Answer

Can VENDLET be utilized with a pressure guard mattress?

YES!

We have pressure mapping of VENDLET, combined with various types of pressure-relieving mattresses. These pressure measurements unambiguously that VENDLET has no negative impact on the pressure relieving properties. 

VENDLET must be mounted with height extensions, when used with a pressure guard mattress. For VENDLET V4 and VENDLET V4+, there are height extensions of 10 cm and of 5 cm. There is another type of height extensions for  VENDLET HC-2. You can order height extensions via our order module on this website.

As with other turning systems, we recommend that the pressure guard mattress is firm during turning / handling of the patient. This provides greater comfort for the patient during the turning.
