  • Persons weighing in excess of 139kg
  • Persons with unstable spinal fractures

If deterioration in skin condition is noted, clinical advice should be sought and, if so advised, use of the product discontinued. Avoid direct contact with heat and sharp objects. When deflated, keep away from babies and small children. Keep away from pets.

Clinical Information

FAQs

Is there a weight limit for patients using Repose?
Repose can be used for patients up to 139 kg. There is no lower patient weight limit. Patients at the higher extremes of the weight range should be monitored regularly.

Do you have to manually set the pressure on Repose?
No, ‘smart valve’ technology in the pump automatically ensures Repose inflates to the optimal pressure. This pressure has been demonstrated over time (and supported by clinical trials) to be the optimal balance between comfort and efficacy for pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.

How should the products be cleaned?
Cleaning recommendations for Repose are similar to those for standard PU covered foam mattresses. Clean with soap and water and, if necessary, with a chlorine-based disinfectant (not phenol-based). The product should be dry before repackaging into the tube. Cleaning instructions are supplied with the product. Repose is reusable.

Can the product be repaired if it is punctured?
Puncture is an infrequent occurrence and is usually caused by pets. We have no evidence to support the use of Repose after repair and we therefore recommend that if the product is punctured, it should be replaced.

What is the fire resistance of the product?
Repose has been tested to conform with BS: 7175 Crib Test 5, (Methods of test for the ignitability of bedcovers and pillows by smouldering and flaming ignition sources).

Can Repose be inflated with the patient in place?
No, the ‘smart valve’ technology is designed to set pressures before the patient is in place. It takes less than a minute to inflate Repose prior to use.

Should the mattress overlay be covered by a sheet?
It is not necessary, however most patients find it comfortable and carers find it convenient to use a cotton sheet. If a sheet is used, it should be loosly fitted to ensure that “hammocking” does not occur.

What happens if the person requires CPR?
Repose is a low profile mattress overlay which contains no exposed metal or electrical elements and can be used safely during CPR.

How should the product be disposed of?
Repose is a CE marked medical device. At the end of its useful life, the product should be treated as healthcare waste and disposed of according to local healthcare waste guidelines. It may be incinerated with other healthcare waste.

Can the mattress overlay be used with electric under or over blankets?
Repose has not been tested for use with electric blankets. Frontier do not endorse or provide guidance on the use of Repose in association with electric blankets.

Does a patient on Repose still need to be turned?
Pressure ulcers result from a combination of factors including pressure, shear, friction, and maceration. In common with all pressure redistributing mattresses carers should follow standard protocols for turning the patient whilst on a Repose Mattress Overlay.

Is Repose latex – free?
Yes. Repose is latex – free and non – allergenic.
