Pressure ulcer prevention

The Invacare Softform Premier features a unique contoured insert pad which provides excellent individual comfort and optimises pressure reduction. The mattress cover positively helps to reduce shear and friction forces.

Cover is resistant to fluid ingress

Cover is two-way stretch waterproof polyurethane cover with high frequency welded seams; and a full length flap conceals the zip. These features combine to effectively reduce the potential of fluid ingress. Also features a toughed PU coated base to prolong the longevity of the mattress.

The mattress also comes with the option of a Strikethrough Resistant (SRT) cover. The ‘Strikethrough Resistant Technology®’ cover was specially developed in response to problems with spontaneous fluid ingress (strikethrough) in pressure reducing support surfaces. The result is a more durable mattress fortified for infection control, that will save wards time and money.
