Who Can Use the Repose Pressure Relief Mattress?
The Babynest Pressure Relief Mattress is specially designed for use by preterm infants, preventing pressure ulcer formation in the first stages of a premature baby's life. There is no lower weight limit, but it is not suitable for individuals weighing over 3kg, infants with unstable spinal fractures, or infants whose body shape cannot be fully supported by the mattress.
How Does the Repose Mattress Relieve Pressure?
Low air technology in the mattress distributes weight and pressure evenly without losing shape. All Repose products feature Smart Valve Technology, which automatically ensures the mattress inflates to the optimal pressure. This pressure has been demonstrated over time to be the optimal balance between comfort and efficacy for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.
How Does the Repose Babynest Mattress Promote Positive Development?
In addition to reducing the risk of pressure sore development, the Babynest Pressure Relief Mattress also helps to create a safe environment for the infant. It combines a base mattress with an air-filled border to help the child feel secure, which in turn may promote a positive response during neonatal growth and development. The Babynest also helps to muffle background noise, which can help to ease a distressed baby.
How Big Is the Babynest Mattress?
When inflated, the Babynest Pressure Relief Mattress measures 580 x 330 x 100mm (LxWxH). The infant should fit comfortably inside the Repose Babynest for safe and secure use.
Is the Pump Included with the Mattress?
Yes, the pump is included with this Repose Babynest Pressure Relief Mattress. This allows you to begin using the mattress as soon as it is required.
How Do I Inflate the Babynest Mattress?
A pump is provided with your Repose Babynest Mattresses, and pushes easily onto the inflation valve. Inflate the device until air is heard escaping from the pump valve, and then cover the valve on the device using the solid end of the figure-of-eight valve cap. Please see the PDF file below for a guide to inflating your Repose Babynest.
