Product Description

Among specialty support surfaces PressureGuard® stands apart. Packed with technical innovations, every PressureGuard model combines the effectiveness of an air flotation system with the unmatched stability and safety of a multi-component engineered foam shell.

Alternating Pressure Air Therapy

Unlike other alternating pressure mattresses, the PressureGuard APM does not create extreme pressure gradients between inflated and deflated cylinders.

On top, the Geo-Matt anti-shearing surface forms a comfortable, therapeutic interface between the air system and the user. It absorbs and smoothes sharp pressure drop-offs that other surfaces can't, while the air system does the "heavy lifting" below, alternating weight-bearing across the surface in ten-minute cycles.

Six cylinders are programmed to inflate/deflate in a four-up-two-down pattern, ensures maximum patient support throughout the cycle.

Digital control unit features

  • up to four times the air output of conventional units
  • eight electronically-controlled comfort settings
  • programmable cycle times of 20, 25, 30, or 35 minutes
  • low-pressure indicator and audible alarm

Other standard PressureGuard features include the exclusive Heel Slope taper, and two-part Safety-Edge bolster system for added stability when sitting or transferring.

Pump  Conforms to UL 60602-1, CAN/CSA C22.2 NO.601.1
