Ideal for Specialty Procedures
The HoverMatt® Half-Matt, a shorter version of our original transfer mattress, is ideal for use during cystoscopy, labor and delivery and other gynecological or urological procedures. At 45″ long, the HoverMatt Half-Matt ends right below the buttocks and is effective but unobtrusive. (Patent No. US 6073291)
The HoverMatt Half-Matt is available in a Single-Patient Use version or with a double-coated finish, for use when there are excessive bodily fluids.
By virtually eliminating injuries related to lateral transfers and positioning, the HoverMatt SPU significantly helps to improve staff satisfaction and retention, while reducing direct and indirect workers’ compensation costs. The HoverMatt SPU also provides patients with a more comfortable and dignified experience as it eliminates friction and reduces skin shear, improving patient satisfaction.
Benefits of the HoverMatt Half-Matt:
- Air-assisted technology reduces force required to move patient by 80-90%, requiring fewer caregivers for improved staff efficiency, safety and comfort during transfers
- Inflated mattress cradles the patient while moving them in a stable position, eliminating friction and reducing skin shear while providing maximum comfort to the patient
- Highly breathable fabric allows for greater moisture vapor exchange to promote the ideal microclimate and support pressure injury prevention
- Shorter length accommodates specialty tables for convenience and improved efficiency
- Single-patient use model eliminates costs and logistics associated with laundering and greatly reduces risk of cross-contamination
- Radiolucent and MRI compatible for artifact-free imaging
- 600 lb weight limit to accommodate most patients
- HT-Air® air supply (sold separately) provides a variable speed airflow safety feature that allows caregivers to check patient’s position before full inflation, while providing a quieter and more gradual inflation for sensitive or anxious patients and those in pain
- Supports Safe Patient Handling recommendations and guidelines for increased healthcare worker safety from OSHA, AORN, NAON, NIOSH and ANA
