Preventative mattress

Optimal Cura

Preventative mattress replacement with good pressure distribution

Optimal Cura is used as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers up to and including category 2(1). It is a mattress replacement, used in all types of healthcare environments.

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

Optimal Cura is manufactured with modern and sustainable materials, meeting healthcare requirements for hygiene, quality and safety(3)(4).

Covers for comfort and hygiene

The support surface is supplied with a liquidproof hygiene cover for easy cleaning.

The liquidproof hygiene cover is manufactured in a four-way stretch(5)(3) fabric to reduce the risk of shear forces, and is vapour-permeable(2) to lower the risk of skin maceration. The hygiene cover also features a liquidproof zipper.
