The Matrix is an advanced skin protection cushion made with premium, medical-grade component parts to safely heal wounds and protect fragile skin.
The Matrix is proven to be as efficacious as air cushions without the required daily maintenance of inflating and adjusting. Ideal for skilled nursing facilities and hospitals – it simply works, every time.
The Matrix meets the strictest state and federal regulations, including CA 133 fire code.
|Advanced, Medical-Grade, Skin Protection
|Pressure Redistribution||Premium, medical-grade gel polymer core redistributes weight through the femurs and away from bony prominences to manage pressure and provide stability and support|
|Shear Reduction||Dynamic surface provides lateral adaptability that responds quickly to weight shifting, reducing shear risk|
|Ventilation||Surface is 80% air creating excellent ventilation that regulates surface temperature and humidity to mitigate skin maceration|
|Infection Control||Premium, medical-grade Dartex fabric is specifically engineered for infection control; ultrasonically welded seams prevent fluid ingress and contamination|
“The Matrix products are
simply great skin protection
products. They are very straight
forward and simple to use, so they
work well on the floor. I have worked in long
term care for many years and these
are some of the best cushions that I have

|Common Diagnoses Associated with Pressure Injury Risk|
| Intrinsic Causes of Pressure Injuries
|Pressure Injury or History of Pressure Injuries||
Inability to Weight Shift
Low Sitting Tolerance
|Skin at Risk for Shear/Maceration||
|Matrix Treats the Underlying Cause of Common Survey TAGs in SNFs
|Ensure the resident does not develop pressure injury unless clinically unavoidable; The Matrix has been used in the care plans of patients who have had S1-S4 and unstageable pressure injuries. If your patient has a pressure injury, please call for support to review considerations for the proper fit and function of this seating intervention.|
|Ensure that pain management is provided consistent with professional standards of practice, and the resident’s goals and preferences. The Matrix often treats the underlying cause of pain and mitigates further use of pain medications; this dovetails with Tag F757 (unnecessary drugs) and Tag F758 (psychotropic drugs).|
Quality of Life
|The Matrix creates a stable, comfortable platform for living and enables the user to enjoy longer sitting time resulting in participation in activities that they otherwise would have missed.|
