ArjoHuntleigh Maxi AirTM

The Maxi Air™ is an air assisted single patient multiple use system that seeks to promote a safe and effective solution for lateral transfers. Lateral transfers and repositioning are the most commonly cited patient handling tasks reported in healthcare, but change is in the air. Maxi Air cushions the patient on a bed of air – a floating effect created by air flowing through the perforated underside of the inflatable single patient use mattress. This effect minimizes friction and shearing forces when transferring and repositioning the patient, resulting in a gentle and safe transfer for both the patient and caregiver.
