The Hybrid-Power support surface combines the pressure redistributing properties of high specification foam, with dynamic therapy. Castellated visco-elastic foam delivers a high degree of pressure redistribution as it conforms to the shape of the body, while alternating cells assist with pressure relief when the power unit is in use. A turning pillow provides additional comfort for the patient.The time taken to move a patient out of bed to swap a support surface impacts on quality nursing time. If a patient requires a different therapy to be either 'stepped up' or 'stepped down', there can be a number of restraints. In addition, the costs associated with support surfaces can increase when two different surfaces are required.
The Acclaim Flow is a non-powered hybrid mattress replacement system using Air Flow Technology, a clever combination of air cells and foam developed to redistribute pressure. The system features automatically adjusting valves across 10 individual latitudinal air cells which respond to the patient's weight and movements without the need for a powered pump.
The Hybrid-Power Cushion combines the pressure redistribution properties of high specification foam, with alternating pressure redistribution and is suitable for use as part of a 24 hour plan of care. Clinicians can quickly and easily provide immediate therapy by initiating a 'step up/step down' process without the need to provide an additional specialist cushion.
