Pediatric Pulse™

Pulsation Low Air Loss

Pediatric Pulse is a low air loss pulsation therapy mattress system designed specifically for pressure ulcer/injury treatment and prevention in infants, children and adolescents. It comes in multiple sizes and fits most cribs and Med-Surg beds. The top cover fabric is free from harmful chemicals of concern, plus is vapor-permeable, low-friction and anti-shear.

Pediatric Pressure Injuries

Pediatric patients suffer from pressure injuries just like older patients, and certain pediatric populations — ECMO, preemies and neonates, burn patients and more — are at an even greater risk for skin breakdown due to mobility, sensory perception, friction/shear and moisture. However, most PI prevention mattresses for adults are not designed to accommodate pediatric patients. Pediatric Pulse provides effective pressure injury prevention and treatment for patients as small as 1.6 pounds.

Low Air Loss

Pediatric Pulse's low air loss mattress has laser-drilled micro holes in the air cells which continually blow out air via the powered control unit. As a result, moisture is wicked away and the patient stays dry and cool for improved microclimate.

Pulsation Therapy

Pulsation mode adds gentle stimulation that helps increase capillary blood flow to the skin. This in turn supplies greater oxygen and nutrients to the tissue for improved skin integrity.

Key Features

The top cover is made of a polyurethane-coated nylon fabric. This advanced material creates a surface that is vapor permeable, low friction and anti-shear for improved skin care.

The surface's fabrics are free from of latex and harmful chemicals, and they have been produced with non-hazardous fire-retardant materials making it the safe choice for your most vulnerable patient population.

Pediatric Pulse comes in two configurations: crib size (1.6 - 100 pounds) and Med-Surg bed size (35 - 200 pounds). Patients needing greater capacity should graduate to the adult-sized Pulsate™ support surface.

PI Prevention/Treatment



Developed Alongside Pediatric Clinicians

Pediatric Pulse was the result of a unique collaboration between Agiliti and the University of Oklahoma Children’s Hospital. They identified a need and worked alongside our designers and engineers to develop a mattress specifically for pressure ulcer/injury treatment and prevention in infants, children and adolescents.
