Alpha Active 3

Pressure redistribution mattress overlay system with two modes of action

The Alpha Active® 3 pressure redistribution mattress overlay system offers a number of features designed to deliver effective pressure ulcer prevention and management for the home and community care environments.

With two modes of operation, Alpha Active 3 assists with prevention and treatment protocols, whilst accommodating clinical and resident/patient needs.

Active/alternating mode: periodically redistributing pressure away from vulnerable areas, by alternately inflating and deflating cells beneath the resident/patient. Ideal for prevention in high risk residents/patients, particularly those cannot be frequently repositioned 1.

Reactive/static mode: cell pressure is equalised to redistribute the body weight over a greater surface area. Ideal for residents/patients in rehabilitation or that cannot tolerate a moving surface.

  • Ergonomic, compact and quiet pump, which is ideal for the community care facility and the home.
  • Variable pressure control settings allowing individual pressures to be set via a simple control unit.
  • Static head cells, which enhances head section comfort and stability.
  • Modular construction, which enables easier cleaning and maintenance.
  • Audio and visual alarms, including a low pressure, power fail alarm and pump fault alarms.
  • Easy-to-use transportation function, in which cell pressures are automatically equalised.
