Airflex Overlay

2 Cell-Cycle Alternating Pressure Mattress Overlay

The AirFlex® OVERLAY is a high quality, cost effective, 2-cell cycle alternating pressure overlay mattress which provides excellent pressure relief, especially when placed on top of a high specification FoamTech pressure relieving mattress. It is a large cell, dynamic overlay designed to provide the changes in interface pressure required to stimulate reactive hyperaemia in the deep tissues surrounding the bony prominences.

The mattress has in-built pressure sensors that automatically adjust to a patient’s weight and changes in body position. It also features advanced engineering and a quality compressor that provides therapeutic treatment for patients weighing from 30 to 180 kg. The AirFlex® OVERLAY is fully automatic and recommended for the prevention of pressure injuries in high risk patients and especially those in long-term care - i.e. patients who have reduced mobility and are frail or underweight, and who are at high risk of developing pressure injuries.

Maximises Infection Control

  • Waterproof, vapour permeable, Dartex® covers provide micro-climate control at the skin/mattress interface
  • Soft, smooth covers reduce shear and friction as well as allowing easy wipe down when cleaning
  • Welded seams prevent the ingress of fluids into the mattress
  • 360° zip ensures cover can be easily removed for infection control and high temperature laundering
    Generous waterfall flap protects zip and the integrity of the air-cells

Available Sizes:
Single – 1880 x 880 x 100 mm (standard) / Max Patient Weight 180kg
