What’s more, the European Ulcer Advisor Panel advises that minimising skin pressure and shear is a critical preventive measure when it comes to pressure ulcers. Hence, using a pressure-reducing mattress is beneficial, even for users who are not at immediate risk of developing pressure ulcers.

Our standard mattresses provide ultimate comfort and support

Invacare’s range of standard single mattresses and overlays includes solutions from the Softform and Essential families of mattresses. They offer a varying degree of protection from pressure ulcers. 

Our standard Softform model is a replacement mattress made of high specification foam, which provides excellent comfort and pressure redistribution at an affordable price. 

The castellated foam insert pad for the standard mattress is uniquely contoured to adapt to the body’s position and movements. It is suitable for users at very high risk of developing pressure ulcers, and this model also adapts well when profiled on electric bed frames.  The single-piece core features side-wall support which allows for a smooth patient transfer. The durable base is resistant to bottoming and does not require turning or rotating. 

The standard mattress comes with a two-way stretch waterproof polyurethane cover with a flap concealing the zip. The cover is resistant to fluid ingress and is zipped on four sides, providing easy detachment for inspection and cleaning. 

We also offer solutions for users who do not require therapy for pressure ulcers, but would still benefit from a high-quality, comfortable and supportive mattress. 

Another option is the entry-level pressure distributing mattress, made of castellated foam which provides ultimate comfort and effective pressure distribution. This mattress is suitable for 'at-risk' and 'high risk' users and offers a cost-effective solution for homecare and residential care environments. 

The covers of these mattresses are made of multi-stretch vapour-permeable water-resistant polyurethane. They are zipped on three sides for convenient inspection and cleaning.
