Patient Protection - Product Overview - Technology - Peak Pressure - Bottoming Out - Research - Applications

P
atients often complain about being uncomfortable during their
MRI and other imaging studies. A significant part of their
discomfort relates to the mattress pads currently available
on the MRI as well as PET, CT, Nuclear medicine and X-Ray tables.
The current pads were not developed with the purpose of
maximizing patient comfort nor do they use the latest
technology. Patient Comfort Systems introduces its new
patient comfort technology using advanced pressure managing
viscoelastic material. This heat sensitive material molds to the
patient’s exact body shape and contours to evenly distribute
weight and pressure.

What is the Patient Comfort System?

The Patient Comfort System was developed over a 2-year period in close cooperation with leading imaging centers to maximize patient comfort as well as conform to the specific requirements for compatibility and safety. The Patient Comfort System incorporates advanced viscoelastic material. This is the same type of material used in special mattresses that have been recommended by medical professionals worldwide to help their patients reduce pain, increase comfort and improve the quality of sleep.

This polyurethane foam material used for medical imaging has been specifically formulated to maximize patient comfort and maintain a thin form factor while optimizing the available free space for the patient when inside the MRI bore. These mattresses and positioners are compatible with existing tables and are designed to simply replace the current pads.

The basic system consists of two to four rectangular mattress pads covered with advanced breathable space-age waterproof material which resists staining and makes cleaning easier. A knee wedge is also included to maximize patient comfort. To increase safety, all pads have an anti-slip undersurface to keep the pads in place while patients are getting on and off the table. Also available are pressure-managing mattresses designed for use in
the CTL coil and many varieties of positioners.
