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 TRIAL
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.
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.
