Preventative mattress replacement for bariatric use

The Optimal Sumo is used as an aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers up to category 1(1), and is ideal for all healthcare environments. It is a mattress replacement that has been specially designed for bariatric use.

It is equipped with our unique DuoCore sit function, which provides assistance and relief when seated, as well as very good comfort in a lying position. In addition, the DuoCore is also beneficial when using a sliding board or other relocation aids.

Optimal Sumo is delivered with a soft, elastic hygienic cover that is vapour permeable(2), which reduces the risk of skin maceration. It is a durable cover, which is easy to clean and with a very well documented hygienic standard(3). The cover is equipped with a divisible, drip shield zip and functional handles for simple transportation of the mattress.

Optimal Sumo is produced from modern, recyclable materials and meets health care requirements for hygiene, quality and safety.
