Shear induced tissue trauma

Under the downward pressure of the user’s weight, tissue is compressed in the vertical plane beneath the bony prominences, trapping the skin.  As the body moves, mechanical shearing forces are generated along the horizontal plan, causing damage deep within the tissue

Vulnerable bony prominences

Without effective shear-reducing intervention, the skin and deep tissues are vulnerable to shear induced trauma at the scapula, sacrum and heels.  This is intensified when the head of bed is elevated, pushing the user toward the foot of the bed

Rotational Shear

Even, rotational shear, caused when the user is pivoted from the lying to sitting position or vice versa is minimized by Shear Transfer Zones® technology

PressureGuard® Custom Care® Convertible Recessed Deck Model

The recessed deck versions of selected Span surfaces, including the Custom Care Convertible, brings our advanced technology to recessed deck beds.Our engineers have developed a version of the Custom Care Convertible 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.

Patented 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.  Visit the recessed deck surfaces page
