About the QC1000
Luxury Quilted Homecare Cover
Homecare Style Comfort
HIGH STRETCH & LOW SHEAR CHARACTERISTICS
It may not look like a pressure care cover, but it sure is. The Luxury Quilted Homecare cover uses a 4-way stretch conforming open weave material for optimal pressure redistribution, immersion, and envelopment. The material is anti-friction and anti-shearing for the protection of vulnerable skin. It is a non-abrasive, smooth texture that does not grip skin. The material is woven with elastin to ensure Bi-Directional stretch is maintains for anatomically contouring and to prevent ‘hammocking’ and stretch taut beneath pronounced bony regions. In addition, this high-stretch material complements the multi-tiered foam structure and pressure-redistributing features of the mattress core.
Adverse Skin Micro-climate conditions (temperature, humidity, and airflow next to the skin surface) can significantly compromise skin integrity and weaken the skin leaving it more vulnerable to its environment. The build-up of moisture and/or heat typically leads to sweating therefore overhydration of this skin. Overhydration and excessive moisture soften the skin and connective tissue which leads to maceration and the breaking down of the elasticity of the skin. This weakening of the skin greatly increases the susceptibility to damage by environmental factors. In addition to this, sweating and overhydration remove natural oils from the skin, which are needed to lubricate and protect the skin.
As such, micro-climate is a risk factor that must be managed to prevent pressure injury occurrence on an at-risk patient, and a support surface is an important tool in managing micro-climate.
When incontinence or infection control is not a concern, the Luxury Quilted Homecare cover is a very effective means of managing micro-climate on a support surface. The woven structure of the material has superior breathability, encouraging air circulation.
Benefits of the quilted cover in relation to micro-climate?
- cooler sleep, prevents heat-related discomfort for ‘hot sleepers’
- reduces sweating
- excessive sweating is wicked away
- allows moisture and humidity present within the foams to easily escape for improved foam core performance and longevity
Traditionally, the solution for a excessively-sweating sleeper would mean the use of a 100% fluid proof cover or protector in order to protect the inner core of the mattress. Completely blocking off air flow in the mattress actually worsens sweating and can make sleeping extremely uncomfortable. A Luxury Woven cover will help to eradicate the sweating issue completely. Furthermore, excessive moisture against the skin significantly weakens the structure of your skin and can even cause moisture associated skin damage (MASD) or erosion.
All these benefits promote healthy micro-climate conditions at the skin interface, maximising skin integrity.
COMFORT & PATIENT COMPLIANCE
A win-win situation with the Luxury Quilted Pressure Care Cover.
The Quilted Cover has excellent stretch, friction reduction and micro-climate management characteristics but looks and feels comparable to a conventional residential mattress.
No prescriber wants their clinical recommendation for equipment rejected or ignored by their client, because they don’t like it or because they don’t feel like it. The Luxury Quilted cover is made from high-quality materials and truly offers luxury comfort and appearance that users love, yet prescribers can have peace of mind they are recommending a clinically proven pressure care cover.
This cover is not waterproof and is not designed to be washed frequently so is only suitable for clients that do not have risk of incontinence or if there are any other infection control requirements. As such, It is usually only used in the home and community application.
