The Invacare Softform Premier Visco is a high specification pressure redistributing mattress suitable for those considered at ‘High Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers. It features a high density visco elastic foam insert temperature-sensitive to the body, allowing it to conform to body shape.
The Invacare Softform Premier Visco is a high specification pressure redistributing mattress suitable for those considered at ‘High Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers.
The Invacare Softform Premier Visco is constructed from a range of superior quality materials. The lower 'U' shaped layer is made up of robust high density foam, to prevent the mattress bottoming out and improve longevity. The central core includes a high density, visco elastic (memory) foam top section that warms to conform to the body shape, maximising the body contact area to give good pressure reduction.
The cover is made from a highly chemically resistant polyurethane polymer making it much more resistant to abrasion and damage and swells less with water contact. When cleaning a cover with ‘Strikethrough Resistant Technology®’, the material properties changes less than standard fabrics and thus reverts to its natural state very quickly. The time in which the cover is more prone to physical damage is significantly reduced.

This mattress will positively contribute to the outcome of a pressure ulcer prevention care plan. Education, clinical judgement 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 judgement). Informal assessment is considered to be of greater importance and clinical value. Please note: The cover is not Strikethrough proof. Misuse or incorrect care and handling can cause damage to the mattress cover. The Double and Kingsize mattresses are not available with the Strikethrough Resistant Technology® cover.
