DermaFloat® APM

Alternating pressure therapy system

The DermaFloat APM is an advanced alternating pressure therapeutic mattress replacement system that provides pressure redistribution and a comfortable, safe healing environment for the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers up to Stage IV. 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. Also, the use of the integrated CairRails mitigates risk and provides your patient with a safe, secure healing environment.
