Optimal support at the touch of a button

The Softform Premier Active 2 hybrid mattress replacement system delivers optimal support at the touch of a button.

The clinically proven interface of the Softform Premier foam mattress combined with active alternating air cells, assists in the prevention and management of pressure ulcers when combined with an individual and comprehensive pressure ulcer protocol.

The comfortable individual interface ensures that therapy is delivered without compromise and a step-up of support surface is provided without disturbance.

'Very High Risk' static surface

A high specification foam interface offers a comfortable and effective pressure redistributing surface for individuals at 'Very High Risk' of developing pressure ulcers. The foam is specifically cut for effective contouring, microclimate management and pressure redistribution. The static surface can be 'stepped up' easily and quickly with the addition of the control unit to assist in the treatment of severe pressure ulcers.

Alternating Surface

At the touch of a button, the unit can be activated. The static surface is quickly and easily transformed into an effective therapeutic surface to assist in the treatment of pressure ulcers without compromising individual comfort. The air cells inflate and deflate alternately beneath the individual, to effectively transfer pressure from one area to another. Firm side formers provide a stable transfer edge, offering security to the individual.

Hybrid technology

The combination of foam interface and specially designed bow shaped cells working together offers a complete solution to all individual groups in the prevention and healing of pressure ulcers. With the addition or removal of the control unit the individual can quickly be stepped up or stepped down with therapy as required.

Features:

Air cell design

Air cell design

The air cells offer a stable support surface along with improved comfort for the individual. The bow shape of the air cells ergonomically cradle the individual’s body shape, catering for a wide range of body shapes with varying weight distribution.

Designed to reduce tissue damage as a result of shear

Designed to reduce tissue damage as a result of shear

The Softform Premier Active 2 mattress offers an innovative glide mechanism, which significantly reduces shear forces when used with an electric profiling bed.

Concealed hose

In the unlikely event of a power failure, the individual will remain on a 'Very High Risk' pressure reducing surface, minimising the risk of pressure damage.

Cable and hose management

Cable and hose management

The cables and hose can be fastened to the mattress to reduce the risk of damage and contamination, for added safety.

All components are easily and economically replaceable, contributing to lower cost of ownership.

A complete individual centric solution

A complete individual centric solution

The Softform Premier Active 2 mattress combines the pressure redistributing qualities of specially cut foam castellations at the individual interface, with air cells beneath which can be inflated as required to provide active therapy.

This construction ensures the individual is always supported by enveloping supportive high specification foam, whether the therapy unit, (powering the air cells), is switched on or off. The comfortable high specification foam provides effective pressure redistribution and ensures comfort is maintained at all times (NICE Clinical Guideline 179, September 2014).

Mattress is manufactured to: European Standard: BS EN 597-1 Cig European Standard: BS EN 597-2 Match BS7177:1996 Crib 5. Pump Noise Level: 32Db Cycle Time: 10 minutes (1 in 2 cycle)Essential nursing care is pivotal in pressure ulcer prevention. This mattress will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgment and action based planning based on vulnerability are fundamental factors in the prevention of pressure ulcers. A range of assessment scales can be used as a formal method of assessing risk from pressure ulcer development, and should be used in conjunction with an informal assessment (informed nursing judgment).
