It's unique shape is the only vacuum mattress on the market that allows access to the patients arms.
The external cover of the VIM is made of a heavy duty, specialised and uniquely manufactured pure reinforced double coated Silik Elastomer™. This material provides a significant improvement over PVC, the standard material used by other Vacuum Mattresses. Improvements of Silik Elastomer™ include:
- 10-15 times more expansive
- Significantly improved abrasion, puncture and tear resistance
- 100% airtight in comparison to the slow leaking PVC materials
The internal beads are of a newly developed material, offering significant improvements over the standard Styrofoam used in other Vacuum Mattresses including:
- Higher density material preventing collapsing of beads
- Significantly improved X-ray translucency
The new patented inner lining system provides a 21 multi-chamber configuration preventing the beads from moving around and clumping in comparison to other Vacuum Mattresses on the market.
The Mattress is also available in a 7 ft version for organisations requiring extra length
