Joerns RecoverCare has introduced new ClimateCare, a mattress coverlet system that provides microclimate management.
The company has developed the system to support effective wound care and it will address the root causes of tissue breakdown through the management of temperature and moisture (microclimate) at the interface between the patient’s skin and the therapy support surface.
Joerns RecoverCare national clinical director Julia Melendez said: "Microclimate management is recognized as a key factor in optimizing the skin’s condition and avoiding the damaging effects of increased moisture and temperature on the skin.
"ClimateCare is designed to pull excess moisture and heat away from the patient’s skin to effectively manage the skin microclimate and protect it from breakdown."
ClimateCare is available in, 36, 42 and 48 widths, and is comprised of both reusable and disposable components to reduce infection control risk.
It is compatible with different therapeutic support surfaces, including the Joerns RecoverCare Dolphin Fluid Immersion Simulation (FIS) System and the P.R.O. Matt Plus.
