Alerta Sensaflex 250 High Risk Pressure Relief Memory Foam Cushion
For patients who spend long stretches of time seated in chairs and wheelchairs, pressure sores may develop if the appropriate seating isn't used, but high specification memory foam cushions can be costly. The Alerta Sensaflex 250 High Risk Pressure Relief Memory Foam Cushion is designed to provide excellent pressure distribution at a reduced cost, and is suitable for wheelchair users at a high risk of pressure sore development.

Who Can Use the Alerta Sensaflex 250 Pressure Relief Cushion?
This memory foam cushion is an ideal option for any medical facility operating on a budget, and is suitable for care homes, nursing homes, hospitals and residential care environments. The Sensaflex 250 will assist with effective protection from pressure sores for high risk patients, helping to provide adequate care while avoiding exorbitant costs.
Why Choose Memory Foam?
Memory foam is a uniquely effective material for pressure reduction, as it will mould to the shape of the patient to provide bespoke contours. This contouring ensures that a maximum surface area is supported, which will reduce the pressure on each section of the patient's skin through enhanced pressure redistribution.
Can I Use This Cushion with a Wheelchair?
Yes, this cushion is a suitable option for wheelchair users up to a high risk of pressure sore development. It measures 43 x 43 x 10cm, which will fit the majority of common wheelchair sizes.
Which Patients Is This Cushion Suitable For?
This pressure relief cushion is designed for patients at a high risk of pressure sore development. For patients at medium risk of pressure sore development, we recommend the Alerta Sensaflex 200 Foam Pressure Relief Cushion. For very high risk patients, we recommend the Matrx Flo-tech Contour Visco Cushion, which is available in Soft, Medium, Firm and Very Firm densities.
Is This Product Tested for Fire Safety?
Yes, all components of Alerta's pressure relief products are tested to comply with BS7177: Crib 5 fire safety regulations. This means that all foam and covers for Alerta mattresses and cushions are tested to the most stringent fire safety guidelines, ensuring you stay fully compliant and up to date with regulations.
Is This Cushion Supplied with a Cover?
To improve durability and quality of care, this cushion is fitted with a multi-stretch and waterproof cover. This vapour-permeable PU cover is antimicrobial, to reduce bacteria and odour, and fully machine washable so that you can keep your patient's environment sanitary at all times. To make it as easy as possible to identify fluid ingress, the cushion cover is designed with a white underside.
Can the Cover Be Washed?
Yes, the cover can be machine washed at 65°C for no less than 10 minutes, or at 95°C for no less than 3 minutes. The cover can then be tumble dried on low heat (not exceeding 60°C). The foam is suitable to be autoclaved at 134°C.
