EqualizeAire™ mattresses are recommended for prevention and treatment of pressure injuries for high-risk patients. Easy to use and easy to maintain, they can be used as a self-adjusting non-powered mattress or as an alternating pressure mattress.
Therapeutic foam mattresses
TheraTech foam mattresses feature independent load bearing cells that enable the mattress to conform to the contours of the body. These mattresses reduce pressure but some also reduce friction and shear.
OR table pads
OR table and stretcher pads help ensure optimal pressure redistribution before, during and after surgery. Our pads have three therapeutic layers that work together to help redistribute pressure.
