Mercury Advance SMARTcare® is an innovative solution in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. It offers effective dual therapy in a single surface by combining advanced, clinically proven technologies previously only available in separate hybrid surfaces. Advanced air displacement technology incorporated into a unique 4 zone configuration now provides more effective pressure redistribution.
When used in non-powered mode, clinically proven advanced air displacement technology continually optimises and improves pressure redistribution in response to patient body weight and movement. The unique ‘air only’ heel zone effectively off loads pressure on the vulnerable heel area.
When used in powered/dynamic mode Mercury Advance SMARTcare® delivers pressure relief via a series of connected alternating foam and air cells. Unencumbered by a top layer of foam on the mattress, the unique ‘foam in air cell’ construction ensures the delivery of effective pressure relieving therapy. Dependent on clinical judgement, the alternating function can be operated on either a Low or High Pressure.
Mercury Advance SMARTcare® pressure maps 20% better than a high specification foam mattress and has a higher maximum weight capacity of up to 40 stone / 254kg. All component parts are interchangeable and replaceable, maximising product life, reducing dynamic mattress usage and offering a very cost effective solution to pressure care management. The outer Dartex vapour permeable, multi way stretch fabric cover incorporates high frequency welded seams and deep flap zip protection conforming to the strictest infection control policies.
