Composite Pad Extends Patient Protection

The 30-inch wide Action G2 Bariatric Pad is tested clinically effective to 500 pounds. The Shear Smart surface of Akton dry polymer protects skin integrity by reducing shear while the high-density viscofoam base immerses the patient to improve pressure reduction. The low-profile design also improves patient stability and surgeon access. Three-, five- and six-piece sets are sold with a one-year warranty.
