Cair APM

Alternating pressure therapy system (VA only)

The Cair APM is a unique therapy system that provides pressure redistribution by alternating pressure between adjacent (A-B) air cells. Alternating pressure therapy has been demonstrated to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers as well as being a valuable aid in the treatment of those identified as being at risk of developing pressure ulcers.

Clinical Indications

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