The Sizewise Bariatric Sapphire (1100EC) is a complete mattress replacement system that sets a new standard for pressure redistribution surfaces in bariatric rehabilitation. The Sizewise Bariatric Sapphire features high strength air cushions, which are vented to provide clinically effective low air loss therapy. This therapy helps keep the patient dry and comfortable whether in alternation or static modes of operation. The air cells rest on a 5cm covered foam safety pad for added patient protection during power outage or patient transfer. The foam base is covered with a waterproof material to eliminate cross contamination of bodily fluids.
The Bariatric Sapphire comes with a quilted top cover, which is vapour permeable, low friction, anti-shear and completely machine washable. The system includes an exceptionally quiet control unit. The unit is user-friendly and attaches easily to the footboard of most standard medical bed frames. Digital technology allows the alternation cycle time, the pressure settings and the mode of operation to be changed with the touch of a button. Additional features of the Sizewise Bariatric Sapphire include: “Static” for stationary low air loss therapy; “Fowler” to boost seat inflation when the head is elevated; “Auto Firm” for rapid inflation and easy patient transfer; “Lockout” to maintain caregiver settings without accidental interruptions;“Low Pressure” and “Power Failure” audible / visual alarms and “Self-Diagnostic Check” to quickly assess all switches and sensors for proper calibration and operation.
