About the Thermoregulating (TR) Material
TR Material contains micro-encapsulated Phase Change Materials (PCMs), and was first developed to help astronauts maintain their body temperature. The material should help to ‘keep cool people warm’ and ‘keep warm people cool’. The material allows heat from the body to escape, or if the body is getting cold, it traps the warmth. Many people who are undergoing cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy may benefit from the cooling material.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Thermoregulating Top Sheet is suitable for someone who runs too hot or too cold at night or when sleeping.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Place the Mattress Topper on the mattress. The four elastic corner straps are long enough to fit very deep mattresses . Fit the elastic straps under the corners of the mattress and adjust the elastic using the buckle to make a secure fit. Do not over tighten the elastic straps so the elastic will be able to expand when the person gets into bed.
When fitting, be aware that the TR Mattress Topper material does not have any stretch properties, so the material may crease up under the patient. The benefit of stopping perspiration may be more beneficial for the patient without comprising pressure care. After using, as normal good nursing practice, the patient’s skin integrity should always be checked.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Thermoregulating material, non-latex rubber.
As the reason why people perspire can vary a lot, we cannot guarantee the TR Material will work for everyone. We are unable to accept the items back for credit if they do not work, because of cross infection.
The Thermoregulating Material is a delicate material that wears out more quickly than other materials. See the Important Information tab for more information.
