Designed to prevent and/or treat pressure ulcers.
One of the most important determinants of developing a pressure ulcer is the ability to move or change positions. Lack of movement can result in loss of blood flow to the muscles and skin. Patients immobilized and unable to move can suffer serious destruction of the skin and soft body tissue in as little as one hour. This often results in the formation of a pressure ulcer. A pressure ulcer is defined as any lesion caused by unrelieved pressure resulting in underlying tissue damage. Most pressure ulcers are treatable and even preventable. Therapeutic Support Surfaces are a proven way to help prevent and treat pressure ulcers.

Pressure: Results in compression of soft tissue between a bony prominence and an external surface, such as a bed. When external pressure exceeds capillary blood pressure, the blood supply from the blood vessels to the muscle and skin tissue is impeded, resulting in
tissue breakdown.

Moisture: Over-hydrates skin, resulting in maceration, which lowers its resistance to mechanical stresses such as pressure or friction.

Shear: Occurs when adjacent surfaces slide across one another,typically when a patient slides down in bed or chair. The skin remains stationary against the bed linens while the underlying tissue shifts. This causes capillaries to stretch and tear, resulting in reduced blood flow.

Friction: Caused when the skin is pulled across a coarse surface such as bed linens, washcloths, or incontinence pads. When friction is applied to the skin, the outer protective layer is rubbed away. The soft moist layers of skin are exposed which allow bacteria to enter.

The microAIR 3500S is a portable low air loss therapy mattress replacement system that provides the therapeutic benefit of pressure relief and skin moisture management. The microAIR 3500S also provides the benefits of true low air loss available for pressure ulcer therapy.
