A hybrid mattress replacement system with self-adjusting technology
The CuroCell AREA Zone is a flexible, self-adjusting, non-powered mattress system. It combines air and foam for effective pressure redistribution and increased comfort and can be used in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers up to and including category 3. The CuroCell AREA Zone has undergone extensive independent testing with excellent results.
The system is self-adjusting and utilises the patient’s weight and movements to redistribute the pre-filled internal air reservoir to achieve constant low surface pressure. The air cells are split into 3 independent sections to prevent bottoming out when seated. The castellated surface of the top layer of foam reinforces the pressure redistribution effect.
Multiple layers within the mattress move independently, reducing the risk of shearing.
With a built-in, sloped heel section, the pressure is reduced in the heel area.
The CuroCell AREA Zone comes with a removable, elastic and flexible cover with welded seams. The soft and elastic material is vapour permeable which means that the risk of skin maceration is reduced. The cover is easy to clean and handle and has a very well documented hygienic standard.
