BOS Stratus Air Alternating Anti-Decubitus Cushion System for Sores

Pressure sores are a painful problem that can develop into open wounds exposing underlying bone or muscle. When you work with bedridden patients, you have to ensure that they get sufficient respite relief from their bed so they don't develop such sores. The BOS Stratus Air Alternating Anti-Decubitus Cushion System for Sores ensures your patients' buttocks get enough blood supplied to the area.

  • Supplied with the BOS ST160 Analogue Pump

Prevents High-Risk Pressure Sores

The dynamic Stratus Air Alternating Cushion is proven to be extremely reliable and effective at preventing high-risk grades 1-4 pressure sores. The cushion is made from flexible but strong PVC and consists of two sections: left and right.

Each side of the cushion can be adjusted independently to ensure the patient remains comfortable and maintains the best posture possible. The air cells are suitable for patients up to 120kg.

Alternatively Inflating Cells

The BOS Stratus Air Pressure Cushion has been designed with two sets of cells: group A and group B. These parallel cells are alternatively inflated throughout the cushion and are programmed on a ten minute cycle. Group A cells are inflated first for five minutes. Once five minutes are over, the group A cells deflate and the group B air cells inflate for five minutes to support the client.

This ensures the patient's blood circulates properly to each area in turn. It also gives your patient respite from the pressure that builds when you sit in the same position for too long. The cushion's innovative design reduces the likelihood of your patient getting decubitus sores and ulcers.

Who Can Benefit Most from the Pressure Cushion?

Pressure ulcers usually affect those with underlying health conditions that make it difficult to move around. If you work with patients who are confined to their bed or sit in a chair for long periods of time, the Anti-Decubitus Cushion is ideal to help treat them. People who have conditions that affect the flow of blood in the body, such as type 2 diabetes, are also more vulnerable to pressure sores.

How to Set-Up Your Cushion

  1. Attach the pump tubing to one of the cushion valves. Open the valve by turning it anti-clockwise and inflate the cushion until it arches, then close the valve by turning it clockwise. Remove the pump and carry out the same process for the other side.
  2. Seat the patient with the valves at the front and deflate the cushion by turning the valves anti-clockwise so the patient feels comfortable. Please note you should not allow the patient's bottom to touch the base of the cushion. Close the valves by turning them clockwise.
  3. The distance between the deepest point of a sitting person and the base of the cushion should be approximately 2cm.
  4. If it's possible to slide your hand between the patient and the base of the cushion, the cushion has been set correctly.

Is the Stratus Air Pressure Cushion Suitable for Recliner Chairs?

No, due to the inflating, pressure relief design of the Stratus Air Pressure Cushion, it is not suitable for reclining chairs.
