Wireless Auto Fowler

When the bed is articulated 45 degrees, the transmitter in the head section of the mattress signals the control unit to increase the pressure in the mattress to prevent the patient from bottoming out. This saves the caregiver time and effort to manually adjust the pressure when the patient wants to sit up.


Fire Sock & Cover

An added safety feature to all of our powered mattresses is a sewn in fire sock. All of the mattresses are compliant with federal fire regulations, meeting 16 CFR 1633 and 16 CFR 1632  standards.

The MA90Z cover is made of urethane with a honeycomb layer, while the MA95Z is a urethane four way stretch quilted cover. Both move with the patient to prevent friction and shear, and are anti-microbial, fluid resistant and vapor permeable.
