Controllers, Specialty Bed/Mattress System, Low-Air-Loss Therapy
Definition : Controllers designed to be programmed to inflate and deflate interconnected synthetic fabric pillows at preset intervals to provide specialty beds and associated mattress systems with a low-air-loss surface. Typically, inflation intervals are set to alternate with deflation intervals at a controlled rate. These controllers, when used in conjunction with the specialty bed and mattress surface, allow a specialty bed to convert into a low-air-loss therapy bed. Low-air-loss therapy beds are typically used in the care and management of patients who require a mattress surface specifically for facilitating wound healing (e.g., pressure ulcers, burns)
