Squirrel Mattresses

Dynamic hybrid mattress replacement systems, providing high levels of care and comfort with an ultra-low profile. 

The best possible pressure area care

The Diamond at only 12.5cm deep shows comparable pressure mapping to traditional deeper mattresses. In addition it provides greater comfort, an improved surface for therapy and greater independent user mobility.

The Diamond “Ventilated Stacked Cell Technology” with smaller cells and integrated memory foam base-layer reduces shear and friction especially when the mattress is profiled.

The narrow cells provide better support and improved profiling compared to deeper systems with wider cells.
