Herida Avon


The clinically proven Avon™ pressure reducing mattress has been developed using the very latest combustion modified ether foam technology (CME). This high quality product features a castellated foam surface, which sits on a sturdy “U shaped” foam base.

The pressure reducing, castellated zones are shaped smaller at the head and foot ends in order to maximise pressure re-distribution in the most vulnerable areas, whilst demonstrating larger castellation’s in the centre, so that the mainstream patient weight can be managed effectively.

The castellations not only provide superior pressure relief and postural support but the channels cuts ensure that the mattress provides a constant airflow around the patient. This airflow assists in controlling temperature and therefore endeavours to improve comfort and the patients ability to sleep.

The high density foam base and walls offers total stability during side transfer procedure, to alternative seating systems or that of assisting stand transfer.

Our UK manufactured, high frequency welded, vapour permeable and waterproof mattress covers will ensure all relevant compliance to even the strictest of infection control protocols. We also provide non-slip bases as standard on all of our welded covers.
