High risk medical mattress
The Icare M4 mattress is a high risk profiling static mattress that is great for transfers and reduces roll out.
Featuring the unique ActiveGel temperature responding material.
The mattress is designed with a section of v-cut XP Support Foam which creates additional air movement for enhanced pressure relieving properties.
Pair with an Icare bed or suitable on any base platform.
- 150mm Depth
- SWL Minimum 30kg
- SWL Maximum 215kg
ActiveGEL material is a high grade of elastic type foam infused with cooling gel partials. This material is responsive to temperature and will become softer as it becomes warmer. So around a pressure point it will always soften and allow the blood to circulate freely. The Gel infusion helps to regulate overall temperature.
The ActiveGEL is module cut to allow each square to move to body contour. This module cutting also allows for horizontal anti shear movement.
Base & Rail Support Foam
XP Support base layer features deep cut springs allowing much more airflow and extension of lateral contouring. XP Support foam is an open cell material that breaths to allow air circulation but is high density to prevent bottoming out or side roll out. This material will easily contour to any profiling bed.
Zerotec fabric is a medical barrier fabric that has high elasticity in every direction which reduces shear on pressure redistribution surfaces. It is waterproof and wipeable but has microporous breathable properties. This is used for the cover of the M4 mattress. This cover has welded seams and waterfall flaps for fluid control.
Icare mattresses don’t have any springs which makes them suitable for any profiling or static mattress platforms. We have found springs cause problems over time particularly on medical beds. And of course springs don’t have a good pressure care track record.
