The Invacare Softform Premier Maxiglide high-specification foam mattress offers a new and innovative glide mechanism that significantly reduces shear and friction forces when used with an electric profiling bed.
The patented design of the mattress allows the top surface to provide excellent pressure redistributing properties along with a high level of comfort and support, whilst the base of the mattress uniquely separates to conform to the bedframe.
The Softform Premier Maxiglide is suitable for use with those who are considered to be at ‘very high risk’ of developing pressure ulcers.

Reduces the need for manual handling
The profiling mattress maximises the benefits of an electric profiling bed, delivering improved positioning whilst reducing the requirement for repositioning the client.

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. These include:
- 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.
