Squirrel Dormir™- Outstanding Pressure Area Care

The Squirrel Dormir MRS was tested using a refined industry standard. This involved comparing the Dormir active mattress against a recognised market-leader brand mattress (as determined by worldwide sales and market share) known in the study as Brand C. 

During the test specific reference was made to key pressure outcome measures.

These testing outcome measures are considered the peak pressure measured, the average pressure measured and the distribution of different levels of pressure.

These pressures are considered to be 32mmHg (arteriole), 20mmHg (capillary) and 12mmHg (venule). In this test a human female volunteer was used whose body dimensions matched the average body dimensions found among the nursing home population (data taken from anthropometric studies).

As can be determined from the above results, the patented Squirrel Diamond was found to be superior than the industry leading competitor product (brand c) in terms of interface pressure distribution.
