The AirPod is a lateral transfer device, which relieves 90% of the patient’s weight - saving time and effort while reducing the risk of injury to patient and caregiver. Air is blown into the mattress by an external pump and forced out through perforations in the base. This allows the mattress to lift or hover reducing the amount of friction between the mattress and the lying surface. AirPod offers superior strength and infection control with 100% high frequency welded construction. Technically, the most advanced air-assisted lateral transfer and repositioning system in the world, the AirPod construction offers maximum stability through it’s Pod technology. These act as suckers to prevent the mattress from sliding when deflated – up to tilt of 25°.
