Alternating Pressure Air Therapy 

Unlike other alternating pressure mattresses, the PressureGuard® APM won’t create extreme pressure gradients between inflated and deflated cylinders. On top, the Geo-Matt® anti-shearing surface forms a comfortable, therapeutic interface between the air system and the user. It absorbs and smooths sharp pressure drop-offs that other surfaces can’t, while the air system does the “heavy lifting” below, alternating weight-bearing across the surface in ten-minute cycles. Other standard PressureGuard® features include the exclusive Heel Slope™ taper, and two-part Safety-Edge bolster system for added stability when sitting or transferring.
