The innovative VACUFORM 2.0 MicroSpace system
The secret of perfect adaption to the body by VACUFORM 2.0 surgical matresses is microballs of styrofoam, which are stabilised by vacuum to give a lasting, completely supportive form.
Reducing the diameter of the filler balls by a fifth enables significantly more precise adaption of the surgical matresses to the body. The new MicroSpace system increases the feeling of physical comfort for the patient significantly compared to conventional fillings.
Decubitus prophylaxis in the operating theatre
Particularly during lengthy surgical procedures or for older patients or patients of a weaker constitution, there is a risk of bed sores in the form of acute decubitus ulcers, and paresis (paralysis from injury to the nerves).
The VACUFORM 2.0 surgical mattress adapts individually and ergonomically to the patient’s body to offer effective prevention of such injuries. The patient’s contact pressure is distributed effectively throughout the body and thus minimised, while preserving the micro-circulation necessary for the skin. The patient perceives noticeable comfort, and feels light and warm.
