Superior Injury Protection
- Only 1 inch thick with tapered to-the-floor edging
Prevents tripping and permits carts, chairs and IV stands to roll over easily.
- A blend of ultra high density core foams
When covered, cheaper cores may look the same… but won’t perform the same.
- Heavy duty vinyl cover, bonded to provide greater impact distribution
Helps transfer the force of a falling patient into and across the surface.
- Non-Slip Vinyl base
This specially formulated composite is bonded around the perimeter of the pad’s core, then High Frequency Welded to the top fabric for
a thin, strong seal. More than ever, the new Landing Strip stays where you need it.
- Sealed Edges
Wipes clean to protect appearance and performance.
- Unified, Durable Construction
Foldable mats can separate at the seams and encourage storage away from the bed. Should a fall occur while the mat is in storage, liability will increase.
- Nite Glo™ Edging
Helps patients and staff see their Landing Strip® when lights are low.
Why Fall Mats should not fold:
Some mats fold for easy storage. This creates seams which become tripping hazards, trap dirt and eventually begin to split apart.
A stored mat will not protect patients or reduce liability from within a closet. Imagine the liability exposure should a fall occur and the bedside fall mat is under the bed or in the closet.
The Landing Strip® is engineered to have a thin, floor hugging perimeter, gradual incline and a compression welded seal.
So, when investing in protection… Invest wisely.
How It Works
- The Landing Strip® lies unobtrusively alongside the bed, ready to absorb and redirect impact forces should a fall occur.
- The combination of firm, compressed foams, bonded top fabric and free-floating bottom fabric react the moment of impact.
- Deceleration begins and the high density core prevents a sudden bottoming-out against the floor. Like the airbags used by stunt people, downward force can dissipate along the underside of the mat, away from the point of impact preventing a sudden reversal of energy. Softer mats may be able to bounce a falling egg, but can fail under the force generated by a falling person.
