The Opera® Depend is a high/very high risk pressure mattress designed for acute use in hospitals, care homes/units and is also suitable for the home environment. This static mattress has a pressure risk category rating of 3/4, meaning the Depend is suitable for users susceptible of pressure ulcers as high as Grades 3 and 4. The Depend is a composition of layered premium grade foams with firm support edges to ease user transfers. The pressure relieving surface foam uses a hinged profile technique which allows a smooth lying surface with no castellations, providing outstanding levels of comfort. The high-density edging foam ensures the mattress profiles effortlessly by using a key-hole profiling technique, making the Opera® Depend an ideal fit with most profiling beds. The firmness of the mattress' lying surface is firm and supportive.
The Opera® Depend mattress is enclosed by a multi-stretch, vapour-permeable cover to ensure the mattress is water resistant, but still breathable to prevent odours becoming trapped in the mattress body. The cover is wipe-clean for advanced infection control, and impregnated with antimicrobial agent in the fabric coating, meaning the Depend is resistant to bacterial growth including MRSA, fungal growth and house dust mite. The cover has high-frequency welded seams with a fluid ingress prevention flap over the zip on the three sides of the mattress, ensuring fluids cannot penetrate the mattress body through the zip. An audit box, rotation cycle and care and cleaning instructions are also printed on the cover. The Depend also offers a 2-way turn cycle, designed to prolong the life of the mattress. The durability and longevity of this mattress is assured with a lengthy 4 year reducing warranty.
The Depend is available in two sizes: 900mm (3ft) wide; and 1200mm (4ft wide). This enables the Opera® Depend to be used with extra-wide profiling beds such as the Prolixus bed.
