Gel-infused foam keeps the user cool while offering superior pressure redistribution.
The Protekt 500 pressure redistribution mattress by Proactive Medical offers the latest, most effective technology to provide superior therapy for the user. The Protekt 500 has a head and torso area made of Visco memory foam that's infused with gel polymers. This gel features the latest VGPT™, or Visco Gel Polymer Technology, which draws heat away from the body much faster than traditional foam, and almost entirely elimiates perpiration. VGPT is utilized in combination with precision cut air pockets in the foam to increase the circulation of air, provide better submersion into the mattress, distribute pressure over a larger surface area, and provide more support to the user.
The Protekt 500 features a a 30° slope at the foot of the mattress to decrease pressure and redistribute it to the less vulnerable lower leg area. The heel section has a top layer of aerated, Lura-Quilt™ foam which increases the circulation of air to keep the user's skin cool and dry, and protect against pressure ulcers.
To protect the mattress from wear and tear, there is a top cover that is made of a comfortable yet durable 4-way stretch nylon. This cover is low-friction and low-shear to protect against skin breakdown, and is both anti-microbial and fluid-resistant. The cover has a 360° zipper that is protected by a flap to keep contaminants and fluids away from the inner foam core.
The Protekt 500 is also available with optional 3" raised side rails to increase support and make transfers easier.
