constant set patient comfort pressure, and the even numbered air cushions deflate to
0%, 25%, 50% or 75% of the set patient comfort high pressure in the first half of the AP
cycle and vice versa for the second half of the cycle, and continue back and forth. On
the K-0CS control unit the low AP can be factory set to 50% or 75% of the high AP
pressure.
PATIENT COMFORT CONTROL LEVEL (CC)
The K-0 series system is designed for patients weighing between 35  450 lbs. (15 Kg.  205
Kg.). Using the comfort control:
a. Pressing the
SOFT
key (K) towards pressure setting 0 position reduces the pressure
setting, pressing the
FIRM key (K) towards pressure setting 9 position increases the
pressure. The patient comfort pressure ranges from SOFT 8  5 mmHg to FIRM 32  5
mmHg on mattress systems, and on the chair pad systems custom pressure ranges
from SOFT 10  5 mmHg to FIRM 110  10 mmHg. Depending on the desired patient
comfort level the micro-controller / sensors will set appropriate air pressure in the
mattress, and maintain the desired pressure in the mattress.
b. This procedure can only be checked on the K-0 and the K-0oem mattresses systems.
Once the mattress is inflated to its normal size with the patient lying on it, set the
COMFORT CONTROL SETTING to the desired patient comfort level. Wait for the
mattress pressure to stabilize. Verify the appropriate pressure required to support the
patient by performing a simple “four finger check”.
Page 28 of 39
Ensure that the patient is lying flat on his or her back in the middle of the mattress.
Place four fingers between the air cushions directly underneath the sacral region of the
patient’s body. There should be a minimum of four fingers width clearance between the
bottom of the patient and the safety foam base. Repeat this procedure until the desired
patient comfort pressure is achieved. (This does not apply to overlay mattress.)
RECOMMENDED PRESSURE SETTINGS
a. For rapid inflation of the mattress press (Max Inflate) key and activate “Max Inflate” (W)
LED.
b. For extra firm support during patient ingress/egress, patient wound care, patient turning,
or patient cleaning, it is recommended to set the mattress pressure to Max Inflate (W).
c. If a patient’s weight to height ratio is above average, it is recommended to set the
comfort control to 20% more than the set pressure level.
ON-DEMAND LOW AIR LOSS (K-0 Elite Only)
To activate Low Air Loss mode (AL) please press
(FN) key. The Low Air Loss (AL)
LED will light up. In this mode the patient will receive low air loss relief. If the mattress
contains the optional Low Air Loss Top Sheet the low air loss relief is administered directly
underneath the patient in a special multi-chamber air distribution layer in the top sheet.
UPRIGHT (U) (K-0 Elite mattress systems only)
Press UPRIGHT key to light up UPRIGHT LED. In this mode pressures in the entire mattress
will be increased to higher than the set comfort pressure level. This enables the patient to be
supported without bottoming out.
