Premium shear management.
Stryker’s premier stretcher surface, IsoFlex SE, addresses the key risk factors to skin breakdown: pressure and shear. In doing so, IsoFlex SE enhances patient comfort and aids in the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers.
Innovation. Inside and out.
Experience the value of gel technology.
It’s true: Pressure ulcers can begin in as little as the first two hours* of a patient’s admittance into a clinical setting. They pose a serious threat and should be treated as such.
With the aforementioned knowledge of the severity of pressure ulcers in mind, we designed IsoFlex SE with specific features to aid in treatment and prevention. Most important of these features, is gel.
Featuring only-in-class ShearGel, IsoFlex SE was designed to help minimize the friction between the surface and the patient. Its technology offers a layer of support so IsoFlex SE can move freely with patient movements.
Located in the sacral region, CoreGel creates a positioning pocket to help prevent patient migration1. Its design helps absorb and redistribute patient weight to aid in pressure redistribution.
Sloped heel section
IsoFlex SE features a sloped heel section to further address our commitment to pressure ulcer prevention by helping reduce the risk of heel breakdown.
Bringing preventative cover features to the surface.
In line with our commitment to aiding in proactive prevention, we designed the cover of IsoFlex SE with specialized features intended to make it more durable and effective at infection control.
It was engineered for ease of use, especially during the maintenance and care process. Its cover is made with a polycarbonate polyurethane material for increased chemical resistance.
ComfortGel SE features a slip-resistant bottom to help improve infection prevention through the elimination of Velcro while maintaining affixation to the stretcher during patient movement and transfers.
ComfortGel SE features RF welded seams that utilize electromagnetic bonding to limit fluid ingress and infiltration.
Caregivers can fully inspect the condition of internal components of their stretcher surface with IsoFlex SE’s three-sided zipper.
