FAQs

Is there a weight limit for patients using Repose?
Repose can be used for patients up to 222kg*. There is no lower patient weight limit. Regularly monitor patients towards the higher limits of the weight range.

Do you have to set the pressure on Repose manually?
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 Repose be cleaned?
Cleaning recommendations for Repose are similar to those for standard PU covered foam mattresses. Clean with soap and water and, if necessary, disinfect with a chlorine-based disinfectant (not phenol-based). Thoroughly dry Repose dry before reuse or repackaging into the tube. Cleaning instructions are supplied. Repose is reusable.

Can Repose be repaired if it is punctured?
Puncture is an infrequent occurrence. We have no evidence to support the use of Repose after a repair, therefore, recommend that if Repose is punctured, it should be replaced.

What is the fire resistance of Repose?
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.

Should a sheet cover the mattress overlay?
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, ensure it is loosely fitted so 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 Repose be disposed of?
Repose is a CE marked medical device. At the end of its useful life, Repose 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 does 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 while on a Repose Mattress Overlay.

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