The Invacare Softform Premier Visco is a high specification pressure redistributing mattress suitable for those at ‘high risk of developing pressure ulcers. It features a high-density viscoelastic foam insert temperature-sensitive to the body, allowing it to conform to body shape.
The Softform Premier Visco by Invacare is one of the most advanced anti-decubitus mattresses in the Softform saga, being a real gem as far as rest mattresses is concerned. Created by a set of parts in a modular way, this mattress in addition to being durable, allows the replacement of any part that is damaged separately, it can even be replaced by castellated foam if so required.
The material layer where the body rests is composed is visco-elastic, which has a high density and at the same time is sensitive to body temperature, qualities that make this mattress mold to the user’s body, giving it unmatched comfort and minimising pressure peaks.
But not only that, given its ability to adapt to the body, it also has the property of avoiding excess pressure in the body that can trigger pressure ulcers, which makes it ideal for patients who need to be a long time in bed.

Comfort and pressure redistribution combined.
The Invacare Softform Premier Visco is constructed from a range of superior quality materials. The lower ‘U’ shaped layer is robust high-density foam to prevent the mattress from bottoming out and improve longevity.
The central core includes a high density, viscoelastic (memory) foam top section that warms to conform to the body shape, maximising the body contact area to reduce good pressure.
Strikethrough Resistant Technology
The cover is made from a highly chemically resistant polyurethane polymer, making it more resistant to abrasion and damage and swells less with water contact. When cleaning a cover with ‘Strikethrough Resistant Technology®’, the material properties change less than standard fabrics and thus revert to their natural state very quickly. As a result, the time when the cover is more prone to physical damage is significantly reduced.

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.
