Pressure care and infection control are top priorities in a patient mattress – even low tech Continuous Low Pressure (CLP) versions used on patient trolleys, stretchers and operating tables.
The key is finding the most effective combination of materials and construction at a reasonable cost: such as Anetic Aid’s independently tested K8 pressure care mattress.
Evidence suggests any patient undergoing surgery for more than three hours faces a risk of developing pressure sores, due to immobility during the operation and use of anaesthesia. Our research and experience suggests:
A significant proportion of the overall depth of the foam core should be a minimum density of 48kg/m³ and 210 N hardness high quality elastic foam
Only a small proportion of the overall depth of the foam core should be given to viscoelastic foam which should be a minimum density of 58kg/m³ and 70 N hardness
