Dolphin Therapy Extra-Wide

Dolphin Therapy extra-wide, suitable for bariatric beds, is the ideal choice of surface for complex and difficult-to-manage plus-size patients.

Page Sections

Dolphin Therapy is a reactive mattress system that creates a simulated fluid environment, enabling full immersion and envelopment, significantly reducing pressure, shear and tissue deformation.

Indications for use:

  • Patients who otherwise would be suitable for air fluidised therapy and would be most frequently used in the care of patients within intensive care, burns and plastics, vascular surgery and trauma & orthopaedic units.
  • Patients with pressure related tissue damage and those undergoing flap surgery for pressure ulcer repair.
  • Prevention of skin breakdown in the most vulnerable of patients including spinal cord injury where the spine has been stabilised.
  • Pain management, including end-of-life care.
  • Where repositioning is challenging, for example for patients in ICU/CCU.
  • Patients who are non-concordant with repositioning.
Key Features

Tissue symmetry is maintained, meaning tissues are not squashed or distorted.

Vascular occlusion is minimised, maintaining near normal blood flow.

Tissue ischemia is prevented, even when the patient is nursed directly on the affected area.

1,000+ UK & Ireland positive clinical patient outcomes achieved.
