Home Care

An outstanding feature of the Span-America Homecare product series is our ability to supply three of our popular PressureGuard® mattress systems in king, queen, full, full long or dual (split) king sizes to accommodate users who are not comfortable on standard-sized mattresses. Designed for ease of use in the home-care setting, this series includes surfaces that can accommodate two adults. When supplied for two adults, half of the surface is outfitted to deliver dynamic air therapy while the remainder provides only static air support. Special In-home choices include these PressureGuard® surfaces – the APM², and CFT®. Many of our products in the seating and support surfaces categories are recognized under the Medicare program and coded for reimbursement.

PressureGuard® Powered Treatment Surfaces

PressureGuard® APM²
The PressureGuard® APM² offers two distinct therapy modes – alternating pressure and lateral rotation – at the click of a switch. Real value is added with the PressureGuard® comfort and safety features including the proprietary Geo-Matt® anti-shearing top surface and two-part Safety Edge™ bolster system for fall prevention.


PressureGuard® Easy Air™
The PressureGuard® Easy Air™is independently documented to outperform every other low-air- loss-system. Clinicians choose low-air-loss therapy to address maceration, the weakening of the skin due to excess moisture. Two additional models expand the Easy Air series; the Easy Air LR adds lateral rotation making documented effective continuous lateral rotation therapy (CLRT) possible. Easy Air XL 1000 provides low-air-loss and alternating pressure therapies for the Bariatric Patient up to 1000 lbs. The Easy Air is not limited by the compromises low-air-loss users have come to accept. The outstanding features that distinguish the Easy air include its exclusive Air Diffusion Matrix, PressureGuard air/foam design and its Safety Edge™ which won't collapse like air-only mattresses can. In addition to low-air-loss, the efficient control unit also powers relieving alternating pressure therapy. Like many of our products, the Easy Air is recognized for reimbursement under Medicare Code.  

Non-Powered Surfaces

Geo-Mattress® HC
The Geo-Mattress® HC is specifically designed for the needs of the at-home patient to minimize the risk of skin breakdown. Easily folded and boxed for convenient shipping and storage, this therapeutic mattress, with 250 lbs. capacity, features a segmented top surface, 5" height, and fluid-proof cover. For non-powered home care of heavier patients, see our 6” Geo-Mattress® 350.

Seating

The design science in our comprehensive seat cushion series is focused on important Medicare-defined areas of wound treatment, positioning, wound prevention and comfort. For the bariatric patient we also offer three options for seating the patient who weighs up to 500 lbs.

Short-Wave Cushion
The convenient one-piece Short-Wave Cushion with unique segmented fins is specifically engineered to provide relief and address the effects of shearing and sitting-induced pressure.



Isch-Dish
The Isch-Dish for treatment and positioning of those with, or at high risk of, pressure ulcers at the ischium or coccyx is unlike products that merely equalize pressures across the seating surface. The Isch-Dish is documented as an important complement to wound treatment, and for long term prevention. The unique, open pocket design actually eliminates pressure at the ulcer site while ventilating heat and moisture.
