The Custom Care Convertible series of pressure redistribution surfaces is designed to help clinicians provide excellent patient care on both flat deck and recessed deck frames, facility wide.
A Therapy-ready surface for every bed
Flexibility has been designed into this next generation PressureGuard series. Both Custom Care Convertible models, easily convert to a powered surface with the simple addition of a control unit – an approach that can save significantly on the need for costly rentals.
Shear induced tissue trauma
Under the downward pressure of the user’s weight, tissue is compressed in the vertical plane beneath the bony prominences, trapping the skin. As the body moves, mechanical shearing forces are generated along the horizontal plan, causing damage deep within the tissue.
Vulnerable bony prominences
Without effective shear-reducing intervention, the skin and deep tissues are vulnerable to shear induced trauma at the scapula, sacrum and heels. This is intensified when the head of bed is elevated, pushing the user toward the foot of the bed.
Even, rotational shear, caused when the user is pivoted from the lying to sitting position or vice versa is minimized by Shear Transfer Zone technology.
