The Latco lateral turning mattress will turn a person laterally during the night every 10 minutes whilst also being able to either be a dynamic alternating very high risk mattress or static high risk mattress at the same time.
The air cells within the 4 way stretch cover have castellated foam within them, this allows the mattress to become a static high risk mattress if the dynamic function is turned off.
Simple controls on the side of the mattress allow the carer to easily change the functions to the dynamic mattress, static or lateral turn modes or any combination of the three (excluding static & dynamic at the same time).
This is achieved within one mattress which also saves the person having to be transfered to other products or adding additional equipment under the mattress.
Surrounding the air cells are high density foam walls that when the user is being turned protects them from rolling eliminating the need of cotsides for certain users.
The mattress turns the user 13 degrees in one direction every 10 minutes giving a 30 minute full cycle including the flat position.
