The Akton Polymer Professional Bed Pad is a 7/8 inch thick, 100% Akton Polymer mattress overlay pad for providing pressure relief. This 17 x 27-inch pressure relief pad is used by hospitals and long-term care facilities to cover an isolated area of an existing standard mattress. People with arthritis will find the pad provides exceptional comfort and pressure relief.
The Akton Polymer Professional Bed Pad has been a significant component in the prevention and treatment of decubitus ulcers in hospitals and long-term care facilities. Sometimes referred to as a gel, Akton polymer supersedes this designation as it redistributes weight, redistributes heat, will not leak, flow, or bottom out, never requires kneading, pumping or inflating of any kind, is easy to use, clean and maintain. The material is tissue equivalent, designed to move with the user, not against them, to reduce pressure and shear, the two leading causes of pressure sores. It contains no latex, plasticizers, or silicones, which are often the cause of allergic reactions. It will not support microbiological growth, and it won't absorb body fluids or odors. The Akton viscoelastic polymer will not migrate like gels and does not promote bacterial growth. The Akton Polymer Professional Bed Pad helps users with arthritis effectively prevent and manage pressure injuries.
