Castellated Viscoelastic Foam
Viscoelastic foam is an excellent material for providing comfort and pressure relief, helping to distribute a patient's weight across the mattress surface to reduce high pressure zones. This Softrest VE Pressure Relief Mattress uses this viscoelastic foam, and features ergonomic castellations within the foam to help reduce shear and enhance pressure relief. These castellated sections will move slightly with the patient, resulting in a reduction in the friction forces that can exacerbate pressure sore risk.
Water Resistant Cover
This Sidhil VE Pressure Relief Mattress is supplied complete with a multi-stretch, water-resistant and vapour-permeable cover. This cover will help to protect the foam of the mattress, while allowing air flow around the patient to reduce moisture that can lead to increased friction forces.
