Custom Care® Convertible

The Custom Care® Convertible series of pressure redistribution surfacesis designed to help clinicians provide excellent patient care on both flat deck and recessed deck frames, facility wide.

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. 

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.

LifeSpan® Fortified Healthcare Fabric

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® 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
