Optimal Cura

Preventative mattress replacement with good pressure equalization

Optimal Cura is used as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers up to category 1⁽¹⁾. It is a mattress replacement, used in all types of healthcare environments.

Optimal Cura is a two layer mattress where the top layer is made from visco-elastic foam (so called memory foam) and the bottom layer is made from HR foam. The special design of the mattress and the materials gives very good pressure equalisation. The two layers allows the body to sink into the material, and thereby lower the pressure against the body.

Care of Sweden’s mattresses are supplied with a four way stretch hygienic outer cover which conforms to relevant standards for hygiene⁽²⁾, quality and safety. All covers are manufactured from modern, recyclable materials and are vapour permeable⁽³⁾, which reduce the risk of skin maceration.
