Every air cell contains specialist pressure redistributing foam. In the non-powered state this provides a reactive, constant low pressure support surface for basic pressure area care needs
Once connected to the power unit, the air cells operate as an active therapy surface providing an 8 minute, 1-in-2 cell cycle which offers regular pressure redistribution for patients at an elevated risk of pressure ulcers.
The FUSION Hybrid support surface is designed in 3 zones to provide specific support to the head, torso and heels. The cells in the heel zone are intentionally smaller to help protect this vulnerable area of the patient.
Where patients need to sit out of bed, the FUSION Hybrid power unit can be used to power an active seat cushion for 24-hour, round the clock care.
The multi-stretch cover helps reduce shear and friction during patient movement or manual repositioning and assists tissue offloading during cell deflation. Waterproof, yet breathable, all seams are welded to protect the inside of the mattress from fluid ingress.
The intuitive, simply designed interface and easy touch buttons allow the carer to control the Soft, Medium and Firm comfort settings when in active mode.
