Prevention for high risk patients


Heel Slope™ designed to further reduce heel pressure

In non-powered mode, use the Span-Care convertible for pressure injury prevention in at-risk patients, early intervention of existing pressure injuries, or when a step-down surface is called for. Its self-adjusting system of synchronized air cylinders and pressure relief valves provide the correct level of immersion and envelopment for any user.

Add the simple, digital control unit when powered treatment modalities are necessary. Adjustable comfort settings, audible low pressure alarm and a timed auto-firm mode ensure maximum usability.

In either mode, the Span-Care convertible delivers an unmatched combination of extreme patient comfort, crucial safety and stability, proven pressure management and maintenance-free reliability.


The cover’s enhanced features include the unique design of the anti-microbial bi-directional stretch cover made with Span’s superior LifeSpan® fabric.

LifeSpan® is extremely durable and cleanable and delivers outstanding resistance to chemical breakdown caused by bleach and other harsh disinfectants with its polycarbonate-fortified coating.

PressureGuard® Span-Care® Convertible Recessed Deck Model

The recessed deck versions of selected Span surfaces, including the Span-Care Convertible, brings our advanced technology to recessed deck beds.

Our engineers have developed a version of the Span-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.
