The alternating pressure system for demanding applications
Aero4 mattresses consist of small-structure air cells. In alternating pressure operation 75% of the cells are inflated, while the air pressure is reduced in the remaining 25%. The effect on the blood circulation of the tissue is similar to the positive effect of everyday movements. The patient’s body weight is distributed more evenly and point loads are reduced.
As an option to alternating pressure, a gentle, evenly distributed pressure can be set in all air cells. In this case, the patient sinks deeper into the mattress, relieving the entire body. It feels comfortable and calming for the reclining person.
The alternating pressure system of the Aero4 range promotes pressure ulcer prevention:

The gentle change of cell pressure resembles everyday movements and avoids any spatial disorientation of the patient
The Aero4 plus version, with a cell height of 24 cm, provides particularly strong protection against pressure ulcers
