Serene Mattress (Alternating Care Mattress) – True Low Air Loss & Alternating Air Pressure Redistribution Mattress System
Dual Modes – The Ultimate Solution
Antimicrobial Protection via APEX Silver+ Stretch Cover
Infection in a pressure ulcer can delay healing and may lead to other complications of pressure ulcers including pain, depression and death. Apex has carefully listened to the challenges posed by medical care environments, and proposes the new Silver+ Stretch cover. The cover is vapour permeable and water resistant and is working effectively against MRSA with its permanently silver-ion treated fabric.
It kills 99.5% of the germs even after 40 cycles of high temperature washing (95). The cover has passed cytotoxicity, irritation and sensitisation tests. It also conforms to BS 7175, source 5 for the high flame retardant standard. The Silver+ Stretch cover reduces the bioburden in the patient’s environment, and helps with the cross-infection control.
True low air loss and alternating replacement system
SERENE mattress system is a low air loss system that combines true low air loss and dynamic alternating pressure together. Patients no longer have to sacrifice one therapy for another.
With large air flow and a moisture vapour permeable Silver+ Stretch cover, the system can reduce the risk of infection and prevent maceration and moisture build-up, ensuring a patient will receive comfortable and high quality nursing care. SERENE has user-friendly controls, with quick and easy set-up, which makes the system ideal for use in the institutional and home environments.
Pressure redistribution through process of immersion. Redistributing body mass over a greater surface with pressure lower than alternating mode.
Avoids long term pressurisation. 1-in-2 alternating cell cycle achieves periodic pressure relief.
Encourages body circulation. Periodically increases and decreases the whole mattress every 15 seconds to encourage lymph and blood flow for increased oxygenation.
Seat inflate mode + static mode
For stable support in seating position. Support with additional pressure to redistribute pressure
centralised at sacrum area and avoid excessive sinking while sitting.

Adjustable alternating pressure mattress system
The system achieves periodic pressure removal by deflating half of the air cells, to mimic the change of position or posture. The effect causes the blood vessels to open fully rather than half close, and thus virtually guarantees blood flow. With a 1- in – 2 cell cycle, such sufficiently long period of pressure relief allows tissue oxygen to recover to the ‘normal’ level.
‘TRUE’ low air loss
The system attempts to address the areas of high contact pressure, such as those of bony prominences, by redistributing the body mass over a greater surface area. As the therapeutic support surface is softened and more of the body comes into contact, the mass is redistributed more evenly, resulting in a decrease in contact pressure.
