Topic: Microclimate Management

Q: What is the name of the technology that reduces the risk of moisture associated skin damage and comes as standard on the Virtuoso dynamic mattress range?

A: Microclimate Management

In the context of pressure ulcers, microclimate usually refers to skin temperature and moisture conditions at the skin-support surface interface. Virtuoso helps maintain the natural thermoregulation by the air circulation. It helps manage humidity of a patient’s skin in order to help prevent or assist in the treatment of tissue damage related to moisture on the skin, in accordance with NICE Clinical Guidance.
