Optima Auto

Reducing pressure injuries for long-term care — Increasing skin activity and improving blood circulation with alternating pressure.

On average, 65 per 1000 adult inpatients develop pressure injuries (also known as pressure ulcers) and require 18 in-hospital days. That's 2.5 times that of an average acute inpatient. Financially, treating PU sets families back by USD 15,700 to USD 17,700. Since 87% are elderly patients, an ageing population and COVID-19 accelerates PU prevalence, exhausting global human, material, and capital reserves.1 

Optima Auto provides caregivers more control and personalization over air mattress firmness, an elementary air pump interface suitable for all levels of caregivers, and a backup power system for maintaining pressure distribution up to 6 hours. Preventing pressure injuries improves patient outcomes and patient care experience.

Prepared for intensive compression care

  • Proprietary automatic pump optimizes mattress pressure settings to patients' weight distribution for fast pressure relief. 
  • Cell encapsulated in cell (cell-in-cell) in the sacrum area improves structural support for comfy sitting and in-bed movements. 
  • Built-in battery (optional) ensures non-stop alternating pressure relief up to 6 hours for securing transportation or power failures. 
  • Visual interface with LCD simplifies controls, indicators, settings, and power functionalities for all levels of caregivers to use. 
  • A noise-sensitive pump ensures stressed patients and caregivers recover and work in a comfortable and safe environment. 

Pump's auto-detection and initiation simplify caregivers' workflow in quickly providing optimal pressure relief care.

Supported and comfortable seating motivates patients in staying active, improving patient recovery and outcome.

Continuous pressure relief care during transport ensures uninterrupted therapy outcomes and patient comfort.

Intuitive pump interface and low-noise levels allow caregivers to deliver care and comfort throughout the day consistently.

Improving pressure ulcer prevention, patient comfort and outcome, and reducing caregivers’ workload.

FAQ
What materials are the air cells made from?

All air cells are made from Thermoplastic Polyurethanes (TPU). It is highly resistant to breaking down when in contact with water (hydrolysis), soft to touch, and minimizes friction and noise during patient movements.

What does it mean when air cells have cell-in-cell? What are their benefits?

Cell-in-cell design refers to encapsulating a firm air cell within a larger outer cell, doubling the effect of firmness and stability for patients. Wellell’s Optima Series, including Auto, uses air cells with the cell-in-cell design in the sacrum area to improve patient support and comfort during sitting positions and when patients leave and enter the bed.

Any recommendations on the number of cells to deflate for each section and for heel relief?

Optima Auto's pressure relief solution divides into 3 zones: head, torso, and Lower leg. During care, each zone provides optimal pressure redistribution, immersion, and envelopment based on the weight of the body part, improving stability and comfort for patients of all body types.
