The secret of perfected adaptation to the body by Vacuform® 2.0 surgical mattresses is microballs of styrofoam, which are stabilized by vacuum to give a lasting, completely suppor tive form. Only Vacuform® 2.0 contains since many years about the well proven and unique Micro-Space System an increases the feeling of physical comfort for the patient significantly compared to conventional fillings. Reducing the diameter of the filler balls by a fifth enables signifi cantly more precise adaptation of the surgical mattresses to the body.

Decubitus prophilaxis in the operating theatre
Particularly during time-consuming operations or with patients who are older and in poor condition, there is a risk of pressure points leading to acute decubital ulcers* and paresis (paralysis from nerve damage). The individual, ergonomic body adaptation of Vacuform® 2.0 surgical mattresses effectively prevents such damage. The support pressure of the patient is optimally distributed over the whole body and thus reduced to a minimum. The microcirculation needed by the skin is unaffected. The patient has a noticeable feeling of comfort, a feeling of lightness and warmth.
Safety on the operating table
- No slippage on the surgery table
- Safe immobilization
- Extreme surgery table inclination possible
- Fast, simple handling
The patient can be immobilized quickly and securely in any desired position. Thisgives the surgeon optimal access to the operation area and allows safe handling of the patient. Even the most extreme tilting of the surgery table does not change the defined position of the patient. The surgical positioning can be corrected at any time by relieving the vacuum, forming the surgical mattress to the new position of the patient and then evacuating the air again. Moreover, Vacuform® 2.0 surgical mattresses enable transport between hospitals in a defined surgical position.
Cost reduction with Vacuform® 2.0
Vacuform® 2.0 contributes to efficiency and leads to considerable cost reduction through fast, simple handling, prevention of sequelae such as decubitus and paresis, saving of additional materials, fast cleaning and long reusability even with constant use.
