Assist in the Prevention of Pressure Ulcers with Pressure Relief Surfaces

Global prevalence of pressure ulcers ranges from 6-18.5%.1 The Syntheto surface brings the comfort of foam and the therapeutic power of air to hospital bed mattresses. This powerful combination is designed to help protect patients’ skin integrity and treat pressure ulcers with specialised therapies when needed.

  • Help maintain low interface pressure with alternating pressure (AP) therapy mode
  • Help turn patients easily with patient mobilization mode and reminders*
  • Manage heat and moisture with improved MicroClimate Management

Support Skin Integrity with Greater Mobilisation

Mobilisation is an important part of pressure injury prevention.2 That’s why the Syntheto surface is designed to help you:

  • Increase turn engagement with the Turn Reminder feature*
  • Turn patients more easily with the Turn Assist feature*
  • Assist in reducing interface pressure in the sacral area with lateral rotation therapy*

Be Alerted to Signs of Patient Deterioration

As a second set of eyes, the contact-free, continuous monitoring system acts as a compliment to episodic and continuous vital signs monitors and alerts the caregiver of heart or respiratory rates that exceed the pre-determined thresholds.3

Support Clinical Efficiency and Cost Efficiency

Help reduce time-consuming transfers and costly rentals. The Syntheto surface’s integrated pump and X-ray sleeve help you perform more in-room procedures and therapies.

Stay Connected to Patient and Surface Status

A traditional hospital bed mattress can’t keep you connected — but the Syntheto surface can. Stay connected even when you’re not in your patients’ rooms with:

  • Timely alerts to bring clinicians to the bedside for faster interventions
  • Connectivity to send clinical data from the surface to the nurse’s station or EMR
