The Altair 1000 mattress is an overlay system (used on top of a normal mattress) which provides alternating pneumatic pressure redistribution for patients deemed ‘at risk’ of developing pressure ulcers.

The 17 pneumatic cells harden and soften subtly in an alternating fashion to ensure optimal reperfusion and pressure redistribution. Please be sure to have a look at the pressure maps below – you have to see them to believe how good this mattress really is.
The Altair 1000 has the following important features:

· Safe working (patient) load of 170kg

· 4 hour transport mode

· Quick-release CPR valve

· Adjustable pressure with comfort control dial

· Audible and visual alarms

· Whisper quiet operation

· Meets CE/TUV safety standards

· PVC and latex free

· Cells are replaceable

· Rolls up for easy storage

· Cable ties keep electrical cords off the floor

· Slimline pump with hanging brackets

The cover also has several notable features:

· 2 way stretch fabric minimizes friction and shear

· Water and stain resistant

· Moisture vapour permeable/breathable

· High quality RF welding (no stitching)

· Flame resistant

· Non static generating

· Heavy duty zipper

· Zip cover flap to prevent fluid ingress

· No Velcro (to reduce infection control risk)

· Non-slip bottom to ensure mattress remains in position
