Air System Bariatric Mattresses

Our Zephair range offers true leadership in patient care and comfort for facilities and homecare situations. We have created an air mattress for bariatric patients that is suitable for gentle critical care, pressure injury prevention and pain management.

The Zephair system offers stability, falls risk prevention, comfort, and compliance in any setting, and can be configured to suit patients needs. The range is available in single up to bariatric size, to make sure that all patients can remain comfortable and dignified.

As a bariatric medical air mattress, the Zephair Air System makes powered patient care for very high-risk patients on ICU wards, palliative, and aged care, or those needing spinal care simple. The mattress itself is built on a firm base foam layer, layered with a deep 22 cell alternating air system that is powered by a quiet and efficient air flow generator. On top of this is a combination of Airoform Immersion foams. We create a dual stretch waterproof and breathable cover to ensure that the mattress is easy to keep clean and minimise the risk of infections.

The shear mitigation that is built into all the layers means that when an immobile patient needs to be repositioned or transferred, the mattress maintains full integrity. The immersive top layer is breathable and waterproof, providing support and comfort as well as enveloping bony prominences. The combination of immersion and alternating pressure is perhaps even more important when looking into a bariatric hospital air mattress. Preventing and treating pressure injuries on bariatric patients can be more complicated when there is a lack of patient mobility, so alternating air pressure is a great way to help.
