Among specialty support surfaces PressureGuard® stands apart. Packed with technical innovations, every PressureGuard model combines the effectiveness of an air flotation system with the unmatched stability and safety of a multi-component engineered foam shell.

PressureGuard Powered

Easy Air Series

The PressureGuard Easy Air® is independently documented to outperform every leading low-air-loss system in this key performance area. Remarkably, it does so with none of the compromises low-air-loss prescribers have come to accept. The Easy Air LR adds lateral rotation. The Easy Air XL serves the bariatric patient.



The PressureGuard® Protocol™ provides an unmatched combination of microclimate management, pressure redistribution, ease of use and patient/caregiver safety. Its efficient design generates substantially less heat and noise than traditional “roll-up” low air loss surfaces while consuming less power.


Safety Supreme

The PressureGuard® APM² Safety Supreme combines all the features of the top-selling PressureGuard® APM², plus the added safety benefits of raised perimeter edges to help prompt the user away from the edge of the bed.



The PressureGuard® APM² enables you to change instantly and easily from alternating pressure to basic lateral rotation with a single, recessed toggle switch. The silent, reliable, maintenance-free control unit allows simple adjustment for user comfort.


Bariatric APM

The PressureGuard® Bariatric APM offers alternating pressure therapy with 8 comfort settings for users up to 750 lbs. The powerful digital control unit supplies up to four times the air output of conventional units.


Turn Select

The PressureGuard Turn Select® gently rotates the user laterally up to 30 degrees, with dwell times as short as 1 minute and as long as 2 hours.  Features handheld pendant and ultra-compact built-in microprocessor.


Unlike other alternating pressure mattresses, the PressureGuard APM won't create extreme pressure gradients between inflated and deflated cylinders.


PressureGuard Convertible


Custom Care Convertible

The PressureGuard® Custom Care® Convertible series is Span-America’s better way to provide non-powered therapy, which with the simple addition of a control unit, provides powered alternating pressure and lateral rotation therapies.


Custom Care Convertible LAL

The PressureGuard® Custom Care® Convertible LAL adds industry-leading low-air-loss microclimate management to the revolutionary Star Chamber system which provides greater air displacement and better weight distribution.

PressureGuard Non-Powered  


Custom Care

The new PressureGuard® Custom Care® surface is an innovative non-powered blend of Metered Immersion™ with interconnected chambers providing reactive pressure redistribution and Shear Transfer Zones™ shear transference.


The PressureGuard CFT® is one of our surfaces that offer powerful results without a powered control unit.  Constant Force Technology® automatically adjusts a network of interconnected air cylinders and elasticized reservoirs.
