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