Product Details

This Softform Premier Mattress by Invacare is a high specification replacement mattress designed to meet the demands of the Community and Acute healthcare environment. Practical and durable, this mattress delivers exceptional levels of comfort and pressure redistribution at a cost effective price.

The Softform Premier Original is suitable for those considered at 'High/Very High Risk’ of developing pressure ulcers. This makes it ideal for people who spend a lot of time in bed, such as the elderly, post-op or disabled.

A dense foam construction means that the mattress evenly distributes the weight of the user, reducing the incidence of pressure sores and aches.

The unique contoured insert pad provides excellent patient comfort and optimises pressure reduction. This insert sits in a U-shaped outer layer that facilitates patients transfer by providing effective side-wall support.

The cover is made from waterproof fabric and is stretchy. It can be removed for cleaning using the zip fastener. 

Strikethrough Resistant Technology (SRT) is available as an option on our Softform Premier mattresses. It is a polyurethane-coated specialist textile that has been developed in collaboration by Dartex and Invacare to offer unbeatable chemical and abrasion resistance for mattress covers in a medical setting.

SRT has been specifically developed to withstand the vigorous cleaning regimes in place in healthcare settings. It has been designed to swell less during cleaning, therefore reducing the risks of continuous abrasion and chemical damage to which the mattress cover is exposed to on a regular basis.

With SRT coating, the polymer structure of the polyurethane coating offers much greater resistance to chemical attack than other polyurethane coated textiles. By investing their years of expertise in coatings and PU covers, Dartex have been able to use their knowledge to produce a fabric with advanced chemical resistance, along with high abrasion resistance. This engineered coating formulation developed in the Dartex laboratories is significantly more suited to the demanding cleaning regimes which are in place to fight against hospital and nursing home acquired infections.

The durability of SRT minimises the risk of strikethrough and ensures endurance in product performance. In an environment where chemicals may not always be fully rinsed from the mattress cover and the time taken for the cover to be completely dry may be compromised, SRT provides reassurance that there will be no lasting damage.

Key User Benefits

  • The Softform Premier is a mattress focused on comfort and duration, which allows it to withstand much more weight than the others (up to 246.7kg in weight). Best of all, it does not need to be rotated or rotated to maintain its shape, which minimizes its manipulation by clinical staff. That is why the Softform Premier is one of the mattresses that combines excellent durability, with incredible patient comfort.
  • Despite being a large mattress, its total product weight does not usually exceed 14kg, allowing if it should be moved or handled, it is done without much effort.
  • Polyurethane coverage that prevents the passage of liquid into the internal part of the mattress and at the same time, the friction of the cloth with the patient's skin.
  • The top surface of the mattress tapers down at the ends to relieve pressure on the heels, which are particularly vulnerable to pressure ulcers.
  • The full length flap protects the zip. This reduces the possible risk of fluid ingress, preventing contamination of the foam core.
