The Opera® Flo Full-replacement Air Mattress System is a high risk alternating pressure mattress designed for use in hospitals, care homes, nursing units and the home environment. The Flo has a pressure risk category rating of 3, meaning it is able to accommodate users susceptible of pressure ulcers as high as Grade 3. A row of 16 individual, alternating air cells that rest on a 50mm foam base make up the Opera® Flo system. The cells are operated by an extra-low noise air pump, providing superior user comfort. The flexible foam base and the air cells arranged individually, ensure the Flo profiles easily on the profiling bed it is used with.
The Opera® Flo uses intelligent pressure sensing technology, achieving optimal internal pressure and ensuring maximum pressure relief for the user. The air cells are micro vented to provide user moisture and temperature regulation, and the head zone of the mattress is comprised of 3 static cells for patient comfort. The air pump has an integrated audible and visible alert that signals when pressure in the air cells is too low, and there is also a rapid deflation facility for CPR which is operated by a red toggle. There is an adjustable user weight setting from 26-150kg, operated by a dial on the air pump control panel. This allows the mattress to supply the correct amount of pressure for the specific needs of the user. The mattress is enclosed by a PU water resistant and vapour-permeable cover which is quilted to enhance user comfort and skin protection. The cover is wipe-clean for advanced infection control and is also machine washable.
The Flo Air Mattress is just 7" deep, meaning it is suitable for use with care beds like the Opera® Eco (see here). At just 7", the Flo is still able to comply with the BS EN 60601-2-52:2010 medical beds standard without the need for additional, bolt-on extension side rails to be used with the Eco bed. All Opera® profiling beds are able to capacitate mattresses of at least 7", with the ProSafe able to accommodate 10" deep mattresses. View them here.
