Pure Air 8 Acute is a multi-therapy pressure relief mattress.

A self-regulating, smart control unit manages enhanced levels of patient care at low pressures.

It’s suitable for those up to, and including, very high risk of developing pressure ulcers or who have existing tissue damage.

A series of innovative safety features ensure the surface meets diverse patient requirements within ITU, ward or community care environments.

Self Regulating

Fully automatic pressure adjustment instantly reacts to changes determined by patient weight and positioning.

This reduces the time Carers spend checking the pressure level is correctly set.

The Cared For can rest assured that they are receiving optimum pressure relief at all times.

4 Operation Modes

Constant Low Pressure

Reduces the contact pressure by increasing the surface area over which the patient is supported. By contouring to the shape of the body, the patient is gently immersed into the mattress.


Alternate cells deflate and inflate over a defined time period causing the pressure over any one part of the body to change regularly.


Creates tissue stimulus by alternately increasing and decreasing the cell pressure of the constant low pressure mode by 20% in each direction.

Max Inflate

Quickly inflates the cells to maximum pressure,  providing a stable, static support surface to aid patient transfers and nursing procedures.

Zoned Surface

durable logoStatic head cells provide increased stability, support and comfort for the Cared For.

durable logoNarrow heel cells provide increased support for lower weight patients.

Safety Features

Patient Egress Alert

This can be turned on or off depending on nursing requirements and provides an audio-visual signal if the occupant leaves the bed.

Constantly Inflated Sub Cell

Reduces the risk of the patient ‘bottoming out’.

Automatic Function Lockout

Automatically locks out all functionality 2 minutes after a function change to ensure buttons cannot be accidentally pressed.

Power Failure & Low Pressure Alert

Audible and visual alerts ensure Carers can respond quickly to keep patients safe should a problem occur.

Multi-stretch, Waterproof & Vapour Permeable Cover

The multi-stretch cover reduces friction and shear as the Cared For move/are repositioned. Waterproof and vapour permeable properties helps control moisture build up.

Machine Washable Cover up to 95°C

Ensures covers can be cleaned and decontaminated effectively to aid infection prevention.

External, Easy Replacement Control Unit Filters

Allows for in-house maintenance rather than requiring professional servicing, saving money for the Care Provider.

CPR Dial

An easy turn CPR dial ensures rapid deflation in the event of an emergency.

Pressure Adjustment for Optimal Comfort

Easy to use pressure adjustment allows Carers to set the mattress to the comfort levels of the individuals they care for.

Securing Straps

Ensures the mattress can be secured in place for patient safety.
