SPAN PressureGuard® Bariatric APM

PressureGuard® Bariatric APM provides advanced pressure management for enhanced comfort and safety in bariatric patients. Segmented top reduces sharp pressure drop-offs, while air system below handles the “heavy lifting,” alternating weight-bearing across the surface in user-selectable intervals. “Two up, one down” inflation pattern ensures maximum patient support throughout the cycle.

  • Simple operation
  • Gentle and effective pressure changes
  • Customizable firmness and time settings
  • PressureGuard design: stability, safety, anti-shearing

Alternating Pressure Air Therapy

Unlike other alternating pressure mattresses, the PressureGuard® Bariatric APM does not 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 smoothes 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. Six cylinders are programmed to inflate/deflate in a four-up-two-down pattern, ensures maximum patient support throughout the cycle. Other standard PressureGuard features include the exclusive Heel Slope taper, and two-part Safety-Edge bolster system for added stability when sitting or transferring.
