New smart technology for the prevention of pressure ulcers. The system detects when the patient has entered the bed. This automatically initiates the optimisation process, thereby saving the time normally required for nurses to set the mattress parameters. The mattress settings are automatically optimised for each patient based on the patient’s weight, height, and even the patient’s position on the mattress.
- The mattress is equipped with a whole range of sophisticated functions which enhance the therapeutic and preventive effect of the optimised pressure.
- OptiCare is fully compatible with ICU beds – Multicare and Eleganza 5.
OptiCare mattress is compatible with Multicare and Eleganza 5 beds. The controls for both the mattress and bed are integrated into a single control panel built into the bed. The customisable user interface provides the clinical staff with the option to modify the controls on the interface and allows control of only the required features.
Microclimate management (MCM)
In the context of pressure ulcers, microclimate usually refers to skin temperature and moisture conditions at the skin-support surface interface. OptiCare helps maintain the natural thermoregulation by circulating air through the mattress surface.
- Helps control the heat and humidity of the patient’s skin, which is an important part of maintaining tissue viability.
Quick and effective CPR
The mattress can be deflated by simply pressing the electronic CPR button on the control panel integrated into the bed. Alternatively, it can be manually deflated through a mechanism directly on the mattress. Following deflation, the patient lies on a firm mattress platform, which facilitates effective resuscitation techniques.
- After sixty minutes of deflation, the mattress will automatically return to the optimal pressure stribution mode or to the maximum inflation mode, thereby limiting any factors that may have an adverse mpact on the prevention or treatment of pressure ulcers.
The heel section has a 7-degree slope and is lined with a softer foam that gives the patient above-standard comfort. This significantly reduces the risk of heel pressure ulcers.
Automatic foot extension
The heel section of the mattress can be automatically adjusted when the bed frame is extended.
The upper section of the cover consists of highly moisture and vapour permeable (MVP) two-way stretch material.
A full 360-degree zip to allow easy removal for cleaning or replacement.
The zip is covered by a waterproof flap to protect the mattress against fluid ingress.
This mode reduces speed and noise in order to minimise the disturbance of the patient during sleep. The clinical efficacy of the mattress is maintained even when switching to sleep mode.
Immersion and envelopment
The even distribution across the entire body area eliminates excessive pressure at the risk points thanks to above-standard immersion and envelopment.
- IMMERSION: the depth of the patient’s level in relation to the mattress surface.
- ENVELOPMENT: the degree to which the patient is surrounded by the mattress.
Optimisation Detection System: Six detectors within the mattress sense the patient’s level of immersion and facilitate the automatic adjustment of the pressure throughout the mattress to adjust to each patient’s weight, height, and position. The pressure on the patient’s body is low in all places and optimally distributed.
