Hill-Rom® P500 Therapy Surface Introduced for Use With Most Flat Deck Bed Systems

BATESVILLE, Ind., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Hill-Rom (NYSE: HRC) today announced the introduction of the Hill-Rom® P500 Therapy Surface with sophisticated treatment features and added versatility, now making it compatible with most flat deck bed systems.

"Our customers have been very pleased with our P500 Therapy Surfaces that were recently introduced with custom design for our VersaCare® and our TotalCare® bed systems," said Mary Butler, vice president, Global Product Management for Hill-Rom. "These surfaces really resonate with our customers because they are easy to use and they provide key safety features to help caregivers effectively treat their patients. Now we are introducing the Hill-Rom P500 system with even more versatility as it can be paired with most flat deck beds. That makes this surface a perfect option for purchase with new beds, as a replacement surface for existing beds or as a therapy surface that can be rented."

She added, "Caregivers are really looking for a therapy surface to help keep their patients safe and to prevent or help heal skin issues like pressure ulcers. This surface brings together state-of-the-art technology that accomplishes that goal, while still being easy to use and comfortable for the patient."

The Hill-Rom P500 Therapy Surface offers a mix of key features, including:

  • Weight-based pressure redistribution supporting patients up to 500 pounds
  • Advanced Microclimate® Technology, which is the most advanced low air loss system available
  • Turn Assist with "confirm rails up" feature to aid the caregiver in turning the patient left or right
  • Audible and visual Bed Exit, 30-degree Head-of-Bed and RemindMe™ alarms to help reduce the risk of caregiver and patient injury
  • Shear-resistant material and a real-time pressure redistribution algorithm that offers shear and friction management, protecting the skin
  • nano Ag+® technology with SmartSilver® ticking, protecting the surface from stain and odor-causing bacteria
  • Comfort Adjust to optimize patient comfort within the therapeutic range

The Hill-Rom P500 Therapy Surface will be featured at the Clinical Symposium on Advances in Skin & Wound Care (CSCW) being held in Orlando, Florida, September 30 through October 3, 2010.  Hill-Rom representatives will be available at booth #307 at CSCW.
