ROHO® DRY FLOATATION® Mattress Overlay System

Find a Provider

The ROHO DRY FLOATATION Mattress Overlay System creates the ideal environment of protection and healing with the ORIGINAL non-powered, air-filled, adjustable, zoned, reactive mattress overlay.

Don’t let its simplicity fool you.  The performance, efficiency and quality of this overlay system are unequaled in the industry. Comprised of soft, interconnected air cells, the DRY FLOATATION mattress overlay conforms precisely to the body’s contours, helping soft tissue to maintain its shape in order to maximize the healing process as well as prevention.

Foam insert pad(s) are also available in both standard and custom configurations. They may be snapped to the ROHO DRY FLOATATION Mattress Section(s) to provide individuals with a localized approach to wound management when cost restraints are required.

In the United States, the ROHO DRY FLOATATION Mattress Overlay is distributed through Moxi Enterprises, LLC.

  • With 720 air cells, this mattress overlay allows for greater conformity and better pressure distribution. Each cell is specially treated to minimize friction and resulting shear.
  • The four sections of the mattress overlay are independently adjusted, providing a low-pressure environment over the entire contact area of the body.
  • The DRY FLOATATION system provides prevention and therapeutic coverage for all pressure injuries including deep tissue injuries. The ability to “float” in the mattress overlay promotes healing and reduces soft tissue deformation.
  • Using laser Doppler velocimetry in a year long study*, it was proven that blood flow increased at least four times the base line value when a individual was immersed in the DRY FLOATATION mattress overlay. (* Jacobs, Mary Ann, MSN RN. “Compression of Capillary Blood Flow Using a Regular Hospital Bed Mattress, ROHO Mattress, and Mediscus.” Rehabilitation Nursing 14.5 (September/October 1989).)
  • Drainage holes in the base of the mattress overlay allows for moisture to drain away from the body.
  • This overlay can be used in any clinical setting. It also is ideal for home, allowing earlier discharge for some individuals.
  • Adjustable. 3.5″ (8 cm) high air cells can be adjusted to the individual’s body shape and size and to their position over time.
  • Non-powered. Requires no external power source.
  • Easy to clean. May be cleaned and disinfected. See operations manual for instructions.
  • Repairable. Extends overall life of the mattress overlay.
  • Cover options. Reusable and full enclosure covers are available.

Power Seat Function Combinations

This is the 7th blog in our series about power wheelchairs. Check out the 1st blog,2nd blog,3rd blog,4th blog, 5th blog, and blog 6th. Check out our Power Wheelchair Guide for more information about power mobility.

Our last three blogs in the power wheelchair series have been about individual power seat functions. Simply put power seat functions are the different positions a power wheelchair can achieve. Today we're looking at how power seat functions and combinations available on different power wheelchair base types.

Power seat functions can always be combined. The available power seating options, however, are dependent to some extent on the type of power wheelchair base selected. Not all power wheelchairs can accommodate all power seat functions or the amount of the power seat function required for medical and/or functional needs. Some of the potential benefits to combining power seat functions include:

Cushion Considerations: Providing the Required Postural Support

This is the 3rd and final blog in our series on cushion considerations. Check out the1st blog and 2nd blog. Check out our Wheelchair Seating and Positioning Guidefor more information about wheelchair seating.

As we determine the appropriate method of pressure redistribution and cushion material, we must be aware of and consider how to address any postural abnormalities that may be present. Everyone is unique and has distinctive shapes and angles. Examples of asymmetrical postures at the pelvis include:

Pelvic tilt
Pelvic obliquity
Pelvic rotation
