Who Can Use the Repose Babytherm Pressure Relief Mattress Overlay?
The Babytherm Pressure Relief Mattress is specially designed for use by infants in neonatal units, preventing pressure ulcer formation in the first stages of a 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 Overlay 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 Big Is the Babytherm Mattress Overlay?
When inflated, the Babytherm Pressure Relief Mattress Overlay measures 760 x 530mm (LxW). This makes it suitable for most standard cots, incubators, and warmers.
Is the Pump Included with the Mattress Overlay?
Yes, the pump is included with this Repose Babytherm Pressure Relief Mattress. This allows you to begin using the mattress as soon as it is required.
How Do I Inflate the Babytherm Mattress?
A pump is provided with your Repose Babytherm 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 Babytherm.
