The HoverMatt Air Transfer System is the number one choice of hospitals for lateral patient transfers and patient repositioning.

With this revolutionary HoverMatt Air Transfer System, the mattress – and the patient – float on a cushion of air, so caregivers can safely transfer patients without lifting or straining. By virtually eliminating the injuries related to lateral transfers and repositioning, the HoverMatt Air Transfer System significantly helps to improve staff retention, while meeting legislative guidelines for safe patient handling.

The HoverMatt Transfer Mattress also gives your patient more comfort and safety, with reduced skin shear and bruising.

The Double-Coated version offers fluid and stain resistance, making it ideal for the OR or Maternity wards.

  • Air-assisted technology improves patient and caregiver safety and comfort during transfers
  • A reusable product that is designed to be wiped down between uses and laundered in
    accordance with hospital infection control practices
  • Inflated mattress moves patient in stable position, reducing skin shear and bruising
  • Heat-sealed construction eliminates needle holes that are potential bacteria pathways
  • Radiolucent and MRI compatible for artifact-free imaging
  • Available in multiple styles and widths with a 544kg weight limit to accommodate most patients
  • Variable speed air supply provides quieter and slower inflation options

The HoverMatt® Air Transfer System is used to assist caregivers with patient transfers, positioning, turning and proning. The HoverTech Air Supply inflates the HoverMatt to cushion and cradle the patient, while air simultaneously escapes from the holes on the underside, reducing the force needed to move the patient by 80-90%1.
