The cover’s enhanced features include the unique design of the anti-microbial bi-directional stretch cover made with Span’s superior LifeSpan® fabric.

Change instantly and easily from alternating pressure to basic lateral rotation with a single, recessed toggle switch. Requires no disconnecting or exchanging of air lines.

The dependable digital control unit is lightweight and quiet. The easy-to-use, white multi-functional control unit provides simple, indexed comfort adjustment and a selectable audible alarm. A timed (20 minute) “Auto Firm” mode facilitates caregiving activities such as transfers, ADLs and CPR and then returns to its previously selected mode.“Alternate Mode” changes loading in a 10-minute cycle of either alternating pressure or lateral rotation therapy as selected at the mattress. “Float” mode provides powered flotation therapy.
