Mediair Turn - Sense

The Mediair Turn - Sense technology can be used as a tool to empower and encourage healthcare professionals and patients to reach their mobility goals.


IMMOBILITY

Immobility is the prime risk factor of Pressure Ulcer incidence. International Best Practice advocates frequent repositioning of the patient as a preventative and treatment intervention.(1)

Everybody believes in it but very few achieve it as repositioning schedules are a challenge in all settings.

MAT-S not only provides the solution by combining alternating pressure relief and rotational therapy but can also provide hard data to quantify patient self movements and assisted movement by the support surface.


HOW DO WE DO THIS?


ALTERNATING AIR THERAPY

It is well established that there is a pressure time threshold above which ulceration is likely.(2) The ideal situation is to have low interface pressures for short periods of time to prevent pressure ulcers.

The dual layer of 28 cells results in a greater surface contact area and a reduction in interface pressure.

The MAT-S relieves pressure more often than competitor’s products with the frequent cycle time of 5 minute to 20 minute intervals.




ROTATIONAL THERAPY

It is well documented that the turning/tilting of a patient into different positions, (30° either side at different intervals), redistributes pressure from bony prominences thereby reducing the incidences of pressure ulcers.

The 30° tilt makes a statistically significant difference to pressure ulcer development compared with standard care.(3)

MAT-S has been specifically designed to achieve the 30° tilt which does substantially enhance patient outcomes.(4)



MAT-S

MAT-S technology monitors when repositioning is necessary and provides repositioning/turning if required. Unnecessary patient disturbance by care givers can be eliminated when patients self movement is detected.This allows care givers to improve the sleep quality of the patient as well as preventing skin damage.

MAT-S technology provides quantitative evidence of patients repositioning/turning for clinical audits in measuring compliance with National and Local Pressure Ulcer Prevention & Management Policies.

Data from the MAT-S technology can help with determining repositioning needs of individual patients .This in turn can free up nursing staff for other nursing care needs of patients.

FEATURES


Auto Adjust Sensor

Automatically adjusts the pressure to maintain low pressure when the patient is profiled, eliminating the need for hand checks. It automatically stops rotations as the patient is profiled.


Gatching

It also prevents the effect of gatching which occurs in deep cells by having dual layer cell construction.


Cycle Type

1 in 2. This ensures that 50% of the body is being offloaded during the cycle time.


Maximum Inflate

Inflates the mattress to its maximum firmness.


Transport Facility

Transport facility allowing unpowered support of the patient for up to 48 hours.


CPR

Allows rapid deflation.


Cover

PU Coated stretch nylon. Fluid proof and vapour permeable.


Customisation

Available in various dimensions.
