New product sure to turn beds Alpine HC has launched a new range of turning adjustable beds to complement their existing range of profiling beds. The beds are all designed to help patients reach a standing position independently through advanced mechanisms such as rotational mattress platforms and front exit tilt. The new range includes a rotating chair bed that can be fitted into an existing bed base and a customisable rotating chair bed with head/foot board and wood colour options. For more information about the new range, call 0333 122 2430 or visit www.alpinehc.co.uk

AeroSpacer range uses innovative textile AeroSpacer Cushion The new reactive therapeutic support cushion, comprising of 3D spacer textile, is evidenced to provide effective pressure redistribution, reduce temperature & moisture at the skin/surface interface, reduce shear strain and improve comfort levels when compared to high specification foam Due to the unique construction of the cushion and the properties of 3D spacer textile, instead of a ‘one style fits all’ approach, the AeroSpacer cushion performs subtly different depending on the orientation of the cushion, i.e. whether number 1, 2, 3 or 4 is positioned to the front. Therefore, users may perceive one orientation to feel more comfortable or supportive depending on their anatomy. Some users may also find one orientation helps to support asymmetric posture. The cushion can be laundered, not only improving governance with infection prevention procedures but also providing cash savings due to extended product life.

AeroSpacer Heel Off-Loader The new AeroSpacer Heel-Off-Loader provides a clinically effective and costeffective alternative to current heel offloading devices that, according to the company, eliminates the many drawbacks of existing heel off-loading devices. Comprised of innovative 3D spacer textile, the solution does not cause sweating, with the textile having been demonstrated to effectively manage microclimate. Other benefits include enhanced pressure redistribution and reduced shear stress, improved comfort and increased concordance with use and improved governance with infection prevention and extended product life as it can be laundered between patients. Importantly, the Heel Off-Loader does not inhibit mobilisation and stays put even with restless patients thanks to the non-slip base of the welded Xtreme, moisture vapour permeable, waterproof cover.
