Skin IQ Microclimate Manager

ArjoHuntleigh's Skin IQ® Microclimate Manager (MCM) is a fluid resistant, vapor permeable, single patient use mattress cover for use with a pressure redistribution surface to help prevent and treat Stage I-IV pressure ulcers.

Powered by Negative Airflow Technology (NAT), Skin IQ MCM continually draws away excess moisture from the skin/surface interface and helps control skin temperature.

Effective and comfortable for patients

  • With an outstanding Moisture Vapour Transfer Rate (MVTR) of 130 (g/m2)/hr(1), Skin IQ is more effective in microclimate management than conventional Low Air Loss (LAL) surfaces, which have an average MVTR of 97.7 (g/m2)/hr(2).
  • Helps reduce shear and friction(3).
  • Helps improve patient comfort: in a study of 16 healthy participants using Skin IQ MCM on a pressure redistribution surface, it significantly improved the level of comfort(2).

Effective for healthcare providers

  • Skin IQ can be stored in the facility for early intervention, which may help reduce the length of stay(4).
  • Easy to use, with quick, intuitive set up and maintenance.
  • Helps facilitate patient bed ingress and egress with a low, thin profile design (1/4" thick mattress cover).
