The PressureGuard CFT is one of four therapeutic air beds listed by Transfer Master Products, Inc. among its Specialty Mattresses. Like the Turn Select, these four PressureGuard mattresses, including the CFT, are designed by Span America Medical Systems, Inc.
The PressureGuard CFT is one of Span America's three PressureGuard Non-Powered Treatment Surfaces (the other two are Custom Care and Custom Care Hospice). It does not require any electric power to operate. The objectives of this model are pain relief, wound healing, and bed sore prevention.
CFT stands for Constant Force Technology. The air cylinders are interconnected and have elastic reservoirs. This air support network operates on the balance of air pressure among its components.
The benefits of the PressureGuard CFT include saving on electicity, little if any maintenance, ease of care and cleaning, and compliance with standards for safety and skin care. The cover is a waterproof fabric to protect the inner componenets from contamination and make it easy to clean and sanitize.
The weight limit for a PressureGuard CFT Mattress is 500 lbs. for Twin size and 750 lbs. for all others. It is covered by a 2-year non-prorated Span America warranty.
