Patient comfort is our number one concern and we only carry products that support patient health and comfort, that includes the EMP Conform air-filled insert support pad. Essential Medical Supplies has been supplying this support pad in Canada for about 10 years.
This specialty mattress pad provides a low-pressure surface and is commonly used with foam mattresses under areas where the patient is at higher risk of developing sores when laying down.
Airflow is also an important consideration. When you compare this air-filled insert support pad with moisture-proof foam mattresses, the air-filled insert provides better air-flow opportunities around areas of at-risk skin.
In our 10 years of recommending these air-filled inserts for patients, our customers say that the surface feels more stable, compared to other air-filled support products they’ve tried. They also love how you can connect multiple pads together seamlessly. Where other comparable products are joined with “snap” connectors and cause stress and damage at the pad joints, the Conform air-filled pads are joined using a flexible strip of holes where the air-filled cells are inserted. This provides a strong, continuous joint.
Repair and Care
We think you’ll also love how easy they are to maintain and fix if a cell is punctured and leaks. In performing our due diligence on this product before bringing it into our inventory, we used a standard bicycle tire repair patch kit to seal a punctured cell and it worked perfectly.
The pad is made of natural rubber and should not be exposed to UV light, or it wilal result in premature ageing of the material. Keep it away from liquids and skin creams too. Should it get dirty, the Conform Air can be easily disinfected with commonly used disinfecting sprays or wipes
