The Aquamarine 8900Plus Air Mattress is a highly specialized mattress replacement system that is a True Low Air Loss mattress that offers the ultimate in patient comfort and therapeutic pressure care. It is a partial alternating system that is designed for people that need to reduce excess moisture, increase capillary stimulation and achieve the highest levels of continuous comfort. It is therefore equally suitable for people at medium as well those at high and very high risk of pressure sores. The main benefit of true low air loss is that you are literally sleeping on a blanket of air, which will continuously release itself through a series of laser cut holes.
True low air loss has been proven to significantly reduce excess moisture and to protect against skin maceration. The 8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System includes eight cells within the sacrum area, each of which is laser pierced in order to allow a continuous flow of air.
Alternating or Static Option – Care and washing procedures are difficult and sometimes dangerous on alternating surfaces. Therefore to enable a firm, safe and workable surface, the PL-8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System includes an Alternating / Static button that can switch between alternating and static modes, static meaning, that all air cells are firm.
Full Replacement Mattress – Each of the durable Nylon/TPU or TPU cells within the mattress houses two separate air chambers. The top chamber may be set to alternating, static or low air loss, but the bottom chamber is kept inflated in case of short term power failure.
A/B Alternation – The popular A/B alternation system is proven to stimulate capillary action and to assist with the healing of pressure sores. A/B alternation means that when the pressure increases on the first, third and fifth cells (A cells) – it decreases on the second, fourth and sixth (B cells).
At the end of each cycle, which takes approximately ten minutes, the reverse occurs which means that the high and low pressures alternate throughout the mattress.
Medium, High & Very High Risk – All residents, irrespective of risk will find most basic air mattresses firm, and compared to a domestic bed – quite uncomfortable. Due to its micro low air loss and partial alternating features, the PL-8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System is one of the most comfortable and protective systems available. Its pressure range is an impressive 30 – 60 mmHg which means that it can be used by most medium, high and very high risk persons.
Tough Digital Pump – The 8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System comes complete with a tough digital pump that will cope with clients weighing up to 200kgs.
It is extremely easy to use and offers a visual mercurial display of its impressive pressure range of 30 – 60 mmHg. It offers a cycle time of 10 minutes and automatically compensates for a persons movement or repositioning.
Works with adjustable Beds – Most basic air mattresses will start to bottom out when the client has their back rest raised. The PL-8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System however will continue to alternate and offer low air loss protection even in a chair or seating position.
Gore Tex Style Fabric – This true low air loss mattress helps to reduce perspiration due to a continuous flow of air through its central TPU cells. These in turn pass through a special water proof – breathable fabric which is similar to the ever popular Gore Tex. The outer part of the mattress also uses a heavy duty Gore Tex style fabric and is designed to last for many years.
CPR Valve – The 8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System includes an easy to use CPR valve conveniently situated on the side panel. A simple lifting of the switch will deflate the mattress.
Transport Locking Device – The 8900PLUS low air loss Multi-tubes Pressure Relieving System comes with an easy to use transport locking device which is located at the end of the inflation tubes.
