ActiveX™ Mattress Overlay

Pressure care ActiveX™ overlay

The range of Icare Pressure care overlays are designed to provide added pressure relief and comfort on an existing mattress.

The overlay features the ActiveX™ material is the main comfort layer in this mattress. ActiveX™ is a high grade of elastic type foam which is responsive to temperature around inflamed areas. ActiveX™ will become softer as it becomes warmer. So around a pressure point it will always soften and allow the blood to circulate freely.

These overlays come in all the mattress sizes up to queen.

This rating is based on our average peak pressure of <18mmHg. The pressure redistribution and feel will vary depending on the under surface. Some high risk clients may require a medical cover which is not available for this product.

Icare risk category ratings are based on average peak pressure, Therapist recommendation, case studies, industry comparison and the Waterlow scale. The best way to assess a client on a pressure reducing surface is to monitor pressure points with visual checks over a period of 5 days.

» To launder the cover in a washing machine, set the main wash to a minimum of 65°C for no less than 10 minutes. The cover can be tumble dried on low heat and the temperature must not exceed 60°C. The foam can be autoclaved at 134°C.

Pressure Redistribution
The overlay features the ActiveX™ material is the main comfort layer in this mattress. ActiveX™ is a high grade of elastic type foam which is responsive to temperature around inflamed areas. ActiveX™ will become softer as it becomes warmer. So around a pressure point it will always soften and allow the blood to circulate freely.

All-way Contour Cover
The Icare overlay is made with an Elastex material cover. This fabric has a high elasticity in every direction enabling it to conform with body and sleeping surface contour.

Ventilated Side Fabric
Vant fabric is a three-dimensional polypropylene material that has high air permeability and is anti-bacterial. We use this on the side wall of the overlay covers to greatly increase air movement.

Any Sleeping Surface
The Icare overlay can be used on any type of sleeping surface. The pressure redistribution and feel will vary depending on the under surface.

Why should I consider an Icare Mattress Overlay over a new Icare Pressure Relieving Mattress

The Icare Pressure Care Overlay is designed to provide added pressure relief and comfort on an existing mattress. These overlays are heat and pressure sensitive causing them to soften around pressure points and inflamed areas.


A Mattress Overlay is an affordable way to provide relief for the short-term; especially for short-term illness, recovery from surgery or to provide added comfort to an existing mattress.


Another way the Overlays are frequently used is with a alternating air mattress. When an air mattress is used on a profiling bed, the air pressure can change when the bed positions are adjusted. By having the 50mm Overlay on top (or underneath) the mattress – this provides the bed user a basic layer of comfort instead of them laying flat on the hard bed surface.


Second consideration with air mattresses is they are cold to lay on, having the 50mm ActiveX Mattress Overlay on the top assists with body temperature regulation, while responding to the air pressure within the alternating air mattress. This is also true with roho cushions and other air products.
