IQ Medical will be introducing a new Static Air Mattress into our portfolio of Pressure Relieving Systems soon.
The system will be a combination of air displacement technology with high density castellated foam sections for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment. The valve system will adjust to the surface weight and movement.
Due to the increasing costs in energy, some patients are becoming increasingly concerned about using anything that has a plug on it. We know from conducting tests that our Dynamic systems use a minimal amount of electricity, however we feel this new addition will address patient concern and provide an excellent alternative for this cohort of patients. This will also reduce the demands of PAT Testing and servicing on EBME Departments.
We wanted to ensure that we get it right first time by incorporating only the features that both the patient and caregivers need. We are currently working with a focus group consisting of OTs, Tissue Viability Nurses, Community Loan Stores and patients. Focus feedback concurred that the most expensive systems have too many bells and whistles and are therefore too complicated to use. We are very grateful for their valuable input.
This system is ideal for both the community and acute settings.
