FOAM MATTRESS TECHNOLOGY
Effective Skin Management
Begins with Prevention.
Pressure Ulcer Prevention at an Affordable Price
Because not every patient needs a true pressure-relieving surface,
in many cases a superior foam mattress can deliver the pressure
redistribution and comfort that is required. Offering an advanced
level of pressure ulcer prevention, KCI’s TheraRest™ Skin Management
Series mattress can help facilities manage the risks of skin breakdown
while helping to control costs as well. The TheraRest SMS™ is available
in two models:
TheraRest SMS Perimeter Plus™ Mattress
With innovative features like a firm foam perimeter, heel slope,
compression channels, enhanced stability and anti-microbial
components, KCI’s TheraRest SMS Perimeter Plus™ Mattress is a
cost-effective alternative to help deliver effective pressure
redistribution and help prevent skin breakdown.
TheraRest SMS Perimeter Plus™ VE Mattress
The TheraRest SMS Perimeter Plus™ VE Mattress is enhanced with
NASA-inspired Visco Elastic (VE) Memory Foam, replacing the
standard foam topper. VE foam molds to the patient’s body shape,
providing a “custom-like fit” each time the patient changes
position, helping improve comfort and pressure distribution.
