Air-Matt Transfer Mattresses are designed to assist with patient lateral transfers and repositioning within a hospital, ASC, imaging center, long-term care facilities or at home. They come as either a Reusable or a Single Patient Use (SPU) Disposable Transfer Mattress.
An Air-Matt Transfer Mattress moves a patient on a soft nylon air mattress inflated with low pressure, high volume air. Holes in the underside allow air to escape. The escaping air acts as a lubricant, reducing friction, making movement of the mattress and the patient effortless.
Less physical effort and strain reduces caregiver injuries, predominantly the back injuries associated with lateral transfers and patient repositioning. Fewer injuries equate to fewer workers’ compensation claims, less time lost to injuries, less light-duty assignments and increased caregiver job satisfaction. Additionally, the Air-Matt Transfer Mattress reduces patient physical movement that often leads to pain and discomfort. It supports the patient safely and results in a smooth, secure transfer which in turn enhances patient satisfaction.
Air-Matt Transfer Mattresses are compatible with all major manufacturers’ air supply systems, including Hovermatt, Arjo-Huntleigh, Stryker, EZ Way, Air Movement Technologies Inc. and Airpal. Other air supplies may also be compatible.
