Stratus Alternating Air Pressure Relief Cushion System

If you're at high-to-very-high risk of pressure sores, it's important that you take the steps necessary to prevent them from occurring in the first place as they can be challenging to relieve. The Stratus Alternating Air Pressure Relief Cushion System includes the Stratus Alternating Air Pressure Relief Cushion and BOS ST150 Analogue Pump to prevent pressure sores. The system helps re-position your body so blood can circulate easily to your skin, which in turn prevent decubitis pressure ulcers from forming.

Key Features and Benefits of the Stratus System

  • Includes both the cushion and pump to prevent pressure sores
  • Ideal for those needing pressure relief
  • Suited to high-to-very-high-risk patients
  • Features foam on the front edge to increase cushion height
  • Designed with a scalloping front for extra leg comfort
  • Supplied with a water-resistant, vapour-permeable cover
  • Allows cushion and your skin to breathe
  • Parallel cells inflate alternately every four to six minutes
  • Automatically re-positions you in your chair
  • Allows blood to circulate to the skin
  • Reduces the risk of decubitus pressure ulcers from forming

How Does an Air Alternating Cushion Work?

The cushion is constructed with parallel cells that inflate alternately every four to six minutes. The cells are configured in an A, B, A, B, A, B layout, meaning that when all the A cells inflate, the B cells deflate, whereas when the B cells inflate, the A cells deflate. This means that the patient is automatically re-positioned so blood can circulate to the skin, which in turn reduces the risk of decubitus pressure ulcers forming.

Ideal for Respite Relief

The Alternating Pressure Relief Cushion System is designed to relieve pressure from the buttocks. The support is suitable for use when you need respite relief from your bed and need to be transferred to a chair.

Comfortable Construction

The Stratus Alternating Air Cushion System uses foam at the front edge of the cushion to increase the overall height, with scalloping for extra leg comfort. This cushion is supplied complete with a water-resistant, vapour-permeable cover. This protects the inner workings of the cushion from spillages and urine, ensuring it functions correctly and at its best.

BOS ST160 Analogue Pump

The ST160 is an improved analogue-controlled, adjustable pressure pump. With a modern take on the classic analogue unit associated with many of these types of systems, the pump is an excellent way of ensuring the system remains not just effective but also user friendly. The ST160 Analogue Pump is robustly designed and quiet, making it suitable for use in a wide range of settings, from your living room to a cinema.

Portable Version Available

Please note that this Alternating Air Pressure Relief Cushion is mains operated. If you're looking for a portable version of this cushion, the BOS Combo 100 System Portable Alternating Pressure Relief Cushion is an excellent alternative.

Product arrived within 24 hours, simple to get operational, does what it is supposed to do. My wife (the patient) is pleased with the product..

I submitted by post a claim to recover the VAT, I have not received any notification if this has been accepted although my credit card statement shows having been charged the full amount.
