The Best Surface for Non-Healing Stage 3 & 4 Pressure Ulcers

Pressure is the real enemy of patients with severe pressure wounds. Air Fluidized Therapy (AFT) works by evenly distributing a patient's body weight on the bed's surface and allows their body to reach buoyancy thus significantly reducing interface pressure.

Capillary closure occurs on most individuals somewhere around 32 mm/Hg. Most patients lying on AFt beds reduce their interface pressue into the low teens allowing blood to flow again and accelerate the healing process.

Air Fluidized Therapy is Considered the Gold Standard!

  • Use this bed for patients who have shown no progress or worsen on their existing Group II bed
  • Post Flap patients
  • Patients who are experiencing significant pain from their pressure ulcers
  • Reduces shear, maceration and moisture buildup better than any other surface
  • Study shows that AFT beds reduce severe wound size 2-3 times faster versus conventional air surfaces.
