The Cairwave replicates the body’s normal physiological mechanism that protects bony prominences from tissue damage due to unrelieved pressure. The 3-cell cycle, pressure elimination technology of the Cairwave Therapy System provides the ultimate protection for the most vulnerable individuals and offers accelerated healing of all grades of pressure ulcers, irrespective of patient mobility.
The Cairwave is considered the product of choice in ICU’s, HDU’s, burns and spinal areas throughout Australia due to its clinically proven ability to provide pressure ulcer relief and therapy in critically ill patients and has proven healing rates in even the most difficult to heal pressure ulcers.
Advanced features of the Cairwave such as a double layer of ultrasonically welded cells which synchronously inflate and deflate and active vacuum assisted cell deflation combine to provide frequent periods of complete pressure elimination which stimulates reactive hyperaemia and promotes blood flow thereby maximising pressure relief to the high risk areas such as the sacrum, trochanter and heels.
Features and benefits
Pressure Elimination Technology
Stimulates reactive hyperaemia and promotes blood and lymph flow in deep tissue.
Vacuum assisted deflation
Enhances the pressure elimination phase to aid the treatment of even the most severe pressure ulcers.
3-cell 7 ½ minute cycle
Eliminates pressure completely every 2½ minutes. This process has been designed to replicate the body’s natural spontaneous movement, therefore enhancing comfort and pressure relief.
Twin layer of alternating cells
Synchronously inflate and deflate cells to provide superior pressure care performance.
Powerful linear piston compressors
Provide optimum performance of cell alternation even against back pressure of patient’s weight.
Ultrasonically welded cell structure
All cells in each layer are ultrasonically welded together to eliminate air cell encroachment and allow each deflating cell to efficiently retract away from body contact.
Intuitive, always visible and accessible CPR release valve provides rapid deflation in approx. 10 seconds.
Integral side formers
Permanently inflated side formers provide a firm mattress edge to ensure patient stabilisation and fall prevention (NSQHS standard 10) during exits or transferring to a trolley/chair.
Static head cells
Top 3 cells in the head zone of the mattress remain inflated (static), providing patient comfort, support and stability.
Automatically adjusts pressure settings in response to patient weight and position to optimise pressure relief and ensure that staff are not burdened with difficult product set-up.
Auto timed Static mode
Provides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy and wound cleaning. A safety automatic return to Dynamic mode after 30 minutes ensures that patients are not put at risk of pressure damage.
24-hour Transport mode
Easy to operate one way valve lets mattress remain inflated for at least 24 hours and also facilitates patient/bed movement without unnecessary risk to patient.
Audible and visual alarms
A sophisticated set of audible and visual alarm functions provide enhanced patient safety and ensures peace of mind for nursing staff.
Dartex cover with welded seams
Soft, easy to clean, waterproof Dartex cover provides a complete barrier against viruses and blood, minimising infection control risks.
Unique anti-hammocking cover
Unique pre-tensioned design ensures that the cover conforms tightly to the cell shape thereby eliminating hammocking across the deflated cell and optimising the zero pressure phase of the cycle.
