The Pre-Vent II Series® of therapeutic pressure redistributing foam mattresses is the culmination of extensive research and testing. Blue Chip Medical’s exclusive Sphere™, Reflect™ SCT™ and Multi-Flex™ designs react to body weight displacement across the entire surface. This prevents and relieves pressure sores by keeping the body in a constant state of suspension; Prevention by Suspension™.
Our unique shapes together with our Med-Flex™ PPF™ foams, react instinctively to a compression set, allowing for a fully automatic, totally zoned surface. Other manufacturers’ surfaces are zone specific and must always take into consideration a patients weight, size (build) and shape. Blue Chip’s Sphere™ and Reflect™ designs act independently as its own self-adjusting, pressure-redistribution zone. Every component of the Pre-Vent II Series® medical foam mattress, undergoes a strict protocol to ensure clinical efficacy, infection control standards and durability for the life of the mattress.
a 4-way stretch urethane coated fabric with a low moisture vapor
transmission rate (MVTR). A low MVTR is desired for the benefit of
infectioncontrol and the wicking of fluids away from the skin.
Vyvex-lll™ is fluid proof and offers low-shear,
low-friction protection, is anti-microbial, fire retardant, stain
resistant and washable. This cover features Blue Chip’s
exclusive Barrier Lok™ infection control system. Vyvex-lll™ is
standard on the Suspension Pre-Vent II Series® mattress system
and is available as an option on all other models.
Vyvex-l™Vyvex-ll™ is Nylon
Butyl-backed; Vyvex-l™ is a Nylon PVC-backed top cover with
a low moisture vapor transmission rate (MVTR). Vyvex-ll™ and
Vyvex-l™ are both fluid proof and offer low-shear,
low-friction protection and are anti-microbial, fire retardant,
stain resistant and washable. This cover features Blue Chip’s
exclusive Barrier Lok™ infection control system. Vyvex-ll™ is
standard on the Supreme and Elite Pre-Vent II Series® mattress
systems. Vyvex-l™ is standard on the Pro Pre-Vent II
Series® mattress system.
Med-Flex™ PPF™ (Pressurized
Polymer Foaming) Manufacturing ProcessPPF™ is
the most modern manufacturing process used today. This process
uses an enclosed controlled environment rather than a traditional
open-line pour. PPF™ allows for the precision control of
atmospheric pressures during manufacturing adding to the purity of
the foam’s cell structure. This method greatly reduces the sag
factor (deflection), thereby enhancing the product’s life and
extending the uncompromising pressure-redistributing qualities of
our foam mattress systems. PPF™ technology enables Blue
Chip to warranty the longevity of our Pre-Vent II Series®
mattresses to outlast all other conventional mattress systems.
Multi-Flex™ PPF™Multi-Flex™ PPF™ foam
provides support for proper immersion and pressure redistribution
by utilizing our exclusive compression technology to absorb the
patient’s weight, providing ultimate comfort and pressure
redistribution throughout the core of the mattress. This design
used in conjunction with our Reflect™ SCT™ (Surface Cut
Technology) creates the ultimate environment for the prevention
and treatment of pressure ulcers.
patent-pending anatomically inspired sphere shape offers the most
unique design the therapeutic support surface industry has ever
seen. The Sphere™ design is clinically effective in
redistributes the interface pressures which create pressure sores.
Compressing the sphere down expands the surface area into a flat
pressure-redistribution surface to evenly distribute and support
the patient’s weight across the entire mattress surface. Each
Sphere™ acts independently as its own self-adjusting
pressure-redistribution zone. As the body moves across the
mattress, the spheres’ touch points help stimulate blood flow.
The Sphere™ design permits air circulation, reducing heat
build-up which provides a much cooler, more comfortable support

Cut Technology) Reflect™ SCT™
foam enables Blue Chip to produce a single piece of polyurethane
foam with varying features and properties. We can alter the
surface pattern, size, space, position, level and depth of cut.
This engineering advancement produces a pressure-redistribution
surface that gives unlimited comfort zones never thought possible
in a single piece of foam. SCT™ allows the Reflect™ design
to be stronger and more supportive with a greater surface area
than conventional foam convolution. This design absorbs and
distributes the impact-weight of the body to provide greater
comfort, maximum support and to redistribute pressure around bony
Heel Wrap™ PPF™ Foam Exclusive
Heel Wrap™ PPF™ foam is incorporated in the top
layer of every Pre-Vent II Series® mattress system for maximum
prevention of heel ulcers. For years, heel pillows have been
buried beneath the top surface of the mattress. Blue Chip’s Heel
Wrap™ PPF™ foam was brought to the surface to
replace the fiber/foam pillow with individual, self-adjusting,
pressure-redistribution zones. Heel Wrap™ PPF™ foam
provides a cradle of comfort and support in the sensitive heel
area with a softer foam that is more durable than conventional
fiber/foam heel pillows.

Barrier Lok™ Infection
Control SystemBlue Chip’s exclusive Barrier
Lok™ feature virtually seals and protects the inner foam
core of the mattress by preventing the leaching of fluids from
penetrating the perimeter seam of the mattress. The Barrier
Lok™ ensures that infection controlstandards are
maintained, thereby providing investment protection on all
Pre-Vent II Series® mattress systems.
Dual-Protection Slip LayerOur
silk film slip layer eliminates friction between the inner foam
core and the top cover. This allows both surfaces to move
independently against one another extending the life of the
mattress. In addition, the special silk film offers added
protection against the leaching of fluids to the inner foam core.
PPF™ foams and Vyvex™ mattress coverings are
anti-microbial and effectively protect against bacterial growth.
The anti-microbial additive used is proven to be effective against
a wide spectrum of micro-organisms, including (MRSA), mold,
mildew, staining and odors caused by fungal organisms. CA16
additive for additional protection is available upon request.

Bolster The PSB™ Perimeter Safety Bolster
is Standard on all Prevent II Series® Mattress Systems. The
SRS™ Safety Rail System can be added to any model to reduce
the risk of patient falls. Both systems comply with the new FDA
patient entrapment guidelines. Both Systems are made with the same
Med-Flex™ PPF™ foam used in the Prevent II Series®
Mattresses. SRS™ is a raised side rail system.
