Lateral rotation, alternating pressure and powered flotation (“float”) modes

A Therapy-ready surface for every bed

Flexibility has been designed into this next generation PressureGuard series.  Both Custom Care Convertible models, easily convert to a powered surface with the simple addition of a control unit – an approach that can save significantly on the need for costly rentals.

PressureGuard® Custom Care® Convertible surfaces represent the next generation of time-tested PressureGuard air therapy surfaces. In peer-reviewed studies, non-powered and powered PressureGuard surfaces outperformed traditional powered surfaces in wound healing through Stage.

Custom Care Convertible mattresses feature the innovative Star Chamber system engineered with air support cylinders that are constantly filled with air – whether or not the surface is powered. Even in their non-powered state, the air cylinders’ head-to-foot orientation provides greater air displacement and better weight distribution than typical side-to-side cylinder configurations, and the cross-connected elasticized reservoirs absorb peaks to mimic powered flotation.

The Star Chamber design makes powered therapies more effective as well. Add-on powered control units instantly provide capability for alternating pressure and lateral rotation, offering greater treatment flexibility.

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.

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
