Innovative Motif-Gel-3

Our pioneering new Motif-Gel-3 brings Geltex® technology to our range of mattresses, offering enhancements in breathability, support, comfort, pressure redistribution & mattress longevity compared to ordinary foams.

What is Geltex®?

Geltex® represents the next generation in technology evolution for medical mattresses. Its unique, open-cell structure provides outstanding comfort for the user, whilst reducing pressure points and friction.

CMHR foam & Geltex® upper vs Viscoelastic:

The Motif-Gel-3 is a very high risk pressure redistribution mattress which, when used with our range of profiling beds, offers extra support and comfort because Geltex® gently pushes back rather than sinking away.

The Motif-Gel-3 has an innovative combination of a 50mm Geltex® upper layer and sturdy CMHR foam base and side walls. The firm side walls give structure and support when getting in and out of bed, whilst the Geltex® layer aids stability and comfort in turning, repositioning and transfer.

Geltex® is also not temperature sensitive so performs exceptionally even in humid conditions, contributing further to the life span of the mattress even if used 24 hours a day.

Motif-Gel-3 is available from stock in various size options matched to our range of profiling beds:

Note: Nexus brand mattresses are designed to work in harmony with our beds, providing adequate clearance between the mattress and the moving parts of the bed. Outside mattress dimensions therefore are generally less than the nominal bed sizes we quote.
