The Benefit of an Alternating Pressure System in Bariatric Mattresses

The bariatric alternating pressure mattress offers a system of care that is especially important for patients that cannot be repositioned frequently. Suitable for use in critical care and end of life care, for spinal patients and bariatric care, alternating pressure ensures that the patient is comfortable and enveloped, preventing pressure sores and ensuring that bony prominences are supported.

The active surface of these mattresses uses air to inflate and deflate different sections to redistribute pressure across the contact surface.

The Zephair range is perfect for use as a bariatric pressure mattress and offers unprecedented patient comfort in any situation up to 180kg. The Zephair Air System combines Airoform Immersion static foam technology, deep 22 cell alternating air system, A quiet and unobtrusive air flow generator alongside modular design makes the Zephair Air System a reliable option for high-level care as a bariatric medical pressure mattress.

The dual stretch, waterproof and breathable cover is an important part of the set up of a bariatric pressure relief mattress. Although the alternating pressure is designed to counteract pressure injuries when patients are not repositioned, the cover provides a reliable surface to make transfer and repositioning simpler. As a waterproof and breathable cover, it also provides a better microclimate, ensuring even heat dissipation and allowing moisture to evaporate. It can stand up to cleaning with harsh chemicals, so it is better for infection control within a facility or use at home.
