In early 2021, IMT will be expanding our product portfolio to evolve surgical table mattress designs needed to meet the rigors of today's surgical care. We look forward to introducing our new patent pending PneumaFOM® technology into the surgical and healthcare patient care bedding space!
Evolving Surgical Mattress support and construction!
Physics and Physiology in Motion!
Common mattresses used in today’s operating rooms get firmer in cooler environments. This phenomenon is due to physical and chemical changes within the memory foam’s viscoelastic gel structure. We call this temperature/pressure dependent gradient the “Glass transition phase”.
These physical changes in viscosity require direct warming from the patient's contact with the mattress to optimize pressure reduction and support. Unfortunately, this required relationship is further impeded by the common use of products placed between the mattress and the patient, as these interupt vital conductive heat transfer.
Today's memory foams only absorb pressure, they do not have the indentation force deflection (IFD) qualities needed to provide rebound support for optimized pressure management.
Our new PneumaFOM® technology combines the benefits of memory foam and adds force deflection needed for rebound support. It is temperature stable from 0-100 degrees Fahrenheit.
The quality outer coverings used on all our comfort mattress lines have a thread oversewn seam to reinforce the heat welded bonds typically used during commodity mattress constructions, this improves durability, as most mattresses seem to tear easily over a relative short period of time. Our methods stand up to the rigors of gravity dependent fabric shearing common to Trendelenburg and lateral rotations needed for today's surgical care.
The underside of our mattresses will provide an enhanced friction coefficient needed to reinforce the Velcro® strips commonly used to hold the mattress topper to the table. This provides enhanced stability needed to keep the mattress and in the patient from sliding.
