Unique Reactive Surface Features for Acute Care Environment
Span-America’s new Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™
with design advantages – inside and out
Innovative design sets UltraMax™ apart from typical reactive surfaces and enables it to exceed even the most rigorous requirements of the acute health care setting.
Also see the Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™ for Stretchers, a premium pressure redistribution support surface with many UltraMax features.
On the inside:
3-Dimensional Zoning™ core design
UltraMax is built for extreme comfort with 3-Dimensional Zoning™ core design providing anatomically- calibrated levels of support and immersion throughout the surface.
Robust Ultra High Performance Foam Seat Section
UHP 500 Foam – Specially made for UltraMax™
Repeated head of bed elevating and the patient’s concentrated weight combine to expose the seat section to the highest level of mechanical fatigue. UltraMax™ distinguishes itself by offering unmatched protection from “bottoming out”. A unique cellular structure gives UHP 500 a combination of resiliency, recovery and comfort not achievable with any of the foams commonly used in medical support surfaces.
And on the outside:
The UltraMax™ bi-directional stretch cover with Shear Transfer Zones™
design Beyond its Geo-Matt® segmented top surface, the UltraMax™ provides an additional measure of shearing protection in the form of the silicone-coated, shear minimizing fabric bands located on the underside of its bi-directional stretch cover.
This Shear Transfer Zone design helps:
- Prevent heels, sacrum, and scapula from “digging into” surface
- “Glide” user back to original position following HOB elevation
- Protect against damaging effects of micro shear, macro shear, and rotational (pivot-induced) shear
- Provide patient stability by transferring shear to more shear-tolerant anchor points
