Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™

Unique Reactive Surface Features for Acute Care Environment

Span-America’s new Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™
with design advantages – inside and out

Innovative design sets UltraMax™ apart from typical reactive surfaces and enables it to exceed even the most rigorous requirements of the acute health care setting.

Also see the Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™ for Stretchers, a premium pressure redistribution support surface with many UltraMax™ features.

On the inside:
3-Dimensional Zoning™ core design


UltraMax™ is built for extreme comfort with 3-Dimensional Zoning™ core design providing anatomically- calibrated levels of support and immersion throughout the surface.

Robust Ultra High Performance Foam Seat Section

UHP 500 Foam – Specially made for UltraMax™


Repeated head of bed elevating and the patient’s concentrated weight combine to expose the seat section to the highest level of mechanical fatigue. UltraMax™ distinguishes itself by offering unmatched protection from "bottoming out". A unique cellular structure gives UHP 500 a combination of resiliency, recovery and comfort not achievable with any of the foams commonly used in medical support surfaces.

And on the outside:
The UltraMax™ bi-directional stretch cover with Shear Transfer Zones®


Beyond its Geo-Matt® segmented top surface, the UltraMax™ provides an additional measure of shearing protection in the form of the silicone-coated, shear minimizing fabric bands located on the underside of its bi-directional stretch cover.

This Shear Transfer Zone® design helps:

  • Prevent heels, sacrum, and scapula from "digging into" surface
  • "Glide" user back to original position following HOB elevation
  • Protect against damaging effects of micro shear, macro shear, and rotational (pivot-induced) shear
  • Provide patient stability by transferring shear to more shear-tolerant anchor points

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.


Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™ Recessed Deck Model

The recessed deck versions of selected Span surfaces, including the Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™, brings our advanced technology to recessed deck beds.   

Our engineers have developed a version of the Geo-Mattress® UltraMax™ 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
