Innovative fluid immersion simulation technology essentially "floats" patients on a computer-regulated pad that automatically adjusts and readjusts at numerous pressure points in accordance with the unique weight and contour of each patient.
This maintains proper tissue symmetry to sustain blood flow, alleviate pressure pain, and reduce the occurance of pressure sores. As the only multi-surface pressure redistribution system, the Dolphin provides support therapy throughout the long-term care environment.
"The average ER patient spends 222 minutes laying on a stretcher. 40% are at risk for pressure wounds. Operating room procedures that last more than four hours triple the risk of tissue damage."
