No side rails height extensions required
The latest Medical bed standard revised many aspects of how medical beds are designed. One important aspect highlighted in the standard
is that Side Rails should provide a minimum 22cm of protection above the mattress. Most beds are designed to take a 125mm or 150mm deep foam mattress. Most active mattresses are much deeper and reduce the protection offered by the side rails.
At only 125mm the Squirrel Diamond Wide is an ultra-low profile active system that ensures compliance with IEC 60601-2-52 without the need for side rail height extensions. Side rails should provide a minimum 22cm of protection above the mattress.
The best possible pressure area care
The Diamond Wide mattress 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 compact cells and integrated memory foam base-layer reduces shear and friction especially when the mattress is profiled.
The compact cells provide better support and improved profiling compared to deeper systems with wider cells.
Whisper quiet pump
Noise generated by mattress pumps is intrusive and disturbing to users, affecting interaction with carers; reducing enjoyment from activities such as reading or watching television. More importantly this continuous background noise can result in disrupted sleep patterns and significant health issues. The Squirrel “Whisper Quiet” pump reduces noise significantly and is effectively silent in use.
