PURAP is based upon a fluid-based, 3D flotation technology that minimizes skin pressures and maintains optimal microclimate temperatures to help reduce or eliminate pressure ulcers. PURAP is adjustable to fit people of various sizes.
3D FLOTATION TECHNOLOGY = LOWEST PRESSURES
Most 'support surfaces' such as spring, gel-foam, and low air-loss mattresses are compressible, flat and two dimensional. A compressed material increases pressures because it wants to 'spring' back to its original state. PURAP, with its revolutionary three dimensional (3D) flotation technology, does not compress, fills in uneven body surfaces to maximize contact and direct support area. The 3D flotation technology evenly supports bony regions of the body and spreads out peak pressures over the whole support area to minimize all pressures.
CLINICAL STUDIES PROVE PURAP IS BETTER THAN ALTERNATIVES
We have conducted several studies and collected a large amount of pressure data. We focused on measuring peak tissue interface pressures because pressure ulcers form at areas of high pressures.
PURAP INCLINE PRESSURE MAPPING STUDY
A pressure study was conducted on several specialized surfaces, with the head of the bed at 0°, 30°, 60° inclines. The study shows that PURAP, with its 3D flotation technology, performs significantly better than other high-priced specialized support surfaces at all incline angles.
SKIN INTERFACE TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENTS
Managing skin temperature is also critical in preventing, reducing or treating pressure ulcers. PURAP’s technology is able to maintain skin interface temperatures in a range that is comfortable to the patient and minimizes pressure ulcer formation or growth.
