The system's Pulsating Air Suspension Therapy aids in the increase of capillary blood flow, while percussion therapy helps loosen pulmonary secretions. Pressure relief therapy is designed to help prevent skin breakdown by maintaining interface pressure below capillary closing pressure. Low air-loss therapy with Gore-Tex fabric helps prevent heat and moisture build-up on the patient's skin that can lead to skin breakdown. The fabric is vapor- and air-permeable, waterproof, and has a bacterial barrier and a smooth fabric laminate that helps reduce friction and shearing of patients' skin.
