Cair® 1000

Bariatric low air loss therapy system (VA only)

The Cair 1000 is a unique bariatric therapy system that provides pressure redistribution by combining low air loss with pulsation. Low air loss therapy has been demonstrated to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers as well as being a valuable aid in the treatment of pressure ulcers.

Clinical Indications

  • Pressure redistribution: Stage I ‐ IV Pressure Ulcers; Moisture Management Required; Rehabilitation; Burns; Neurology; Dermatology; Amputations
  • Pain Management: AIDS; Arthritis; Oncology


Control Unit Therapy Features

  • Bariatric true low air loss for moisture management
  • Three modes of operation – Autofirm, Therapy and Pulsate
  • Autofirm assists patients and caregivers during patient transfer and treatment
  • Therapy control settings for eight levels to maximize patient compliance and promote healing
  • Pulsate feature increases patient comfort and pressure redistribution
  • Automatic panel lockout to avoid unwanted or accidental adjustment
  • Fowler boost sensor optimizes support when head of bed is raised to approximately 30 degrees
  • Closed loop control system eliminates concerns of changes in mattress interface pressure due to patient repositioning and ambient temperature changes
