The CircSupport™ system of gentle movement will reposition the patient 6x per hour, 12x more frequently than the prescribed minimum. An internal fan moves air under the patient to reduce moisture and heat build-up. CircSupport by Healthy Functions™ will address all four physical causes of pressure ulcers:
- Excess moisture
- Shear forces dragging against the skin
- Heat build-up
- Constant pressure
CircSupport can be utilized at home without the need for a full hospital bed. For patients with respiratory complications, the head section of CircSupport can be raised and still maintain its pressure relieving functions.
This versatile technology is applicable for beds, wheelchairs and other surfaces where people must lie to sit for long periods of time. Healthy Functions holds two patents on the CircSupport technology with a third patent in process.
