Optimized for Acute Care

Stands up to demanding hospital environments

Effective & Durable

Designed to deliver optimal performance that lasts

Developed to exceed the most rigorous requirements of the acute care environment

The Geo-Mattress ® UltraMax™ is recision-engineered to facilitate the sustained, restful sleep that can be a critical contributor to healing and recovery. Exclusive UHP 500™ torso section and 3-dimensional Zoning™ design ensure support and durability not achievable with traditional HR, latex, or viscoelastic foams. Geo-Matt® segmented surface and Shear Transfer Zone™ design deliver unsurpassed protection against shearing, pressure, and heat/moisture buildup.Firm perimeter provides edge-of-bed stability for fall prevention and safety during ingress, egress.

Robust Ultra High Performance Foam Seat Section

UHP 500 Foam – Specially made for UltraMax™

Repeated head of bed elevating and the patient’s concentrated weight combine to expose the seat section to the highest level of mechanical fatigue. UltraMax™ distinguishes itself by offering unmatched protection from “bottoming out”. A unique cellular structure gives UHP 500 a combination of resiliency, recovery and comfort not achievable with any of the foams commonly used in medical support surfaces.

Ultra High Performance Foam Seat Section

Geo-Matt Topper

  • 2″ deep topper reduces shear to underlying tissues
  • More than 800 individually-articulating cells
  • Redistributes pressure, reduces heat and skin moisture buildup
Non Shearing Surface

Two-way heel protection

Segmented breathable viscoelastic foam cradles the heel. Gentle Heel Slope® redistributes pressure to more pressure-tolerant lower legs.

Shear Transfer Zone™ cover design

Beyond its Geo-Matt® segmented top surface, the UltraMax™ provides an additional measure of shearing protection in the form of the silicone-coated, shear minimizing fabric bands located on the underside of its bi-directional stretch cover. This Shear Transfer Zone® design helps:

  • Prevent heels, sacrum, and scapula from “digging into” surface
  • “Glide” user back to original position following HOB elevation
  • Protect against damaging effects of micro shear, macro shear, and rotational (pivot-induced) shear
  • Provide patient stability by transferring shear to more shear-tolerant anchor points

3-Dimensional Zoning™ core design

UltraMax™ is built for extreme comfort with 3-Dimensional Zoning™ core design providing anatomically- calibrated levels of support and immersion throughout the surface.

LifeSpan® fabric

The cover’s enhanced features include the unique design of the anti-microbial bi-directional stretch cover made with Span’s superior LifeSpan® fabric.

LifeSpan® is extremely durable and cleanable and delivers outstanding resistance to chemical breakdown caused by bleach and other harsh disinfectants.



Recessed Deck Model

The recessed deck versions of selected Span surfaces, including the Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™, brings our advanced technology to recessed deck beds.

Our engineers have developed a version of the Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™ surface to accommodate the unique design requirements of recessed deck beds.  V-shaped edges enable the mattress to fit the recessed deck bedframe, while the compressible section accommodates multiple lengths and foot positions.

Design creates an inner bolster “cradle” effect for added safety when the patient sits on or moves toward the bed edge.  This protective feature helps direct the patient’s center of gravity safely back toward the center of the bed.   Two sturdy fabric handles improve relocation ergonomics.

  • Inner Bolster “Cradling” for Patient Safety
  • Compressible section adds length flexibility
