Neonates are at risk of pressure damage due to the frailty and vulnerability of the epidermis layer of their skin. The Neo is one of the only surfaces available specifically designed for neonates that have been compromised and at high risk of skin breakdown. The intelligent controller registers individual patient weight to provide a reactive support surface, even for the smallest of babies.

The surface is available in two different versions; the ICU and the IW. The ICU is designed for use with all incubators such as Drager and Giraffe whereas the IW is designed for use with infant warmers. The Neo is also suitable for premature babies as the optional development ring simulates the environment of a womb, creating cradling and security.


Key Features

  • Three active zones to ensure accurate pressure redistribution for the head, body and heels. Available with an optional development ring to simulate a womb environment or to allow easy positioning.

  • Intelligent, automatic adjustment providing extremely specific pressure redistribution for even the smallest of babies.

  • The control unit can be disconnected from the surface and maintain interface pressures for up to 12 hours, allowing safe and easy transport.

  • The Neo is suitable for patients undergoing treatment such as ECMO due to the stability of the static surface.
