    Encompass Group Showcases Transformative Airisana™ Therapeutic Support Surface at WOCNext 2022

    McDonough, GA, – (June 2022) – Encompass Group, LLC is showcasing its patented Airisana™ Therapeutic Support Surface at the WOCNext 2022 Conference, June 5-June 8, in Fort Worth, Texas.

    “The Airisana surface was developed because healthcare-acquired pressure injury (HAPI) rates have not only stopped declining, they’ve actually risen in the last few years,” said Michelle Daniels, Encompass Group VP, Product Strategy, Development and Administration. “Contributing factors like increased acuities, decompensation, increased use of medical devices, and patient adaptation all play a role. But with Airisana, we’re giving caregivers an important new tool. Combined with the benefits of its revolutionary design and easy implementation, Arisana helps nurses, clinicians, and their institutions, do a better job of battling pressure injuries. We’re delighted that Airisana has been so well received by the nursing community. We’re looking forward to showcasing this product at the WOCNext 2022 Conference.”

    Each Airisana system comes with an intuitive soft-touch user control panel that’s quiet enough to ensure a comfortable healing environment and keeps control in the care provider’s hands. The repeating pressure therapy patterns employed by traditional therapeutic support surfaces increase the probability that a patient’s body can adjust to the process, which can impede healing. Airisana reduces this risk with randomized pressure therapy modes that promote sustained pressure reduction and combine the benefits of multiple pressure therapies into a constantly changing surface a patient’s body doesn’t get used to. Airisana conforms evenly to irregularities such as body contours. This puts the greatest amount of contact between skin and surface and ensures decreased pressure without interfering with patient mobility. With turn-assist reducing friction and shear risk, and reducing caregiver injury, nurses and clinicians can now easily reposition patients as needed.  

    Michelle Daniels concludes, “We designed Airisana in consultation with medical engineers, biologists, clinicians, and WOC nurse professionals to address a broad range of issues associated with current therapies and surfaces. These include improving clinical efficiency and reducing costs; shortening time-released-to-care and time-to-mobility; reducing pressure- and moisture-associated skin deterioration; reducing staff injuries from repositioning patients; easing egress and ingress; and reducing acclimatization of the patient to the surface. From the beginning, our goal with Airisana has been to help keep healthcare-acquired pressure injury rates moving in the right direction: Down.”
