The Active Mobilisation System (AMS) is a mattress enabling automated, pain-free repositioning of residents, particularly if they reject manual repositioning by nurses, e.g. if they are suffering from pain, dementia, delirium, restlessness or aggressiveness.
Especially at night, a large proportion of nurses’ time must be spent in repositioning people at risk of pressure ulcers. However, certain residents refuse the repositioning, which is required every two to three hours.
How does the AMS mattress work?
The Active Mobilisation System is based on a mattress with normal lying characteristics. The mattress is supported by patented, active high-tech modules, with which your residents are continuously repositioned, barely perceptibly, from a position slightly on one side (turn of up to 20°) to the other side. Due to its’ unique operating principle combining local pressure relief and turning, the AMS is gentle on the resident, improving their sleep quality and thus their general well-being considerably. Due to the reactive foam mattress the body perception and self-mobility of your residents are maintained.
Residents suffering from dementia can thus feel their body and are more comfortable.
