"The Optima Speciality Support System effectively reduces the pressure between the user and the support surface according to studies conducted by Takala & Soppi (2004)* and White et al (2007)*. This translates clinically into prevention of ulceration in acute respiritory failure (Takala & Soppi 1996)* and, in our ongoing evaluations, pain relief and improved sleep in a variety of chronic disorders.

Following equalisation of the mattress, over a 16 minute cycle, a massive 43% reduction in pressure was recorded - down from 39mmHg to 22mmHg."
