• Cell on Cell designed to provide additional support and to help increase patient stability

• Electronic pressure setting – allows accurate and appropriate pressure settings to be set for various weight ranges
• Variable cycle times – In addition to a 10 minute cycle time, the Alpha Active 4 system offers the choice of an extended cycle period of 20 minutes, which may be desirable as patients begin to rehabilitate and the risk reduces.
• AutoFirm – provides a stable support surface for patient transfer and nursing procedures.
• 2 Modes of operation
Active / Alternating mode: periodically redistributes pressure away from vulnerable areas by alternately inflating and deflating cells beneath the patient.
Reactive / Static mode: cell pressure is equalized to redistribute the body weight over a greater surface area – ideal for patients unable to tolerate a moving surface
• Audio & Visual alarms – include: Low pressure alarm, Power fail alarm & Pump fault alarm
• Modular construction – contributes to ease of cleaning and maintenance
• Transport Facility – Cell pressures are automatically equalized, leaving an even surface
