NPT3™ Gel-Infused Foam Support Surface

Many hospital mattresses are made with poor pressure redistribution features or with materials that absorb bodily fluids, creating infection control and pressure injury concerns.  
NPT3™ is a breakthrough in support surface innovation. NPT3™ is designed with three advanced technologies that support facility and clinical priorities: infection control, wound care, and green initiatives.

Pressure Redistribution

NPT3 is designed with twelve foam-filled cells providing three separate zones of support, with head-to-heel coverage for patient comfort.
The optional pump adds 1-in-2 alternation therapy for pressure injury prevention.

Vented Technology

Air is vented in and out of the mattress until equalization is reached; ensuring pressure equalization. This maximizes immersion and provides advanced pressure redistribution for all body types.

CuPro™ Copper-Infused Foam

New CuPro™ copper-infused, thermoresponsive foam breathes more freely while copper particles help dissipate heat more efficiently, keeping the patient cool.

Infection Control

Most medical mattresses utilize top cover fabric easily compromised by harsh cleaning chemicals, and sewing methods used during production punch thousands of tiny holes in the fabric. Both realities create openings for fluid ingress and contamination of internal components. NPT3 is designed with advanced technologies for improved infection control.

Extreme Polycarbonate Top Cover

NPT3 is designed with an extreme polycarbonate fabric which resists cleaning chemicals—supporting CDC cleaning guidelines and a higher level of infection control and prevention.

Mattress Asset Protection
(MAP) Liner

For additional protection, NPT3 includes our industry-first Mattress Asset Protection (MAP) Liner, a barrier that protects internal components from contamination—the ultimate patient safeguard.

RF-Welded Seams

Instead of needle-sewn construction, NPT3™ is designed with radio-frequency welded seams, eliminating needle holes and providing a superior fluid barrier.

Green Friendly

NPT3 is part of our Envy® line of support surfaces — designed with fabrics, foam, and fire barriers without chemicals of concern.

FDA and TJC Recommendations: Damaged or Worn Covers

NPT3™ specifically addresses the FDA’s 2013 infection control warning related to damaged mattresses1 and its additional guidance in 2017.2,3 The mattress also supports The Joint Commission’s National Patient Safety Goals® program to prevent errors and maintain patient safety—specifically NPSG.07.03.01: Reduce the risk of healthcare-associated infections.4,5
