A number of different types of support surfaces are available and no single support surface has been shown to consistently perform better than all others under all circumstances
Medistore has recently introduced a ‘foam and air’ combination mattress to its range of therapeutic pressure surfaces. As the name suggests a foam-air combination pressure surface consists of a mattress base constructed of foam blocks, with a hollowed out section to allow the insertion of multiple air cells.
Download the current edition of Medistore Insight to learn more about the features and benefits of the PressureGuard CFT® from Span America and look at the circumstances for which the foam-air surface is ideally suited.
when should a foam-air surface be used?
Ideally suited for palliative care or recovering residents, a foam-air pressure surface should be considered as a “step-down” product that bridges between a full alternating pressure mattress and a static mattress.
Ultimately, the type of support surface best for each individual will depend on a number of different factors. Our Insight article explores some of the key differences between alternating and static surfaces to help identify ideal circumstances.
