The Protekt 500 with (VGPT) Visco Gel Polymer Technology is a  revolutionary support surface that provides unprecedented pressure redistribution, rapid heat dissipation, and vast increases in breathability compared to traditional foam. VGPT is open-cell Visco Memory foam infused with gel Polymers. Designed for clinical superiority as well as patient comfort. (VGPT) Visco Gel Polymer Technology works by allowing air to pass through open cells, channeling it away from the body instead of trapping it within the closed cells of standard memory foam.

The infusion of gel polymers throughout the foam contributes both cooling properties and the virtual elimination of static fatigue. As a result of the alliance between open cell foam and gel infusion, the Protekt 500 holds its shape better, redistributes pressure over a larger surface area, and successfully channels heat away from the body, keeping patients cool, dry, and comfortable. The heel section of the Protekt 500 provides unparalleled pressure mapping results. Designed to guard the vulnerable heel area from incapacitating reoccurring pressure ulcers, the heel section of the Protekt 500 utilizes a 30 degree slope to redistribute pressure to the entire lower leg, the top layer is finished with Lura-Quilt, a patented, highly resilient aerated foam, keeping skin cool and dry.

The mattress is 6” thick. There is an option for raised rails which effectively raises the height of the perimeter of the mattress by 3” to be 9” high. The industry refers to this mattress as 9” even though the sleeping surface is still only 6” thick


  • Heel slope redistributes pressure from heel to the entire leg
  • Precision cut air pockets allows deeper submersion and increased air circulation.
  • Gel infused foam.
  • Reduced occurrence of pressure sores by channeling heat away from the body significantly faster than traditional foam, virtually eliminating perspiration.
  • Superior pressure redistribution is delivered by providing more support and less cradling at higher levels of compression, redistributing pressure over a large surface area eliminating static fatigue.
  • Protects vulnerable heel area with the patented Lure-Quilt foam and a 30 degree slope redistributing pressure to the entire leg and away from the heel.
