DolphinCare™ Integrated Bed System
Fluid Immersion Simulation® integrated with the evolutionary UltraCare® XT
The DolphinCare Integrated Bed System incorporates the gold standard of care for complex wounds with the safety, reliability and adaptability of the UltraCare XT bed frame. Designed to automatically redistribute pressure by simulating the effects of a body immersed in a fluid medium, DolphinCare’s Fluid Immersion Simulation (FIS) delivers minimal tissue deformation and near normal blood flow, which lead to improved tissue perfusion and wound healing. Meanwhile, DolphinCare’s strong and innovative frame reduces injury risk to both patients and caregivers, and can be easily transformed to fit any configuration or room style. This all-encompassing wound care solution is simple and easy to use, yet achieves unparalleled wound care outcomes, reduces the risk of injury and helps promote early patient mobility.
- DolphinCare’s Fluid Immersion Simulation technology reduces soft tissue distortion and promotes blood flow, creating a platform that is highly effective for the prevention and healing of pressure ulcers through Stage IV, as well as treating patients with post-operative flaps and grafts.
- DolphinCare may also be used for patients whose medical conditions preclude turning and repositioning, or where these interventions may be contraindicated as they place the patient at risk for further compromise, as well as patients with spinal cord injury once the acute injury has been stabilized and these patients have been cleared by a physician. In all cases, Joerns clinical indications are guidelines and should be taken only as recommendations for consideration during individual patient assessment by the clinician.
- Prevents and treats wounds by simulating immersion of the patient in a fluid medium
- Minimizes soft tissue deformation and maintains near normal blood flow
- Automatically adjusts to each patient’s weight, surface area and repositioning
- FIS therapy spans the entire therapy surface of DolphinCare, limiting potential for pressure gradients due to edge effects
