Why the Stabilo Grande Armadillo? Parents or carers often use the Stabilo Grande mattress for long-term lying or even sleeping. Unfortunately lying in the same body position for many hours on the mattress can become uncomfortable, since a good support equals a hard surface - resulting in the possible development of bed sores. That is the reason for which we designed a new pressure-relief comfortable mattress. The Grande Armadillo.

How the Grande Armadillo works: The alternating pressure technology gives the best results in bed sores prevention. It allows for shifting supporting areas and pressure level. The pump inflates and deflates the air – the supporting areas change all the time and as a result bed sores don’t occur. Choose between soft and hard versions – even when the bubbles are hard, a person lays on a big surface in comfort. The body is continuously and regularly massaged. The temperature on the surface of the mattress equals room temperature. So instead of 36.6 °C (body temperature) we can achieve ap. 23 °C which also helps to protect against the development of bed sores.

Pressure reduction and relief of sensitive areas
The user is wrapped up with a bigger surface of the mattress so the body weight is distributed across a larger area
Support in proper blood circulation
The pump inflates and deflates the chambers of the mattress which helps to aid blood circulation
Provision of comfort
The insert favours an optimal body posture. It also has mechano-therapeutic effects thanks to body massaging - reducing painful muscle tone, joints stiffness and pain
Excessive body temperature results in increased body moisture and this is a dangerous risk factor for developing bed sores
The system pumps air at room temperature through the mattress. This air absorbs heat from user’s body and then the silent pump removes it off the mattress. The skin temperature is then maintained at low level, protecting the skin from sweating and maceration
Regular manual change of patient’s body position is now not necessary

  • “It is obvious that the Grande is being used all the time, not left under the bed or in a corner as previous pieces of equipment have been. Having the right equipment available to allow Ellie to have regular time out of her chair as part of her 24-hour postural management programme has already been beneficial and positive for Ellie. Improvement have been seen in her levels of fatigue, spasticity and dystonia in the short time that Ellie has had the Grande. It’s easier for her support worker to help Ellie to do her stretches, as it’s more comfortable for Ellie than lying on the floor. Improvements in her lower limb range of movement has also been noted subjectively. She is less fatigued, and there’s been a positive impact on her behaviour as she’s not so frustrated, nor impacted so much by postural fatigue or discomfort.”

  • “The Grande is the only thing we’ve found that means we can stretch her out properly for her physiotherapy and support her comfortably. In everything else we’ve tried she curls in on herself. We use it in lots of ways- for her physio, and relaxation. We can put an assistive technology device underneath, so she can feel the sound vibrations. There are so many ways we can use it, especially as it’s so lightweight: we can move it wherever we need it!”
