Grande Armadilo


  • WHAT IS THE GRANDE ARMADILO?

    The main function of the STABILO GRANDE is stabilisation. It is used to ensure correct body posture. The mattress is suitable for  patients who must be positioned prone or supine for extended periods and allows easy transitions between supine and upright postures.

    The GRANDE ARMADILLO is a new pressure-relief, comfortable body positioning mattress. GRANDE ARMADILLO is designed to:

    • Reduce pressure provide relief for sensitive areas – enabling the user to be securely wrapped in the larger mattress surface ensuring equal distribution of body weight over a larger surface area, reducing pressure per cubic centimetre
    • Improve blood circulation – the alternating inflation and deflation of mattress chambers ensure perfect body support, forcing blood to be pumped to other areas of the body which are not supported at that moment. This optimises metabolism by increasing blood flow and ensuring an adequate blood supply to tissues, successfully preventing pressure sores
    • Provide comfort – securing optimal body posture. Excellent mechano-therapy effects due to unique body massage reducing painful muscle tone, joint stiffness and pain and brings relief to large capillary areas
    • Facilitate body thermoregulation – an elevated body temperature leads to increased perspiration which may cause bed sores. The GRANDE ARMADILLO mattress re-oxygenates the skin, facilitating an improved microclimate for the patient. Skin temperature is maintained at low levels, controlling perspiration and maceration. The pump system permits a high volume of room-temperature air exchange through the mattress chambers. This air absorbs heat from the patient's body and is exchanged for cooler air, enabling continuous cooling of the skin surface, greatly facilitating therapy
    • Easy-care mattress – does not require frequent changes to body position but successfully eliminates the risk of sensitive skin and pressure sores 
    • Ensure maximum patient hygiene

    DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND MODE OF ACTION

    The alternating pressure technology gives best results in bed sore prevention, allowing shifting of supported areas and pressure levels.

    The ARMADILO SYSTEM consists of:
    A. STABILO GRANDE
    B. Pressure-relief insert
    C. MembraMED cover

    SUITABLE FOR

    • People with medical conditions and disabilities that prevent supine or prone positions
    • Bedridden patients ensuring bed and pressure sore prevention
    • People with severe postural deformities for stable and comfortable support

    MODE OF ACTION

    • Creates a niche (allowing patient to be held securely in place)
    • Deep and accurate adhesion of mattress thanks to the size, granule volume and large surface area
    • Provides stability during exercises

    DESIGNED FOR

    • Stand-alone seats
    • Use as a seat insert
    • Use as a mattress for lying down
    • Consolidating rehabilitation and physiotherapy outcomes
    • Use in rehabilitation and physiotherapy exercises in prone positions     

    The pump alternatingly inflates and deflates the mattress providing perfect, varying support to the entire body, successfully preventing bed and pressure sores. Maximum comfort at every setting (soft and hard). Ensures continuously massage, maximising therapeutic effects.

    Mattress surface temperature remains at room temperature (allowing for mattress surface temperature to remain at approx. 23°C instead of 36.6°C (body temperature).

    DOUBLE-SECTION MATTRESS WORKS IN 4 PHASES:
    PHASE 1.
    Time 00 min.
    inflation of all chambers

    PHASE 2.
    Time 02 min. after
    deflation of every second chamber

    PHASE 3.
    Time 02 min after
    inflation of all chambers

    PHASE 4.
    Time 02 min. after
    deflation of chambers inflated to date

  • SUITABLE FOR

    • Patients with pressure sores or at risk of developing pressure sores
    • Bedridden patients
    • Patients with poor blood circulation

    MODE OF ACTION

    • Supports and relieves pressure and conforms to varying body weights
    • Promotes healthy blood circulation
    • Lowers mattress surface temperature from body temperature to optimum room temp. (approx. 23 °C)

    INDICATIONS FOR USE

    It can be used as an insert to place on a mattress for supine positions:

    • At home
    • In hospital
    • In rehabilitation centres
