Products Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner

Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner

The Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner is a 3 cell-cycle, alternating pressure mattress replacement featuring Head and Heel Zoner Selectors for advanced healing and prevention of pressure injuries and is an ideal solution for individualised care of patients with critical care needs.

The clinically proven 3-cell 7 ½ minute cycle of the Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner stimulates reactive hyperaemia and promotes blood and lymph flow in the deep tissues surrounding the vulnerable bony prominences which maintains tissue viability in bed confined individuals.

Head and Heel Zoner selectors

Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner is an ideal solution for the prevention and treatment of difficult to treat head and heel injuries as it features dedicated Head and Heel Zones with the ability to select modes for individual cells (Alternating, Static or Deflated).

The Head Zoner provides the choice of alternating or static modes to suit the needs of your patient. Also cell deflation function supports specialist or day to day procedures such as intubation or hair washing.

Thanks to the Head Zoner it is possible to place the patient in the prone position, which is comfortable. It is used in connection with pulmonary pathology in severe acute respiratory distress syndrome (severe ARDS).

The heel zoner is a selective deflation feature to maximise pressure elimination in the very high risk area of the patients heels. It also aides muscle flexing to help prevent ‘heel drop’ in highly immobile patients.

True MicroClimate Management (MCM)

The Dartex cover of the Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner features true MicroClimate Management (MCM) with a Moisture Vapour Transmission Rate (MVTR) of 1028g/m2/24hr which ensures it is highly breathable to allow a vapour exchange between the top and bottom side of the cover material.

The MCM feature helps to manage the heat and humidity of a patient’s skin in order to help prevent or assist in the treatment of tissue damage related to moisture on the skin. The superior mattress design and cover ensures that air circulates under the patient body to enable air movement and moisture removal. MCM runs separately to the alternating cycle ensuring that the clinical efficacy and zero pressure therapy are maintained.

Automatic features to enhance patient care

Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner has been designed with nursing staff efficiency in mind with a number of automatic features that will reduce nurse workload such as auto-adjustment to patient weight and position, Advanced Auto-Fowler Boost mode and auto-return to alternating from Max Inflate.

Advanced safety and comfort

Virtuoso Head & Heel Zoner provides a range of features that are designed to ensure patient safety comfort whilst ensuring nursing staff efficiency. These include easy access CPR on pump, integrated side formers, timed safety lockout control panel, comfort control adjustment, cable management system and 24 hour transport mode.

Pressure Elimination Technology Stimulates reactive hyperaemia and promotes blood and lymph flow in deep tissue.
3-cell 7 ½ minute cycle Eliminates pressure completely every 2½ minutes. This process has been designed to replicate the body’s natural spontaneous movement, therefore enhancing comfort and pressure relief.
True MicroClimate Management Helps to manage the heat and humidity of a patient’s skin in order to help prevent or assist in the treatment of tissue damage related to moisture on the skin.
Head and Heel Zoner selectors Provides advanced options for individualised patient care with the option to selectively off-load heel or head area.
Auto-adjustment Automatically adjusts pressure settings in response to patient weight and position to optimise pressure relief and ensure that staff are not burdened with difficult product set-up.
Advanced Fowler Boost mode Automatically detects when the backrest has been raised and provides increased support and protection from ‘bottoming-out’.
Auto-timed Max Inflate mode Provides a firm and stable surface for essential nursing procedures such as physiotherapy and wound cleaning. A safety automatic return to Alternating Therapy mode after 30 minutes ensures that patients are not put at risk of pressure damage.
Constant Low Pressure (CLP) mode Automatically maintains the selected pressure regardless of changes in the patient’s weight distribution or position to achieve constant levels of the pressure redistribution.
Comfort control Allows for patient specific adjustment for a softer or firmer surface improving comfort without compromising performance.
Ultrasonically welded cell structure All cells in each layer are ultrasonically welded together to eliminate air cell encroachment and allow each deflating cell to efficiently retract away from body contact.
Easily accessible CPR facility Intuitive, always visible and accessible CPR activation located directly on the pump provides rapid deflation in approx. 10 seconds.
Integral side formers Permanently inflated side formers provide a firm mattress edge to ensure patient stabilisation and fall prevention (NSQHS standard 10) during exits or transferring to a trolley/chair.
24-hour Transport mode Easy to operate one way valve lets mattress remain inflated for at least 24 hours and also facilitates patient/bed movement without unnecessary risk to patient.
Audible and visual alarms A sophisticated set of audible and visual alarm functions provide enhanced patient safety and ensures peace of mind for nursing staff.
Timed safety control panel lockout Safety automatic lock out and unlock ‘GO’ button enhances patient safety and reduces user error.
Cable management system Convenient power cable storage to ensure safety by preventing it becoming a trip hazard and also avoid cable damage.
Dartex cover with welded seams Soft, easy to clean, waterproof Dartex cover provides a complete barrier against viruses and blood, minimising infection control risks.
Unique anti-hammocking cover Unique pre-ensioned design ensures that the cover conforms tightly to the cell shape thereby eliminating hammocking across the deflated cell and optimising the zero pressure phase of the cycle.
Battery back-up (optional) Ensures patient can continue to receive alternating therapy in the event of a power failure or during patient transport. This feature provides 6 hours back-up.
