Custom Care®

Reactive Pressure Redistribution Surface

Span-America’s PressureGuard® Custom Care® surface—based on a long line of innovations—means improved therapy for those you care for.  

This model is a non-convertible surface in the Custom Care® series which includes the Custom Care® Convertible and the Custom Care® Convertible LAL models.   The Custom Care® surface incorporates the cover and outer shell design innovations found in the convertible series, but with a support cylinder design similar to typical non-powered reactive systems. 

The cover’s enhanced features include the unique design of the anti-microbial bi-directional stretch cover made with Span’s superior LifeSpan® fabric.  

LifeSpan® is extremely durable andcleanable and delivers outstanding resistance to chemical breakdown caused by bleach and other harsh disinfectants with its polycarbonate-fortified coating.

PressureGuard® Custom Care® provides effective, non-powered pressure redistribution through its outstanding combination of a zoned, shear-reducing, engineered outer shell surrounding a reactive support chamber system. 

Custom Care’s unique Metered Immersion™ design reacts to changes in surface loading through a series of interconnected longitudinal support chambers.  As the user moves or repositions on the surface, the chambers below react in concert—deflecting, transferring air, and venting—in relation to the user’s weight and position. The result is a blend of pressure management, shear reduction, comfort, and ease of operation not achievable with other non-powered systems.

PressureGuard® Custom Care® Recessed Deck Model

The introduction of recessed deck versions of selected Span surfaces, including the Custom Care, brings our advanced technology to recessed deck beds.   

Our engineers have developed a version of the Custom Care surface to accommodate the unique design requirements of recessed deck beds.  V-shaped edges enable the mattress to fit the recessed deck bedframe, while the compressible section accommodates multiple lengths and foot positions.

Patented design creates an inner bolster “cradle” effect for added safety when the patient sits on or moves toward the bed edge.  This protective feature helps direct the patient’s center of gravity safely back toward the center of the bed.   Two sturdy fabric handles improve relocation ergonomics.  Visit the recessed deck surfaces page.

Custom Care® Hospice

 

Overwhelmingly preferred by caregivers and patients in multi-hospice trials:   

      “Because of factors known collectively as ‘skin failure’, skin integrity for end-of-life patients is often compromised. Therefore, wound healing is not always possible. In many cases, a more realistic goal for hospice providers is to maximize comfort and restful sleep while minimizing shear‐induced damage to weakened, friable skin. A newly developed, specialized support surface [PressureGuard Custom Care, from Span-America] was evaluated in seven hospice organizations. The surface was found superior in both comfort and prevention of further damage to skin integrity as compared to the powered and non‐powered surfaces typically available to hospice care providers.” 

---Abstract from Addressing Skin Failure Through Support Surface Selection in Hospice Care: Preserving Skin Integrity while Maximizing Comfort

Custom Care:  Better Surface.  Better Care.

Span America's newest non-powered air-based treatment surface - the PressureGuard Custom Care – gives hospice providers a premium, easy-to-use alternative to alternating pressure pads and other surface 'upgrades'.

The Custom Care’s unique Metered Immersion™ design reacts to changes in surface loading through a series of interconnected longitudinal support chambers.  As the user moves or repositions on the surface, the chambers below react in concert—deflecting, transferring air, and venting—in relation to the user’s weight and position. The result is a blend of pressure management, shear reduction, comfort, and ease of operation not achievable with other non-powered systems.   

The cover’s enhanced features include the unique design of the anti-microbial bi-directional stretch cover made with Span’s superior LifeSpan® fabric. 

LifeSpan® is extremely durable andcleanable and delivers outstanding resistance to chemical breakdown caused by bleach and other harsh disinfectants with its polycarbonate-fortified coating.   

Its proprietary Shear Transfer Zone™ cover design creates shear-minimizing bands beneath heels, sacrum and scapula to help “glide” user to original position after elevated head of bed is lowered. By doing so, it greatly reduces the potential for skin tearing and caregiver injury caused by sliding the user back up into position.

Additional Custom Care advantages:

- maintenance-free support chambers which require no adjustment or refilling

- cost-effective alternative to expensive surface rentals

- outstanding comfort and stability

- superior patient safety design

- no initial set-up required

- protected by 5-year non-prorated warranty

- supports up to 500 lbs.
