Description

The Propad Mattress Overlay is an overlay mattress made up of zoned castellated foam. The castellations conform to the body increasing the contact area with the skin, minimising shear and surface pressure with its outstanding pressure redistribution. Its unique vapor permeable cell structure ensures a well-aerated interior and allows the Propad Overlay to positively contribute to the microclimate of the skin.

The Invacare Propad range was introduced to the market over two decades ago and was very quickly an established and successful part of many pressure ulcer prevention strategies. The range consists of both overlays and cushions and is suitable for a 24 hour care plan. The success of the Propad range came from its unique construction with Invacare using only the highest quality materials from renowned UK suppliers and having been developed alongside key Healthcare Professionals.

The foam has unique geometrically-cut surface cells that were designed specifically to reduce shear, friction and peak pressures with a high quality polyurethane cover. The Propad range was one of the first to market with this innovative concept which can still be seen in new support surfaces of today.

The overlay is lightweight, available in a range of sizes and suitable for those considered at risk of developing pressure ulcers, making it ideal for the home care environment.

The foam core has independent, geometrically cut surface cells, which help reduce shear and friction, whilst increasing the overall support surface and reducing peak pressure. It features larger, more supportive cells at the centre and smaller cells at each end, enabling the mattress overlay to achieve even weight distribution by conforming to the shape and form of the body and enveloping bony prominences.
