HoverMatt Split-Leg HoverMatt Split-Leg SPU with Air Supply HoverMatt Split-Leg Reusable HoverMatt Split-Leg SPU in use

The HoverMatt® Split-Leg Matt is a specialty transfer mattress designed for use in the lithotomy position or on surgical tables when split-leg attachments are used. The Split-Leg Matt has a patented design that separates the bottom half of the transfer mattress into two individual segments, or ‘legs’. These legs snap together for effortless lateral patient transfers and are then unsnapped for convenient positioning on the procedure table. Ideal for use in bariatric and urogynaecological procedures. The Split-Leg Matt SPU version provides the added convenience of disposability once the patient’s hospital stay has concluded.

  • Air-assisted technology improves patient and caregiver safety and comfort during transfers
  • Inflated mattress moves patient in stable position, reducing skin shear and bruising
  • Split-leg design allows for easy positioning with specialty procedure tables, while foot-end snaps help keep patients legs together during transfers
  • Radiolucent and MRI compatible for artifact-free imaging
  • 544kg weight limit accommodates most patients

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.
