The Stage IV 3000 Bariatric
Multi-Zoned Pressure Relief System.
Many competitive Low Air Loss products use
perforated mattress air cells to achieve "low air loss". Medline's
Stage IV and TheraTurn systems can provide Controlled Low Air Loss (C.A.L)
without perforated air cells. Our patented process delivers improved air
circulation to the patient to help prevent heat and moisture build-up on the
skin. If necessary, the caregiver has the ability to turn off the C.A.L.
therapy with one touch of the control pad. Best of all, our C.A.L. therapy can
be altered independently of the Alternating Pressure Therapy. Since the air
cells of our Stage IV and TheraTurn products are not perforated, they remain
fully inflated during patient transport or in case of a power outage.
Advanced technology provides improved therapy
and ease of operation. Our patented Controlled Air Loss (C.A.L.) delivers
improved air circulation to the patient, reducing heat and moisture build-up
on their skin to prevent tissue breakdown. The use of superior materials in
our mattress coverlets also helps to reduce the risk of skin shear. Our
whisper quiet air pumps provide the proper therapy while maintaining a
pleasant healing environment.
State of the art electronics assure the
selected pressure therapy is delivered to the patient. the use of alternating
inflated and deflated cells provides our superior pressure therapy. As cells
are deflated, pressure reduces to zero in those areas while support of the
patient is maintained by inflating alternating cells. In the event of power
failure, air is "locked" in our inflated cells for up to 24 hours
providing greater patient safety. Most competitive products use perforated air
cells, which will deflate when power is lost. Superior therapy and worry-free
operation is the hallmark of every Medline product.
The Stage IV 3000 has three pressure zones for
maximum patient comfort and therapy. These three pressure zones; the head,
trunk, and foot sections, can all be individually customized. Ideal for
patients with advanced stages of pressure wounds, the Stage IV 3000 offers
more aggressive therapies by combining Pressure Relief and Patented Controlled
Air Loss (C.A.L.). C.A.L. is the only low air loss patented to reach the
The Stage IV 3000 has many modes including
firm/transfer, air flotation, and rapid deflation. It features alternating
pressure relief to zero pressure modes and has digital displays of actual
pressures. The bed includes an integrated 2" foam mattress below a
zippered, sealed system with 18 interchangeable air cells (6.5" cell
height). It can automate settings based on individual patient weight and
height and supports patients weighing up to 1,000 lbs.
