Novis Bariatric Alternating Pressure Mattress (APM) Expandable Width
The Bariatric Expandable Width APM increases the lateral support and stability with reinforced side bolsters. Alternating air mattress system for the prevention and treatment of skin breakdown and pressure injuries in patients of high to very high risk. It is designed to replace the existing bed mattress on either a standard or profiling electric bed frame.
The system is constructed from transverse air cells that cyclically inflate and deflate in an alternating pattern, providing gentle and dynamic support. Cyclic alternation of pressure prevents arterial and venous capillary occlusion in the patient’s surface tissue – maintaining and stimulating the flow of blood and lymphatic fluids through these tissues to provide essential oxygen.
Adaptive Alternating Pressure: Provides advanced pressure relief for individuals with higher weight requirements, ensuring comfort and reducing the risk of pressure sores.
Automatic Fowler Boost: Equipped with an automatic Fowler Boost feature that activates when the bed is profiled. Helps to optimise the mattress’s pressure distribution when the bed’s position is adjusted, further enhancing comfort and pressure relief.
High Weight Capacity: Suitable for bariatric pressure care with an impressive weight capacity of up to 454 kg, offering robust support for heavier individuals.
Designed for Larger Beds: Specifically designed to fit larger size or expandable width beds.
Adjustable Width and Length: Offers options for expandable width (36”, 42”, 48”) and expandable length (80”, 85”, 90”).
Reinforced Side Bolsters: Enhanced lateral support and stability are provided by reinforced side bolsters, ensuring that users remain safely positioned on the mattress.
