SPAN PressureGuard® Easy Air® XL

Bariatric Microclimate Management and Alternating Pressure Mattress System.

  • Industry-best microclimate management performance
  • Uniquely equipped to meet the extreme skin integrity challenges of bariatric care
  • Safety Edge™ for added fall prevention and stability


Microclimate Management and Alternating Pressure for users 350 – 1000 lbs

The PressureGuard® Easy Air® XL is uniquely equipped to meet the extreme skin integrity challenges of bariatric care.  Sturdy PressureGuard “Safety Edge™” design provides added fall prevention and stability, especially during transfers. The system delivers time-tested, effective removal of excess moisture and heat within the microclimate from profuse sweating (hyperhidrosis) caused or exacerbated by thick layers of subcutaneous adipose tissue, obesity-related immobility and the inability to reposition effectively and routinely.

Proprietary Air Diffusion Matrix™

Three-dimensional liner helps ensure uninterrupted air flow in both cover and coverlet.

Outer Coverlet
• Highly vapor-permeable
• Superior air flow
• Wipes clean in place with standard hospital-grade cleaners
• Zippered, machine-launderable (air dry)

Inner Air Delivery Cover
• Dedicated air supply
• Directs constant stream of air
• Sweeps away moisture vapor before it can re-form as liquid
• Reduces maceration

Treatment Flexibility

Select one of two therapy modes:

Alternating Pressure: Gently changes loading across the surface (22-minute cycle).

“Float” Mode: Provides active, powered flotation therapy.

Treatment Flexibility

PressureGuard Design

The PressureGuard® Easy Air® is independently documented to outperform every leading low-air-loss system in this key performance area. Remarkably, it does so with none of the compromises low-air-loss prescribers have come to accept.

Integrated air system/engineered foam shell with “Safety Edge” bolster system delivers superior edge-of-bed safety, stability and comfort.
