Discrete Pressure Range Settings – Pro-care 4 offers 10 levels of pressure settings for patients ranging from 40KG to 200KG. We believe that providing smaller & more precise pressure intervals will make a huge difference in patient comfort.
Enhanced Heel Protection – The heels are one of the most vulnerable parts of the human body in developing pressure injuries. The heel zone of Pro-care 4 is composed of 5 individually excludable cells. Caregivers can deflate the cells according to the position of the patient’s heels, floating & protecting the heels with zero pressure.
Apex QubiCell ™ - Designed to increase patient’s contact area, Apex’s patented QubiCellTM not only offers a more even pressure redistribution for pressure area care but also provides a flatter & smoother surface for patients to rest on with better comfort.
4 Features to Lighten Caregiver’s Burden:
Simple & Intuitive User Interface – The control panel is designed to be as simple as possible, allowing caregivers to operate the system with little to no learning effort.
Auto Control Panel Lock – The system will automatically lock when it is left untouched. Caregivers can feel secure that their settings on the system will not be altered by accident.
Welded Seams Cover with 2-Way Zippers - Pro-care 4’s water resistance cover is made with welded seams, sealing the inside of the mattress from any fluid ingress. This lightens the clean-up task of caregivers & reduces cross-infection risk for patients. With the cover’s 2-way zipper, the caregiver can simply remove the cover for cleaning from any side that best fits his/her workflow.
Quick storage & installation - The Pro-care 4 system comes with a buckle strap attached under the mattress. Simply place & roll the pump in the mattress; buckle up the strap and store the system. To install the system, repeat the steps backward and connect the quick connector to the pump.
Pressure injuries treatment is not only costly but it also carries the risk of death. As the saying goes “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”, an alternating pressure redistribution system is an effective way for pressure injuries prevention. Such systems can help long-term bedridden patients to recover smoothly without enduring further complications.
