Air Fluidisation The Principle

A patient is kept floating on a mass of micro-spherical glass beads which are pressurised by a conditioned airflow. The resulting support medium can be characterized as a “dry fluid”.


The surface of the glass beads are separated from the patient by a generously proportioned filter sheet that allows the patient to “float” freely.


The principle creates careful spreading and support of each patient’s bodyweight, which results in minimum interface pressure, below capillary level.
