The Invacare Glissando Gliding Mattress features a premium four-way stretch cover and two layers of high-density foam with a patented "gliding" layer designed to help reduce friction and shear which can contribute to development of pressure ulcers.
A patented design allows the mattress to conform simultaneously to individuals and the bed frame, optimizing the features of an articulating bed. A Castellation-cut foam redistributes pressure for user comfort.
More than 75% of individuals using a Glissando Mattress in the study had pressure ulcers heal within 8 weeks.
Two-part construction with a patented "gliding" layer enable top and bottom sections to move independently as mattress is articulated. Also, the Built-in sidewall supports facilitate user ingress/egress-cut foam redistributes pressure for user comfort.
Fluid-resistant cover features a concealed zipper to help protect the foam.
