Three therapy modes, one mattress system
Active air system with 3 distinct therapy modes:
Lateral tilt active therapy and pressure redistribution in 10-min cycle of gentle patient tilting resulting in micro-turns and micro-shifts of the patient. Mimics natural movement of the human body.
Alternating active therapy, pressure relieving.
Static reactive therapy, optimal immersion and envelopment.
Microclimate management
The inherent foam properties, its construction (castellations ) and the moisture-vapour permeable mattress cover all combine to help assist with microclimate management of patients’ skin.
OSKA Anti-shear
Shear management
The three anti-shear zones in the mattress cover reduce the potential for shear-related tissue injury in the vulnerable areas of the heels, sacrum/trunk, and scapula, as well as when patients are being handled or moved.
Welded seams & V-Guard technology
Delivers a cover with inherent antimicrobial properties. The strong, pliable mattress cover materials and coatings stand up to the rigorous cleaning demands of healthcare environments. OSKA’s unique Tough-Weld welded seams prevent ingress of bodily fluids into the mattress, and in combination these features support local infection prevention and control policies and practices.
OSKA Safety Edge
Patient stability and safety
The reinforced outer edge of the mattress supports patients sitting on the edge of the mattress during ingress and egress from the bed. These firm sides also help direct patients back towards the mattress centre, reducing the potential for contact with bedframe side rails.

OSKA Selector
With no clear algorithm or selection guide it can be difficult to know what mattress you should be selecting for your patients. To make this clear, OSKA has devised a system, the OSKA Selector, to help carers identify if the patient is on the correct mattress. For more information, click here.

It was like sleeping on clouds. I'm not the person I was. I could even move my legs over... I can't believe it, oh it was a miracle. I had two weeks night sleep in just three days. Watch the video here.

This lady developed a category 4 pressure ulcer and was out of her own home for 12 months. She was in and out of hospital, care homes and ultimately went to a nursing home. She became very depressed and she stopped eating…she just wanted to be in her own home. The answer was to put the Series5 lateral tilt under her. The patient is now on the way to healing her pressure ulcer. She has a quality of life back. Watch the video here.

I was first made aware of this mattress at the Hospice UK Conference last November and a trial was agreed. On delivery, full operational training was given to the staff on duty.
We undertook a successful trial on a patient who had difficulty lying in any position apart from sat upright. This was a lady who was often difficult to please and had found many other mattresses uncomfortable. We were thrilled that she was entirely happy with the lateral tilt and there was no deterioration in the status of her pressure areas. She ended up staying as an inpatient until her death.
As a result of this successful trial we purchased this mattress and have only had successful outcomes to date. I believe this to be a superb mattress for patients who are unable to change position as it can be set to accommodate the patient’s particular requirements.

We have had a great result using the Series5 lateral tilt mattress with a patient who has a spinal chord compression and lymphoedema who cannot lie on his side so is constantly on his bum sitting upright in bed or in his wheelchair.
He had been on a different mattress since admission but as time was moving on and we were now weeks and weeks in with the constant pressure on his bum it had started to break down – I then made it a priority to get him on to one of the Series5 lateral tilt mattresses asap and within 7 days we are seeing a huge improvement to his 3 broken areas which are being dressed daily and the surrounding skin is a much better colour!
I am definitely asking if I can go ahead and order more for the ward as we are having such great results with them!

The patient is largely unaware of the alternating tilt feature which is great as it avoids the feeling that they are going to fall which some other mattresses can cause. The covers being easy to launder is another great advantage and means these can be changed as and when needed without worrying about supply issues. The mattress is easy to set up; functions are clear and controls are simple and easy to use.

We use the Series5 Lateral Tilt Mattress for patients admitted with existing pressure sores in order to prevent further skin breakdown and increase the likelihood of the wound healing. The mattress itself is easy to operate and when patients are commenced on this therapy mattress wounds show signs of improvement, increase in wound granulation and circulation.
The mattress could not be used alone in my opinion. Patients still need a structured regime of nursing intervention and need to be given pressure relief through positional changes. In summary the mattress, combined with good nursing care, produces improvement in wound healing.
I found the mattress easy to operate. Its purpose is to prevent further breakdown and give constant pressure relief to patients with existing pressure sores. I have seen an improvement in wound healing when this mattress is used along with good nursing intervention.

Both ourselves and the Nursing Home have found the laeral tilt mattress to be a great asset for our son, Craig. He is sleeping more soundly with the motion of the mattress. His previous air mattress was more like a solid bed than an air mattress. His skin is in perfect condition with no sign of any pressure sores or reddening of any parts of his body. We would recommend this product to anyone.
Paul Gascoigne, Purchased for his son who had no movement following a stroke
We have had the Series5 lateral tilt mattress on loan for over a month now. On receiving the mattress a patient was chosen who was admitted with a category 2 sacral pressure ulcer. The only position she could get comfortable was on her back, she was in a great deal of pain if she moved so spent most of her time on her back, sat up in bed.
The staff felt that her pressure ulcer would have deteriorated and become a higher category, but this did not happen. The pressure ulcer improved whilst on the mattress.

We are using the mattress successfully at the moment on a patient who has pain in his joints and severe allodynia and numerous deep wounds on his body. He is really difficult to move and without the mattress it could take up to four staff to safely re-position him. The mattress ensures he feels comfortable and safe and can be moved with two staff, with minimum painful turning.
