Safely and easily transfer your patients

Introducing the Prevalon™ Mobile Air Transfer System

Over the course of a year, 35,800 nurse workdays are lost due to musculoskeletal injury.1 According to the American Nursing Association, one of the most common tasks that leads to injury is transferring patients.2 The Prevalon Mobile Air Transfer System (MATS) provides a safe and easy way to laterally transfer your patients. It significantly reduces the cumulative effects of multiple patient transfers throughout a routine shift. START A FREE TRIAL

Use air to improve your care

The system uses a cushion of air to help laterally transfer patients from one surface to another with significantly less exertion and without the need for lifting. It’s uniquely designed to simultaneously inflate and cradle your patient. This process keeps the patient comfortable and properly positioned. The system can also remain with the patient and provide transfer assistance throughout the hospital stay, whether in the ER, OR, Cath Lab, or patient care rooms.

Patient Transfer Systems

The Prevalon Mobile Air Transfer System (MATS) uses a cushion of air to allow a majority of patients to be moved laterally from one surface to another with significantly less exertion and without the need for lifting. It is designed to remain with the patient and provide transfer assistance throughout a hospital stay. When used in conjunction with an evidence-based protocol, MATS can help reduce the risk of injuries and eliminate potential costs to healthcare systems.

Staff Benefits

  • Helps reduce the risk of staff injury during patient transfers
  • Requires fewer nurses and less time to transfer than standard of care
  • Reduces exertion needed to transfer patients

Patient Benefits

  • Raises patient in one smooth motion
  • Helps prevent shear and friction forces on the patient’s skin during lateral transfers
  • Provides a simple and comfortable transfer experience

Prevalon MATS

  • Head and foot indicator—Promotes proper patient placement
  • Disposable (single patient use)—lowers the risk of cross-contamination
  • Imaging capability—acceptable for use in MRI,* X-Ray, CT Scan, and Ultrasounds1
  • 1,000 lb weight limit—accommodates a majority of patients
  • Skin friendly and breathable—can stay with patient for length of stay

Prevalon MATS Features

*Prevalon MATS is MR safe by rationale. The device is made from all non-metal materials; therefore MR safety testing was not performed. Compatibility tests did not show artifacts. Based on rationale, the MAT is electronically non-conductive and non-magnetic.
The Blower Cart and Blower are not MR safe.
