The Theia and Eros dynamic pressure area care family have been developed with flexibility and choice in mind; providing multiple system combinations to meet clinical needs. Moving away from a traditional dedicated pump and dynamic mattress system; Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare have developed mattress and cushion options that are compatible with both the Theia Digital and Eros Dial pumps.

 

With greater emphasis across industry guidance being placed on training and service standardisation; Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare have designed a completely interchangeable system that reduces clinical training on multiple dedicated pumps and dynamic systems, whilst also reducing risks associated with medical devices in use due to standardised training and competency programs. It is widely acknowledged that standardisation of equipment and the implementation of a standard competency-based training program helps to minimise errors and increase patient safety[1].

 

Providing 2:1 alternating therapy, the initial product release includes a Mattress Overlay, an Air on Foam Mattress and an Air on Foam cushion that are all compatible with the Theia Digital and the Eros Dial pumps. Drive DeVilbiss are planning future surfaces to add to this exciting range including a Full Air Mattress, a Hybrid Mattress and a Hybrid Cushion.

 

Theia and Eros are also fully compliant with the requirements for medical electrical equipment and medical electrical systems used in the home healthcare environment standards EN60601-1-11. The requirements of EN60601-1-11 address the uncontrolled electrical installations of the home environment, the lack of formal training of the lay operator, and their level of education. In short, the home healthcare environment requires that extra safety, communication and operational precautions are put in place, to prevent harm from occurring to patients, bystanders and property.

Suspension of RRPs

February 2021 / Other

Following a review of the current extraordinary freight costs and the implementation of temporary surcharges we recommend suspending the use of our Recommended Retail Prices until the global shipping crisis stabilises.

Whilst RRPs are used frequently across our market they are always intended to be used as a guide set by ourselves as a manufacturer and distributor. We want to ensure transparency and fairness with all our customers and hope this allows for more independence whilst we are all impacted by ever-changing external factors. 

In line with our recent temporary freight surcharge we will look to re-instate RRPs as soon as possible.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

If you have any questions relating to the suspension of RRPs please contact your Sales Lead who will be able to advise further.
