Optimal 5zon®

Optimal 5zon® is developed to maintain the quality of life for individuals who spend extended periods in a care bed while also contributing to reducing the risk of pressure ulcer/injuries. Through our patented(3) support function DuoCore® and a two-part, lined foam core, the support surface aims to reduce the impact of shear forces and maintain comfort and stability in a sitting position.

Optimal 5zon® consists of high-density foam to withstand long-lasting and reccuring use throughout its lifespan. The high-density foam also increases its ability to support the individual without the risk of bottoming out. The two layered lined foam helps reduce discomfort and the occurrence of pressure ulcers/injuries due to shear.

The story

With our vision to eliminate pressure ulcer/injuries, we adopt a comprehensive approach to patient safety and well-being, with a focus on creating a sustainable society and ensuring safe care for each individual.

To create a more holistic approach to pressure ulcer prevention, we believe it’s crucial to integrate “ADL – Activities of Daily Living” as a central component when developing our solutions.

This is the reason why we have developed Optimal 5zon®, an innovative solution that, with our patented support function DuoCore(2) and a two-part, lined foam core, is designed to contribute to a good quality of life for each individual.

Main benefits

The foam quality contributes to improved patient safety

Pressure ulcers/injuries cause significant suffering and can be prevented. For a support surface to have preventive effect, there needs to be a balance between the individual being enveloped by the material and pressure being evenly distributed across the surface, while the foam provides sufficient support to prevent bottoming out. The quality of the foam is therefore crucial to ensuring patient safety.

Density affects how well the support surface supports the individual – the higher the density, the more support the foam provides. Firmness relates to how stable the support surface feels and affects the sensation of lying on the support surface. A balance between density and firmness is necessary for comfort and pressure ulcer prevention properties.

Optimal 5zon® consists of high-density foam to provide adequat support and distribute pressure across the entire body.

Longer sustainability and lower costs over time

In healthcare, it’s crucial that support surfaces can withstand prolonged use and repeated pressure. Density affects both how well the support surface supports the individual and it’s resistance to fatigue and stresses.

Optimal 5zon® consists of high-density foam to withstand long-lasting and reccuring use throughout its lifespan.

Higher density increases resislience and extends the lifepan of the foam. This results in a durable support surface that needs to be replaced less frequently, leading to lower costs over time.

Maintain quality of life and reduce the risk of shear forces

Optimal 5zon® is developed to maintain the quality of life for individuals who spend extended periods in a care bed while also contributing to reducing the risk of pressure ulcer/injuries. Through our patented(3) support function DuoCore® and a two-part, lined foam core, the support surface aims to reduce the impact of shear forces and maintain comfort and stability in a sitting position.

When moving between positions, shear forces occur, which not only pose a risk for pressure ulcers/injuries but can also become painful and uncomfortable over time. With a two-part, lined foam core, the foam layers shift relative to
each other, and the shear force occurs between the foam layers instead of between the skin and the surface.

When moving to a sitting position, individuals tend to slide forward towards the foot end, which can be uncomfortable and negatively affect posture. With DuoCore®, the support surface provides support under the hamstrings and pelvis, helping to maintain a upright posture.

The quality of the foam affects patient safety

Using high-quality foam is critical to ensure patient safety and a long lifespan of the support surface. Optimal 5zon® consists of high-density foam (kg/m3), which increases its ability to support the individual without the risk of bottoming out, while also providing high resistance to fatigue and conditions for a long lifespan.

Castellated overlay mattress for even pressure distribution

The castellated overlay mattress is tailored to the amount of pressure required for different parts of the body to be enveloped by the support surface. For lighter body parts, such as the heels, the support surface has smaller-sized cubes to promote good and even pressure distribution across the body.

DuoCore® promotes an upright sitting position

Our patented support function DuoCore®, provides support to the hamstring and pelvis to promote an upright position and ADL (activities of daily living). DuoCore® contributes to improved comfort and facilitates fundamental activities such as mealtime activity and breathing work.

Two-part, lined foam core for less shear impact

The two layered lined foam helps reduce discomfort and the occurrence of pressure ulcers/injuries due to shear. By allowing the foam layers to shift relative to each other during position changes, the absorption of shear forces is transferred from the individual’s skin to the support surface.
