Carewise 5.1® features a diamond die-cut upper layer that redistributes pressure, reduces shear, and allows air to circulate in order to keep patients comfortable. The highly resilient, super-soft foam heel area is 59 percent softer than the mattress body to protect vulnerable heels, and a full-length base provides a supportive foundation to prevent bottoming out. Firm side perimeters provide safer transfer and reduce the risk of entrapment and falls. The foam itself features antimicrobial qualities that can aid with infection control, and the mattress is latex- and PVC-free.
This mattress includes a two-way stretch, low-shear, antimicrobial, fluid-resistant, breathable cover for fluid-ingress protection. The top cover is a two-way stretch, polyurethane-coated fabric that allows for patient/resident envelopment.
