Align 360 Mattressby Permobil SKU: A3680
The “Align 360 Mattress with SRT by 5 Minds Mobility” incorporates patent pending “Shear Reduction Technology (SRT)”. It is an innovative way for two component parts of the mattress to move on each other in order to absorb shear WITHIN the surface, at the same time addressing the need for pressure re-distribution with immersion. This new approach to shear in 360° of movement incorporates two multi-zone layers of alternative foam which are separated by a low friction material.
The mattress itself is designed to absorb forces that damage skin, thereby reducing the risk for skin breakdown. A third party clinical trial was completed by Durham College Department of Nursing and Department of Engineering to validate the SHEAR REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY. The clinical trial provides non-biased support for its efficacy and use in populations where both shear and pressure forces can damage vulnerable skin. 5 Minds Mobility received the Colleges of Ontario Network for Industry Innovations award in 2011.
