Quattro® Acute, the market leading and highly regarded 1-in-4 alternating therapy mattress, has been refreshed; combining the expertise of Talley Group and Direct Healthcare Group to bring a significantly overhauled control unit design and improved functionality that:
- Provides an easier to clean control unit, with reduced connection points, inserts and crevices, for adhesion to stricter infection control protocols.
- Clearer and easier operation of the control unit, with inputs and an LCD screen now located on the top panel.
- The addition of an NFC tag to enable simple reading of control unit information, whilst servicing information can be easily accessed through the system information button.
- Internal changes that make for easier servicing of cells.
The Quattro® Acute mattress system uniquely offers DEEP CELL THERAPY™, combing 1-in-4 alternation with continuous low pressure to provide pressure ulcer prevention and treatment in the most dependent of patients.
The active 1-in-4 cell cycle supports 75% of the patient’s body at all times, on groups of three inflated cells, whilst the fourth cell deflates sufficiently to redistribute the pressure and encourage tissue reperfusion. Additional benefits of the 1-in-4 system may include increased patient comfort, and less awareness of the support surface movement.
DEEP CELL THERAPY™ allows the cells of the Quattro® Acute to run at lower internal pressures. This minimises the pressure applied to the patient’s skin and subcutaneous tissues during the cycle.
TISSUEgard™ enables the partial immersion and envelopment of the patient into the support surface, reducing the pressure on the patient’s skin and decreasing the pressure differential between inflated and deflated cells, helping to reduce associated shearing forces.
Ortho-Differential Support (ODS) results in firmer outer edges of the mattress, which facilitate patient transfers and provide extra support, safety and comfort for larger or heavier patients. It also creates a softer central area of the mattress, ideal for smaller, lighter patients.
The waterproof, moisture-vapour permeable properties of the multi-stretch cover, combined with a low air loss feature within the mattress helps manage the skin microclimate.
All Quattro® products are designed to be intuitive. The simply designed interface and easy-touch buttons allow the carer to control all essential functions such as the Dual Therapy modes providing either Active therapy or Continuous Low Pressure therapy, soft, medium and firm comfort settings, and Max-Inflate mode.
The patient transport facility turns the mattress into a static, unpowered surface for over 12 hours.
