The unique patented design of the Invacare Softform Premier Active features an alternating air insert beneath the castellated foam of the tried and trusted Softform Premier mattress.
The mattress retains its properties as a ‘High/Very High Risk’ (Waterlow score – 20)* static surface, but should a patient require stepping up to a dynamic surface, a discreet pump can be fitted to the air insert, transforming the mattress into an alternating surface delivering additional levels of pressure relief. There is no requirement to transfer the client, thereby minimising any discomfort.
Innovative Step Up/Step Down approach
The Invacare Softform Premier Active offers a unique and innovative ‘Step Up/Step Down’ approach, which avoids the need to replace a complete mattress system, therefore ensuring minimal disruption to the client. The insert consists of air cells that alternate on a ten minute cycle beneath the foam insert, delivering a very low impact at the point of change, thereby delivering high levels of comfort in addition to improved pressure reduction. The Softform Premier Active is particularly suitable for those who may find a more traditional dynamic system unpleasant, due to movement and vibration.
Pump automatically assesses weight
Sensory software within the pump can gauge the client’s weight enabling pressure to be maintained at an appropriate level. In addition, the top layer of the ‘High/Very High Risk’ castellated foam ensures the client is fully supported in the event of a power failure. The pump is also fully alarmed in case of power failure.
