CuroCell SAM Switch

Flexible mattress overlay system with very high comfort

The CuroCell S.A.M.® Switch is used as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers up to category 2⁽¹⁾, and for pain therapy. It is a static air mattress overlay system that provides very good comfort and pressure⁽²⁾redistribution.

CuroCell S.A.M.® Switch has the added advantage that the pump can be used as a support pump only, making the mattress system both noiseless and vibration free.

The mattress is made from very soft and durable materials and comes with an easy to use, very quiet pump. Thanks to the extra soft inner cover (accessory), the already low pressure⁽³⁾ is further reduced.

Also available is the CuroCell S.A.M.® Switch CF16, which is a mattress replacement system equipped with an integrated foam core, and is placed directly onto the bed frame.

Care of Sweden’s mattresses are supplied with a four way stretch hygienic outer cover which conforms to relevant standards for hygiene⁽⁴⁾ quality and safety. All covers are manufactured from modern, recyclable materials and are vapour permeable⁽⁵⁾ which reduce the risk of skin maceration.
