Bariatric APM

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 weightbearing 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.
