The Diamond 8 Plus is ideal for individuals with Stage I – IV pressure wounds in the coccyx and lower back area. It has a pre-set cycle time of 21 minutes. The maximum weight capacity is 650 lbs. Built-in automatic two hour battery backup in case of a power failure.
The design of the individual cells, inside the mattress, are similar to a figure 8, divided into two 4″ sections. The lower four inches remain inflated at all times. The top four inches alternate in a 3:1 pattern so that 66% of the body is constantly supported. This allows for a more stable surface.
To ensure the longevity of the control unit we recommend inspecting / cleaning the filter monthly.
