Skin protection and positioning
This cushion offers skin protection and positioning with a CoolCore, 4-way stretch, breathable cover. Includes urethane liner. Weight capacities are 159 kg for 406 – 508 mm (16”-20”) width and 295 kg for 559 mm (22”) width.
The CoolCore cover offers several benefits over other cover options. It manages and distributes moisture quickly throughout the fabric, for starters, to decrease evaporation and drying time. Another advantage is year-round temperature regulation allowing the Spectrum Foam SPP to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Finally, the CoolCore cooling technology is built into the fabric fibres, preventing any decline in performance and keeping its cooling properties.
The Spectrum Foam SPP has a built-in handle for convenient carrying. An optional fluid-proof liner is available to protect against incontinence. If requested, the Spectrum SPP cover can be substituted for the standard CoolCore cover.

Preventing pressure ulcers
It can be difficult to prevent pressure ulcers completely, but there are some things you or your care team can do to reduce the risk.
- Regularly changing your position – if you’re unable to change position yourself, a relative or carer will need to help you
- Checking your skin every day for early signs and symptoms of pressure ulcers – your care team will do this if you’re in a hospital or care home
- Have a healthy, balanced diet that contains enough protein and a good variety of vitamins and minerals – if you’re concerned about your diet or caring for someone whose diet may be poor, ask your GP or healthcare team for a referral to a dietitian
- Stopping smoking – smoking makes you more likely to get pressure ulcers because of the damage caused to blood circulation
If you’re in a hospital or care home, your healthcare team should be aware of the risk of developing pressure ulcers. They should carry out a risk assessment, monitor your skin and use preventative measures, such as regular repositioning.
