Innovation for Healthcare Mattresses!
StretchKnit SmartSheets for Profiling and Dynamic Airflow / Pressure Reduction Mattresses
StretchKnit is a knitted sheet with multi-directional stretch which, unlike conventional woven sheets, means that this one sheet will fit the vast majority of healthcare mattresses, ranging from standard profiling beds to beds with dynamic airflow / pressure reduction mattresses.
SmartSheets are constructed from a unique knitted fabric which is much softer than conventional woven sheets and therefore improves the residents comfort. SmartSheets are being used in numerous hospitals and care facilities across the world. Within the UK alone SmartSheets are now being used on over 85,000 healthcare beds, including dynamic airflow / pressure reduction mattresses.
The SmartSheet technology is recognised by major mattress manufacturers as a product which offers significant advantages compared to standard woven sheets. It is widely acknowledged that the SmartSheet does not diminish the pressure care provided by healthcare mattresses.
As well as the SmartSheet, the full StretchKnit system includes:
- StretchKnit Top Sheets
- StretchKnit SmartSheets
- StretchKnit Duvet Covers
- StretchKnit Pillow Cases
