Constant low pressure mattress

CuroCell®AREA Zone 

 

Self-adjusting mattress replacement system

CuroCell® AREA Zone is used as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers up to and including category 3(1). The mattress combines the comfort of the foam with the pressure-relieving properties of the air. The mattress contains nine air cells divided into zones, adapting to the individual and providing a individualised setting. The mattress is self-adjusting, and no electric pump is required.

CuroCell® AREA Zone can be used in all types of care environments and is easy to handle and maintain. The mattress has good properties in terms of pressure, shear, and moisture impact(2)(3), three crucial areas in the prevention and/or treatment of pressure ulcers.

The mattress is constructed with multiple layers of high-resilience cold foam. The built-in heel function also reduces pressure on the heels. The mattress maintains a good hygienic standard(4)(5) and is manufactured with welded seams.
