Factors to Consider
There are many things to consider when selecting pressure care products including nutrition, skin moisture, level of mobility, age, shear, friction, location of pressure ulcer (if present) and hygiene. Any comments regarding level of pressure care is a suggestion made by suppliers as a guide to assist with selection, and this may differ from brand to brand. When selecting pressure care products it is strongly advised that a comprehensive assessment is undertaken by a health professional to encourage correct product selection and monitoring of product effectiveness.

The Xact Individual is able to be custom made in contour to the individual needs of the user, while still featuring the combination of foam and polymer.
This features over 32 options which includes obliquity build ups, pelvic blocks and leg discrepancy modifications.


Akton Grid Pad
The channels of the grid keep fluids away from the user and allows for air circulation.
The polymer will not leak if punctured.
Hook and loop (Velcro) attachment allows for the insertion of positioning wedges.

Contoured Foam Base
The base consists of several densities of foam. The softest density is used as a cushioning support for the Akton Grid, the pommel consists of medium density foam and a firm foam is used as the foundation of the cushion.
The base is sealed to protect it from incontinence.
An Ischial Aeration System is in place at the rear well of the cushion. This consists of air pockets which have an aerating effect when compressed.
