The iCare 5cm ActiveX Pressure Mattress Overlay is designed to provide added pressure relief and comfort on an existing mattress. These overlays are heat and pressure sensitive causing them to soften around pressure points and inflamed areas. The overlay features ActiveX™ material as its main comfort layer. ActiveX™ is a high grade of elastic type foam which is responsive to temperature around inflamed areas. ActiveX™ will become softer as it becomes warmer. So around a pressure point it will always soften and allow the blood to circulate freely.
The iCare overlay is made with an Elastex material cover. This fabric has high elasticity in every direction enabling it to conform with body and sleeping surface contour. This makes it an excellent all way contour cover. The overlay has a ventilated side fabric called Vant fabric. It is a three-dimensional polypropylene material that has high air permeability and is also anti-bacterial. This is used on the the side wall of the overlay covers to greatly increase air movement. Moreover, the iCare pressure mattress overlay can also be used on any type of sleeping surface. The pressure redistribution and feel will vary depending on the under surface.
A Mattress Overlay is an affordable way to provide relief for the short-term; especially for short-term illness, recovery from surgery or to provide added comfort to an existing mattress. Overlays are also frequently used with alternating air mattress. By having the overlay on top or underneath the mattress provides a basic layer of comfort. Also air mattresses can be cold to lay on. Having the 50mm ActiveX Mattress Overlay on the top assists with body temperature regulation, while responding to the air pressure within the alternating air mattress. These overlays come in all the mattress sizes up to queen.

*This rating is based on our average peak pressure of <18mmHg. The pressure redistribution and feel will vary depending on the under surface. Some high risk clients may require a medical cover which is not available for this product. Icare risk category ratings are based on average peak pressure, Therapist recommendation, case studies, industry comparison and the Waterlow scale. The best way to assess a client on a pressure reducing surface is to monitor pressure points with visual checks over a period of 5 days.
