About this product
The NHC High Risk Combination Mattress, a state-of-the-art product designed to provide exceptional comfort, infection control, and pressure relief for individuals in care homes at Very High Risk (up to and including Grade IV pressure ulcer) of developing pressure ulcers.
- Fully Welded, Multi-stretch, vapour permeable fabric: The mattress features a specially designed multi-stretch fabric that allows for high moisture vapour transfer rate (MVTR), maximising airflow to the patient's skin surface. This helps keep the skin dry and reduces the susceptibility to tissue damage. The hospital-grade polyurethane (PU) fabric coating ensures resistance to regular cleaning, promoting a hygienic environment.
- Safer Heel Solution: The clinically proven lower leg section redistributes pressure from the heel to the upper leg (calve). By utilising a greater surface area, the mattress creates minimal heel-to-surface contact, reducing the risk of pressure ulcers on the heels.
- CME Foam surround & base: The mattress's CME Foam surround and base maintain pelvic stability during transfer and aid in moving and handling processes, promoting resident safety and comfort.
- High-Quality Foam Filled Cell Technology: The mattress features foam-filled alternating cells that automatically adjust to the resident's comfort level, providing superior pressure relief, comparable to the very best pressure-relieving surfaces.
- Active Therapy Mode (with pump): By adding a digital pump to the mattress, dynamic or alternating pressure therapy can be provided, upgrading the therapy level from that of a static mattress to meet the needs of residents at Very High Risk.
- Comfort Mode Selection: The digital pump allows for precise adjustment in smaller increments of 5kg, ensuring ultra-low-pressure delivery for lightweight and frail individuals. The mattress delivers pressure from 10mmgh to a maximum of 52mmgh, providing outstanding interface pressure specific to the user's body weight.
- Clever Hose Management Chamber: The mattress features a Hose Management Chamber that offers a completely enclosed compartment inside the cover, preventing potential infection and damage from misuse.
- CPR Function: In emergencies, the mattress can be detached from the pump for CPR administration. Foam-filled cells under low pressure enable CPR while inflated, avoiding the frantic search for a CPR function.
- Easy Transportation: Workplace Health and Safety handles are integrated into the sides of the mattress cover, facilitating easy relocation for maintenance staff. The handles are positioned under a protecting "cover-flap" to ensure effective infection control.
- Risk Factor: Very High Risk (up to and including Grade IV pressure ulcer)
- Advisory Weight Limits: 40 stone or 254 kgs
- Mattress Dimensions: 198cm x 88cm x 16cm (sloping to 9cm at Heel end) - suitable for most homecare beds, with other sizes available upon request.
- Mattress Weight: <9kgs (lightweight and easy to handle)
- Cycle Time: 1 in 2 (The mattress alternates inflation and deflation of cells every 11.5 minutes to reduce pressure points effectively.)
- Noise Output: Ultra-low - 45db (ensuring minimal disturbance)
