The Alerta Sensaflex Underlay 2 inch Foam Mattress is a foam mattress underlay for use underneath an air mattress system in the event of power failure or the use of CPR. The underlay provides effective comfort, care and pressure redistribution for users in hospital, nursing and care home environments.
To launder the cover in a washing machine, set the main wash to 65oC for no less than 10 minutes or 95oC for no less than 3 minutes. The cover can be tumble dried on low heat and the temperature must not exceed 60oC. The foam can be autoclaved at 134oC.
To improve durability and quality of care, this Sensaflex foam underlay mattress is fitted with a multi-stretch and waterproof cover. This vapour permeable PU cover is antimicrobial, to reduce bacteria and odour, and fully machine-washable so that you can keep your patient’s environment sanitary at all times.
Mattress underlays are a crucial part of any pressure relief system that involves a mattress overlay – especially in the case of air mattress overlays. When using a mattress overlay like the Alerta Emerald Overlay Alternating Mattress System, a mattress underlay like the Alerta Sensaflex can prevent the patient ‘bottoming out’ in the event of a power failure, and ensure a level of pressure relief can still be provided in the event of deflation.
