A Mattress Replacement System constructed of air cells
The Softcloud AIR is a mattress replacement system constructed of air cells that gently alternate to disperse unwanted pressure. Recommended for individuals at high risk of pressure ulcer development, it has a 12 minute cycle (1 in 2 cycle) and 3 static head cells to provide full comfort.
Intuitive control units
The SoftCloud control units benefit from an intuitive display which can be used to adjust comfort levels by providing either a 1 in 2 or 1 in 3 alternating pressure mode along with a static option.
Furthermore, an auto detect feature allows the control unit to automatically sense pressure from the body and adjust the pressure level accordingly. The control units feature both visual and audio alarms, which will activate in the event of low pressure or power failure and benefit from an alarm mute and panel lock function for ease of cleaning.
Prevention and management of pressure ulcers
Established alternating pressure technology is recommended for round the-clock prevention and management of pressure ulcers, when combined with an individualised monitoring, repositioning and wound care programme.
Healthcare professionals often encounter situations where a individual may not be able to tolerate, or have access to, frequent repositioning. In these circumstances, the EPUAP recommends using an active support system as part of a pressure ulcer prevention or management plan.
The Invacare SoftCloud™ mattresses and overlay are a range of high quality active support surfaces, designed for individuals at ‘Very High Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers. The alternating pressure within Invacare’s SoftCloud range has been designed to mimic the natural protective environment of regular spontaneous movement, by redistributing pressure several times each hour, even if the individual does not move.
