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.
