Infection Control

The entire mattress cell system (excluding foam base) and cover can be completely removed and laundered up to 80°C to aid decontamination protocols. The multi stretch PU cover is waterproof, vapour permeable and impregnated with Acti-fresh biocide to help prevent the build up of bacteria and ensure it can be easily cleaned to aid disinfection protocols.

White inner substrate (underside of the cover) helps auditing procedures by making staining easy to identify. The simple tactile control panel can be easily wiped clean to ensure there is no harbouring of pathogens unlike traditional dials and switched.

Low Air Loss Therapy

The build up of excess heat and moisture weakens the skin and can lead to skin breakdown; Low air loss therapy provides a controlled micro-climate for the patient that is both cool and dry, helping to maintain skin integrity and reduce the risk of developing pressure ulcers. Low Air Loss therapy also provides an alternative treatment to enhance comfort for patients who cannot tolerate an alternating system.

Controlled Microclimate

Specialist air vent holes in each cell provide maximum air circulation between the patient and the mattress.Three differential pressure zones in the head, torso and foot sections maximise the body contact area and help to reduce the peak pressure around the vulnerable bony prominences.

Ease of Use

Automatic semi-recumbent (fowler) setting built in to the pump unit automatically recognises when a patient is sitting up and adjusts the pressure around lower body to accommodate this. The Max firm mode allows the carer time to position and prepare the patient on the support surface. Auto lock out function prevents any unauthorised setting changes to the pump unit. Easy access and simple to use CPR facility via the pump unit allows rapid deflation of the mattress within 12 seconds to aid emergency procedures. Vacuum storage mode allows for quick and easy storage within 5 minutes.

Service and Maintenance

Audible and visual alarms alert the career in dual format if the system encounters a power failure or low pressure problem. Easy access air filters help prolong the life and reliability of the pump unit. Independent cell construction means that all parts i.e. cover, cells, tubing can be replaced to save ongoing maintenance costs.

VAT relief on products and services for disabled people

VAT is a tax that you pay as a consumer when you buy goods and services in the European Union (EU), including the United Kingdom. In the UK the standard rate for VAT is 20 per cent.

Disabled people don't have to pay VAT when they buy equipment that has been designed solely for disabled people, or on the adaptation of equipment so they can use it.

Also, VAT is not charged on certain services provided to disabled people, including some building work to adapt a disabled person's home and the hire of disability equipment like wheelchairs.

Goods and services on which you don't have to pay VAT are often referred to as 'zero-rated' or 'eligible for VAT relief'. In other words, the rate of VAT that is charged on them is zero.

The rules about VAT reliefs for disabled people are complex. Not everything that is supplied to disabled people is zero-rated for VAT.

Who is eligible for VAT relief

VAT law states that you must be 'chronically sick or disabled' to qualify for VAT relief.

A person is 'chronically sick or disabled' if they:

  • Have a physical or mental impairment that has a long-term and severe effect on their ability to carry out everyday activities
  • Have a condition that doctors treat as a chronic sickness (like diabetes, for example) or are terminally ill

A person with a temporary injury like a broken leg would not qualify, nor would a frail older person who was otherwise well and non-disabled.

A product or service must also be supplied for the 'personal or domestic use' of a chronically sick or disabled person to qualify for zero-rating. Things not covered by this include:

  • Products and services used for business purposes
  • Products made widely available for a group of people to use
  • Products and services supplied to people who are staying or living in a hospital or nursing home, as part of their medical or surgical treatment or with any form of care

Products that are eligible for VAT relief

Some examples of products that are zero-rated for VAT are:

  • Wheelchairs
  • Some medical and surgical appliances - like artificial limbs, for example electrically or mechanically adjustable beds chair or stair lifts
  • Computer software or hardware designed specifically for disabled people
  • Gadgets and devices that are designed solely to make everyday tasks easier for disabled people, like kettle tippers vehicles that have been adapted for use by a disabled wheelchair or stretcher user

Services that are eligible for VAT relief

Services that are eligible for zero-rating include:

  • The servicing, maintenance and installation of disability equipment
  • Adaptation work on equipment or appliances so a disabled person can use them
  • Some building alterations to a disabled person's home
  • The hire of qualifying disability equipment

Motor vehicles

If you are a wheelchair or stretcher user, you should not have to pay VAT when you buy a motor vehicle that has been substantially and permanently adapted for your personal use. A wheelchair user is defined as anyone who has to use a wheelchair - powered or manual - in order to be mobile.

Any adaptation work that is done on an unadapted vehicle to make it suitable for a disabled person's condition, whether or not that person is a wheelchair user, is also eligible for zero-rating. However, there is no VAT relief on the purchase of an unadapted vehicle.

For more information, read the notice 'Motor vehicles for disabled people' on the HM Revenue & Customs website.

Equipment How VAT reliefs work

Before you pay for any product or service, check that it qualifies for zero-rating and that the supplier is registered for VAT.

When you buy a zero-rated product or service, you may have to sign a form declaring that you have a chronic illness or disability and what it is. You must also declare that the product or service is for your own 'personal or domestic use'. The supplier should have copies of this form.

You can then buy the product or service at a price that excludes VAT. You don't have to pay VAT and then reclaim it from the government - it will be taken off the purchase price before you pay.

You can find an example of the declaration form in the 'VAT reliefs for disabled people' notice on the HM Revenue & Customs website.
