EHOB, Inc. announces the release of the WAFFLE® Bariatric Mattress Overlay, EHOB’s newest static air overlay, designed for bariatric patients.
Filled with air, which is the ideal media to support and float the most vulnerable soft tissues of the body, the unique design of the WAFFLE Bariatric Mattress Overlay allows the body to sink down into the product providing unprecedented protection (and comfort) while contouring to the body. The low profile chamber of air redistributes the patient’s weight evenly on the surface. The Bariatric Overlay is clinically effective in keeping the patient stable and comfortable while preventing pressure ulcers.
The new WAFFLE Overlay is designed for a bariatric-size bed, measuring 76”x47”x3”, and may also be used on a standard full-size bed for the home. The overlay can easily accompany the patient from acute care to long-term care to their homes. And, the patent-pending, dogbone-shaped handwells safely assist the caregiver with patient and product handling.
Skin temperature and moisture control are achieved through the WAFFLE’s diamond patterned holes, which naturally circulate air while allowing skin to breathe. Combined with a non-abrasive, medical grade vinyl, the overlay substantially reduces pressure and tissue tear.
EHOB offers a number of products for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment, including mattress replacements, seating cushions, day chair pads, lower limb protectors, positioning aids and more. More than 2,200 hospitals, nursing homes and home caregivers rely on EHOB’s support solutions.
The WAFFLE® Bariatric Mattress Overlay is available now for purchase through EHOB’s nationwide resellers and on the company’s Web site, www.ehob.com
