Microclimate Management with Alternating Pressure Therapy

Protocol’s proprietary air delivery cover design supplies a gentle flow of air directly to the underside of its highly vapor permeable coverlet, carrying away excess moisture vapor to help protect vulnerable skin. Thanks to its innovative design, the Protocol’s efficient control unit generates substantially less heat and noise than traditional high-output low air loss blowers while consuming less power.

Caregivers can select subtle alternating pressure or powered flotation treatment modes. Auto firm mode provides additional surface stability for ADLs, transfers, and feeding when desired, then automatically resumes the selected treatment mode after 20 minutes. Unlike typical roll-up surfaces, Protocol can maintain its inflation in a power outage or during transport. System includes mattress, control unit and machine washable coverlet.
