Controlling a patient’s microclimate improves comfort and helps maintain skin integrity. A support surface with graphite visco-elastic foam reduces body heat retention and provides the patient with optimum pressure redistribution. Strikethrough is reduced with the Acclaim Cool 4G waterproof, multi-stretch and vapour permeable cover. In addition, the cover is fully welded and the zip is concealed to reduce fluid ingress. Patient transfers are enhanced with high density foam side formers, providing additional support where needed.
