The Invacare Softform Premier Active 2 is equipped with excellent features to offer health professionals a dynamic therapeutic support surface with additional levels of pressure relief.
The mattress comes with the Active 2 RX Control Unit, which allows users to deliver optimal client support at the touch of a button via active alternating air cells.
These alternating air cells work together with the clinically proven interface of the Softform Premier Foam mattress to assist in the prevention of pressure ulcers, thus allowing adequate support.

Softform Premier Active 2 features
Air cell design
Invacare bow-shaped air cells ergonomically cradle the patients body shape, enhancing immersion and optimizing pressure redistribution for all patient proportions.
The connecting hose from the mattress to the power unit is fully covered with a welded PU sleeve. This enhanced protection ensures effective infection control.
A simple popper system along the edge of the mattress base, ensure the power cable is secured safely while the power unit is in use.
Innovative glide mechanism
Shear forces are a major contributing factor in the development of pressure ulcers (EPUAP Clinical Practice Guidelines, 2014)
High specification foam interface
in the event of power failure, the patient remains supported by high specification foam. This alleviates the need for urgent intervention and mattress replacement.
Cost saving modular construction
All components are easily and economically replaceable, contributing to lower cost of ownership.
Softform Premier Active 2 RX static surface can be easily ‘stepped up’ with the addition of the new control unit, further assisting in the treatment of severe pressure ulcers.
The patient is always supported
This softform mattress combines the pressure redistributing qualities of specially cut foam castellations at the patient interface, with air cells beneath which can be inflated as required to provide active therapy. This construction ensures the patient is always supported by enveloping supportive high specification foam, whether the control unit (powering the air cells) is switched on or off.
The comfortable high specification foam provides effective pressure redistribution and ensures comfort is maintained at all times.

Preventing pressure ulcers
It can be challenging to prevent pressure ulcers completely, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.
- Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
- Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – this will be done by your care team if you’re in a hospital or care home
- Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
- Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation
If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
