Non-powered Pressure Redistribution Therapy with advanced shear protection to support skin integrity.
Designed with non-powered MicroFlow Fluid technology, the Rik® Fluid Mattress Overlay contains 55 enclosed segments of viscous fluid on a foam base.
When placed on the overlay, the patient’s body immerses deep into the fluid segments, which conform to the body’s contours, and body weight spreads evenly throughout the therapeutic surface. Concentrated pressure on areas where skin breakdown commonly occurs, such as bony prominences, is redistributed to help prevent pressure ulcers.
The inherent properties of MicroFlow Fluid technology help reduce skin shear. When the patient repositions, the underlying fluid moves with the patient, and shear force transfers into the overlay, away from the patient’s skin.
