Microclimate Management the critical link to skin integrity
• Microclimate refers to the conditions of moisture and temperature at the point(s) of skin/surface interface¹
• Microclimate is a key factor for patients at risk of maceration and skin breakdown
• Excess variation in moisture and/or temperature increases skin sensitivity to the damaging effects of pressure, shear, and friction²

Arjo's Skin IQ® Microclimate Manager (MCM) is a fluid resistant, vapor permeable, single patient use mattress cover for use with a pressure redistribution surface to help prevent and treat Stage I-IV pressure injuries. Powered by Negative Airflow Technology (NAT), Skin IQ MCM continually draws away excess moisture from the skin/surface interface and helps control skin temperature.

• A waterproof, vapour-permeable top layer that offers a bacterial and viral barrier¹

• Negative Airflow Technology (NAT) continually draws excess moisture away from the skin / mattress interface. Bench studies show that Skin IQ MCM removes 3.8 times more moisture at the skin/mattress interface than the same mattress without Skin IQ MCM²

• Bench studies show that Skin IQ MCM reduces staphylococcus aureus growth by 3.1 logs over a 24 hour period. A percentage reduction of greater than 99.9%.³ *

• Bench studies show that Skin IQ MCM significantly reduces odour at the skin/mattress interface when compared to the same surface without airflow⁴

• Designed for compatibility with pressure redistribution mattresses on the market today (eg, AtmosAir™ 9000 Mattress Replacement System)

Simple features, sophisticated performance

Effective for your patients
• The Skin IQ MCM provides a moisture vapour transfer rate (MVTR) of 130g/m2/hr²
• Top layer material helps reduce shear and friction‎⁷
• Quick, intuitive setup and maintenance
• Low profile design
