SelectAir Low Air Loss mattress systems are a complete line that offers the most cost-effective alternative for skin protection and pressure sore prevention.
SelectAir Standard System includes:
Mattress with foot pillow
zippered "Nylon" cover and a one-inch foam pad.
SelectAir controls moisture with wicking action - Air gently blows underneath a vapor-permeable cover, wicking moisture away and keeping the skin at a healthy moisture level. The wicking method has several benefits over direct air flow alternatives. It is much less likely to over dry the skin (a clear contra-indication to moist wound healing). It also reduces the risk of airborne pathogens, and provides additional comfort for patients who tend to feel cold or simply find it unpleasant to have air blowing directly on them.
All SelectAir mattresses can be used on patients with any stage ischemic (pressure) ulcer, myocutaneous skin flaps, skin grafts and/or patients with temperature, moisture control, or pain management issues.
