Innovative solutions to meet your safe patient handling needs

HoverTech is the world leader in air-assisted safe patient handling. Offering a complete portfolio of patient transfer, repositioning and handling products which reduce caregiver injury, while increasing patient comfort and safety.

As the exclusive agent for HoverTech in New Zealand, Active Healthcare is committed to providing innovative solutions to meet your safe patient handling needs.

HoverMatt is the number one choice of hospitals for lateral patient transfers and patient repositioning. With the revolutionary HoverMatt Air Transfer System, the mattress – and the patient – float on a cushion of air, so caregivers can safely transfer, boost, turn and reposition patients without lifting or straining.

HoverMatt reduces the pull force required to move a patient by 80-90%, requiring fewer caregivers and reducing the risk of injury to staff.

By virtually eliminating injuries related to lateral transfers and repositioning, the HoverMatt Air Transfer System significantly helps to improve staff retention, while meeting guidelines for safe patient handling.

HoverMatt further addresses infection control and reprocessing concerns with the HoverMatt Single Patient Use Air Transfer System, significantly reducing the possibility of cross contamination and the need for outside laundering.

More important reasons to choose the HoverMatt Air Transfer Mattress:

  • Air-assisted technology improves patient and caregiver safety and comfort during transfers
  • HoverMatt absorbs 80-90% of a patients weight
  • Inflated mattress moves patient in stable position, reducing skin shear and bruising
  • Heat-sealed construction eliminates needle holes that are potential bacteria pathways
  • Radiolucent and MRI compatible for artefact-free imaging
  • Available in multiple styles and widths with a 544kg weight limit to accommodate most patients
  • Variable speed air supply provides quieter and slower inflation options.
