Abstract/OtherAbstract:
There are many types of support surfaces available. Selection of a suitable support surface for an individual patient is best done by first identifying the patient's risk of pressure sore development. Transfoam was originally developed in 1990 and is designed for the medium-risk patient. The new design transfoam Wave combines increased comfort with lower interface pressures, to provide another mattress in the Transfoam family. This product focus examines the original Transfoam mattress produced by Karomed and looks at the design and results of early testing of the new Transfoam Wave.
