risk of a pressure ulcer. The silicone coating also helps to stop moisture from sweat or other bodily fluids from penetrating the mattress.

Covered with a breathable cotton/polyester fabric, the mattress overlay is flame retardant and machine washable with standard detergent. The overlay measures 1.9 metres long, 0.9 metres wide and is around 10 centimetres high. The maximum user weight is 100 kilograms.
