The Curative Bariatric Cushion has been developed to support the differing body shapes and weights from the heavier patient group. This specialist area of healthcare has additional levels of concerns to consider which include a greater redistribution of the weight, additional support and airflow. To address these areas a new wave effect pattern has been developed to maximise comfort and to minimise the opportunity of pressure sores and ulcers.
The wave pattern changes across the length of the mattress to optimise pressure distribution in key areas. At both ends of the cushion they have a smaller depth of wave to enhance the density and comfort. As the cushion gets closer to the centre, the depth and width of the wave increase for greater re-distribution of pressure and airflow.
This high-risk Bariatric cushion has been designed to be used with residents up to 50 stone (317kgs). The multi-stretch material encapsulates the cushion using high-frequency welding to prevent fluid ingress and removes the opportunity of liquid contamination that would damage the cushion.
Its non-slip base will secure the cushion in place when residents stand or sit in a wheelchair or lounge chairs.
Fully compliant to British Standards and exceeds Crib 5 composite flame-retardant testing (BS7177), the Curative Bariatric cushion will provide optimum comfort and safety for your residents.
