Opera® Synergy Hybrid Mattress
The Opera® Synergy Hybrid Profiling Mattress combines static and active mattress technologies to provide pressure relief and high levels of user comfort. The system epitomises the definition of synergy; the interaction of elements (air and foam) that, when combined, produce a greater result than the sum of the individual elements.
The components of the Opera® Synergy
The Opera® Synergy combines a number of components to creat an advanced pressure relieving mattress for users at very high risk of pressure sores.
Self-adjusting cell technology
Opera® Synergy uses a self-adjusting air cell technology that responds to user body movement to effectively redistribute pressure exerted on the mattress. The cells use exposed air valves to naturally inhale and exhale air from the mattress body.
Soft foam node surface
A 2-inch castellated CMHR foam provides the lying surface of the Opera® Synergy. The surface is formed from a grid of 2040 individually semi-rounded nodes that envelop the user, resulting in advanced pressure relief and superior comfort.

Soft Foam Node Surface
Heel zone pressure relief
The Opera® Synergy is tapered down at the foot end of the mattress. This results in the user's thighs taking most of their leg weight, spreading the pressure over a greater area of skin and reducing pressure and shear on the vulnerable heel skin.
Securing straps and handling loops
Securing straps ensure the Opera® Synergy can be secured to a profiling bed base. Handling loops ease patient transfer and emergency

"For the last ten years I have been looking for a mattress that would fill the gap between a static foam mattress and an air mattress and finally I have a solution."

The key benefits of the Opera® Synergy
The Opera® Synergy's non-powred self-adjusting air cell technology and foam composition provide a number of benfits to care facilities, carers and patients. These include:
Comfort complaints associated with air mattresses are removed
The Opera® Synergy provides a much more comfortable lying surface for patients than an air mattress and eliminates the 'sea sick' feeling often associated with alternating air cells. The self-adjusting air cells in the Synergy mattress system are non-powered and do not require a pump unit, thus eliminating comfort complaints arising from pump noise.
The Opera® Synergy's ability to function without powered components or pump mechanisms greatly reduces maintenance issues and associated costs.
Numerous benefits for users with dementia
The Opera® Synergy is non-powered and doesn’t require a pump. This presents significant benefits for dementia patients as the mattress appears normal, it doesn’t omit any sound and it is extremely comfortable, reducing confusion and frustration. Learn about the Synergy's benefits for dementia patients on our blog.
Suitable for semi-active, very high risk users
The innovative self-adjusting air cell technology contained within the Opera® Synergy mattress responds to user body movement to effectively redistribute pressure. This requires either: the user to be semi-active and able to move on the mattress; or care to include a turning plan.
"The Opera® Synergy mattress has been very well recieved by our nurses from a clinical and maintenance point of view. Our service users also find it very comfortable."
