ThevoVital Dementia Care Mattress

Thomashilfen North America distributes a therapy mattress especially for persons with dementia. The ThevoVital is designed to enable dementia patients to sleep more restfully. When they can sleep longer without interruption, it enables the caregivers to get more rest themselves. And getting enough rest when needed improves mentality and activity during waking hours, making care more manageable.

ThevoVital is very similar to several other Thevo Mobility Mattresses, with a firm mattress foam layer above a Wing Suspension array. Specifications in specific areas are tailored for needs associated with dementia.

As decribed for other Thomashilfen Thevo beds, Wing Suspension, known as MiS Micro-Stimulation, is an array of "wings" mounted on tranverse rods. These are all made from a flexible form of glass. The ends of the "wings" are discs. These act like specialized springs, responding to movements by the sleeper. According to Thomashilfen, this response adapts the support of the mattress to body areas. For dementia patients, this means the perception of where their body is, their orientation. This in turn affects the sleep cycle.

Disorientation interferes with sleep, For someone with dementia, this makes it difficult to get back to sleep. Then lack of sleep produces fatigue, which interferes with waking activities, cognition and moods. According to Thomashilfen, better sleep from using their dementia mattress results in

•Less night time wandering
•Less napping during the day
•Less disorientation
•Decreased need for sleep aid medications
•Peace of mind for caregivers

Closely related is the Dementia Suspension, the mounting of the Wing Suspension. With a kind of oval circle-8 outline, these carbon fiber mounts absorb shock, softening the impact for the sleeper. Yet they are study enough to stabilize the mattress.

The firm foam layer at the top of the ThevoVital mattress construction has a formulation unique to Thomashilfen. The company chose to have firmness at the top with the softer response beneath as the key ingredient in therapy. This is not suprising, since Karl Thomas, the founder of the Thomas Group (Thomashilfen) perfected european style wood slats, a foundation which has gained a following in America. Now they've developed Lattoflex, "The backbone for your bed," which is similar to the Wing Suspension in Thevo Mobility Mattresses.

The cover of the ThevoVital is zippered so it can be removed, washed and tumble-dried. The buyer can choose jersey knit or incontinence protection fabric. Both are breathable, but the incontinence cover can be wiped clean with a disinfectant.

ThevoVital is available through several medical equipment and healthcare products dealers around the world. The warranty from Thomashilfen is lifetime coverage for the support system and 10 years for the mattress foam and the cover.
