Pressure Armor is proud to offer new technology in skin pressure protection with our Low-G® Pressure Armor protection system. Our flagship product, The Low-G mattress overlay, was developed to protect skin tissue from conditions that lead to the formation of pressure ulcers.
Our patented Low-G technology evolved through years of research and development in the aerospace industry. Since 2010, the Low-G has undergone thousands of hours of clinical trials in hospitals, long term care facilities, and by home care providers. Feedback has been positive and the Low-G has been met with enthusiasm by medical patients, staff, and administrators. During initial trials, we worked with Olympic Medical Center, in Port Angeles Washington. After more than 13,000 equivalent days of patient use, only a single pressure ulcer occurrence was reported. Evaluators praised the Low-G, not only as a prevention tool, but also for its ease of deployment, low maintenance, and comfort. Unlike alternating overlays, the Low-G is stationary, silent, requires no external power, and is not prone to patient falls.
"Our staff and patients were so thrilled with the product that we have now deployed 40 Low-G® surfaces to cover all the beds in our units. This overlay is an amazing tool that we can use to help us prevent pressure ulcers during hospitalization." — Lorraine Wall RN, MSN, Assistant Administrator/CNO Olympic Medical Center
"The Low-G® Overlay has proven to be a wonderful tool in terms of fall reduction. It is much easier for the patients to position themselves using this product without the same fear of falling to the floor which some tend to experience when using an airbed. Turning of patients on a airbed requires a two-person assist, but with the Low-G Overlay, a single person can easily manage the task, saving time for our employees so that they can use that time to focus on other patient care." — Sarah Moore, R.N., Director of Nursing, Crestwood Convalescent Center
