Z-FLO FLUIDIZED POSITIONERS – FOR BED SORES & SKIN INJURIES

Patient positioning and repositioning is recommended as part of a successful pressure ulcer prevention protocol. Mölnlycke® Z-Flo® Fluidized Positioners are moldable to conform to and support the patient’s body in a desired position until time to reposition again.

Z-Flo Fluidized Positioners facilitate the redistribution of pressure over a greater surface area. The fluidized Z-Flo positioners offer ‘mold and hold’ support, conformed to patient anatomy, without flattening or returning to their former shape. Z-Flo is designed to offer continuous protection by holding the patient in the desired protective position over a period of time. When used as a part of an overall turning protocol, Z-Flo, once molded, will hold its shape until remolded. Z-Flo is designed to be molded away from or around vulnerable areas, such as ears or existing wounds, as well as medical devices, and is available in a range of sizes to accommodate multiple anatomical sites and clinical scenarios

  • Conforms to and supports the patient’s body into desired position until next reposition
  • Enables various degrees of turn when positioning a patient
  • Redistributes pressure over a greater surface area
  • Won’t flatten or heat up like rolled towels and blankets
  • Molds and holds – molds to individual patient and anatomic shapes and holds until repositioned
  • For single patient use only, but can travel with one patient across care continuum
  • One study with healthy volunteers found that Z-Flo reduced the exposure of occipital tissues to peak stresses by up to 65% when compared to medical foam
  • One study showed a statistically significant reduction in occipital PU’s by 87.7% during one year when compared to the use of pillows for intensive care patients
  • Safe for use in CT and MRI
