Softform Premier Active 2 RX

The Invacare Softform Premier Active 2 RX is a clinically proven hybrid therapy mattress system which provides a dual support surface for all pressure redistributing needs.

The foam mattress when combined with the Active 2 RX power unit is effective for prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. The mattress along with the power unit is a dynamic therapeutic support surface, offering additional levels of pressure redistribution as the air flow transforms the Softform from a static foam mattress into an alternating pressure relief system. This mattress offers a complete patient centric solution to the patient.

Support for those at Very High Risk of pressure ulcers.

Our high specification foam interface offers a comfortable and effective pressure redistributing surface for patients at 'Very High Risk'* of developing pressure ulcers, and for those with superficial skin damage.

Hybrid Technology

The mattress offers specifically cut castellated foam for effective pressure redistribution with air cells beneath to provide enhanced therapy.  With the addition of the power unit, therapy can be enhanced for patients with severe pressure ulcers without compromising on comfort. The RX power unit allows for therapy to be quickly stepped-up or down, dependent on the patient needs.

The bow-shaped air cells alternate beneath the patient relieving pressure from vulnerable bony prominences and is suitable for all patient groups.

Features and options

The Softform Premier Active 2 RX mattress offers an innovative glide mechanism, which significantly reduces shear forces when used with an electric profiling bed which are a major contributing factor in the development of pressure ulcers (EPUAP Clinical Practice Guidelines, 2014).
