Custom Care® Convertible LAL

The PressureGuard® Custom Care® Convertible LAL adds industry-leading low-air-loss microclimate management to the revolutionary Star Chamber system which provides greater air displacement and better weight distribution.

Weight Limit: 500 lbs (non-powered and alternating modes). Up to 350 lbs. (lateral rotation mode)
Warranty: Mattress - 5 years, non-prorated. Control Unit - 2 years, non-prorated
Mattress height: 7"
Mattress weight: Approximately 34 lbs. not including control unit  
Weight limit and warranty specifications for the Custom Care Convertible LAL Recessed Deck Model same as Standard Custom Care Convertible LAL.

Like the Custom Care Convertible surface, the Custom Care Convertible LAL pressure redistribution surface is designed to help clinicians provide excellent patient care on both flat deck and recessed deck frames, facility wide.  The Custom Care® Convertible LAL surface offers Span-America’s low-air-loss therapy design for maceration control.  A leading wound care journal documented its unmatched performance in the removal of excess moisture within the microclimate.* 

 

Flexibility has been designed into this next generation PressureGuard series.  Both Custom Care Convertible models, easily convert to a powered surface with the simple addition of a control unit – an approach that can save significantly on the need for costly rentals.

Span-America's exclusive Low-air-loss technology

 

The Custom Care® Convertible LAL  air delivery system features Span-America’s exclusive non-collapsible "Air Diffusion Matrix", which maximizes removal of excess moisture from the user's skin without the inherent compromises often found in typical low air loss surfaces. Moisture passes in vapor form down through the coverlet, where the continuous incoming air current within the unique "Air Diffusion Matrix" takes it away before it can re-form as liquid. 

PressureGuard® Custom Care® Convertible LAL Recessed Deck Model

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

Our engineers have developed a version of the Custom Care Convertible LAL 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.

A Therapy-ready surface for every bed 

Flexibility has been designed into this next generation PressureGuard series.  Both Custom Care Convertible models, easily convert to a powered surface with the simple addition of a control unit – an approach that can save significantly on the need for costly rentals. 

Shear induced tissue trauma

Under the downward pressure of the user’s weight, tissue is compressed in the vertical plane beneath the bony prominences, trapping the skin.  As the body moves, mechanical shearing forces are generated along the horizontal plan, causing damage deep within the tissue.

Vulnerable bony prominences

 

Without effective shear-reducing intervention, the skin and deep tissues are vulnerable to shear induced trauma at the scapula, sacrum and heels.  This is intensified when the head of bed is elevated, pushing the user toward the foot of the bed.   

Rotational Shear

Even, rotational shear, caused when the user is pivoted from the lying to sitting position or vice versa is minimized by Shear Transfer Zone technology.

LifeSpan® Fortified Healthcare Fabric

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 and cleanable and delivers outstanding resistance to chemical breakdown caused by bleach and other harsh disinfectants with its polycarbonate-fortified coating.
