Sage Products launched Prevalon Mobile Air Transfer System (MATS) to
provide nurses with a safe and easy way to laterally transfer their
patients. The system uses a patent-pending, dual-inflation design
method that safely cradles and stabilizes the patient first before
rising on a cushion of air, resulting in an easier and more effective patient
transfer. MATS significantly reduces the cumulative effects of handling thousands
of pounds of weight in multiple patient transfers that nurses routinely
experience throughout a typical shift.
