Alternate™

Alternate™ Low Air Loss Alternating Pressure Therapy

Alternate™ is designed to prevent and treat pressure injuries by offering active pressure redistribution in two therapy modes: 1-in-3 alternation and static. The top cover and blower combine to provide effective low air loss, a feature designed specifically for pressure injury prevention.
Sizewise also offers a bariatric option—Mighty Air™. Both products are available for rent or purchase nationwide.
 

Low Air Loss

Our low air loss alternating pressure mattresses have laser-drilled micro holes in the air cells which continually blow out air via the control unit. As a result, moisture is wicked away and the patient stays dry and cool for improved microclimate management.

 

1-in-3 Alternation

1-in-3 alternation deflates every third cell depending on the programmed cycle time (between 3 to 20 minutes). This allows for optimal pressure redistribution for the treatment and prevention of skin breakdown.

Advanced Top Cover

Alternate is designed with a Nylon Denier - Polyurethane Coated top cover, enhancing the healing properties of the mattress.

Bed Frame with Side Rails

Vapor-Permeable

Promotes airflow through the fabric for improved microclimate management but remains resistant to fluid egress, enhancing infection control and prevention.


Lock

Low-Friction/Anti-Shear

The polyurethane coated surface is low-friction, minimizing shear and improving pressure injury prevention and treatment.


Speaker making sound

Chemical-Resistance

Resists breakdown due to harsh cleaning chemicals—supporting CDC cleaning guidelines and a higher level of infection control and prevention.
