    The Protekt® 500 Gel Infused Foam Pressure Redistribution Mattress features a memory foam infused with the latest VGPT™ or Visco Gel Polymer Technology, facilitating impressive air circulation, keeping the patient cool, and reducing perspiration. The VGPT works faster than traditional foam in drawing heat away from the user's body making it more effective in preventing pressure ulcers. 

    The Protekt® 500 Gel Infused Foam Pressure Redistribution Mattress features a 30° downward slope on the heel area to distribute the pressure evenly from the heel to the less vulnerable leg.

    The Protekt® 500 Gel Infused Foam Pressure Redistribution Mattress is protected by a comfortable, stretchable nylon fabric that is low-friction and has anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties.

    The Protekt® 500 Gel Infused Foam Pressure Redistribution Mattress is also available in the 3" raised rails option for additional safety and support.

    • Reduces the occurrence of pressure sores by channeling heat away from the body significantly faster than traditional foam, virtually eliminating perspiration.
    • Superior pressure redistribution is delivered by providing more support and less cradling at higher levels of compression, redistributing pressure over a large surface area eliminating static fatigue.
    • Protects vulnerable heel area with a 30-degree slope redistributing pressure to the entire leg and away from the heel.
    • PTSS Rail System provides additional support for easy patient transfer and the edge of bed sitting.
    • Stretch nylon top cover reduces perspiration and provides a low shear/friction surface that is antimicrobial/anti-bacterial and fluid resistant.
    • Bottom Cover: Triple laminate vinyl; fluid resistant; anti-microbial/anti-bacterial; fire retardant.
    • Available in 42”, 48”, 54” & 60” widths.
    • Fire sleeve meets Federal Fire Code 16 CFR part 1633.
    • Weight Capacity: 450 lbs.
    • Optional raised rails are available in all sizes.
      Interface pressure readings performed by an independent certified testing company are available upon request.
    • It has a Visco memory foam head and torso that is loaded with gel polymers.
    • Heat is drawn away from the body much faster than regular foam, and perspiration is nearly completely eliminated.
    • To promote air circulation, give greater submersion into the mattress, distribute pressure over a broader surface area, and provide additional support to the user, it is used in conjunction with precision cut air pockets in the foam.
    • The mattress has a 30° slope at the foot to reduce pressure and shift it to the less sensitive lower leg area.
    • Increases air circulation to keep the user's skin cool and dry while also helping to prevent pressure ulcers.
    • Core; 15 Year Non-Prorated.
    • Cover; 2 Year Non-Prorated.

    WOW this is really expensive


    The battery is a perfect replacement for one which had stopped carrying a charge. It’s always good to have a working back up battery on hand.
