Log-roll patient and apply deflated Mattress. Ensure that the patient is in the centre of the mattress and feet are at the Foot End. 2. Click patient safety straps together, allowing sufficient length for the Airpod to inflate. Do not use these straps to transfer patient. 3. Plug the Air Supply Unit (Air Blower) into the power outlet and insert the Air Hose into ONE of the air inlet pockets found at the foot end of the mattress. Connect the popper. Secure the Velcro Flap to the Inlet Pocket. 4. For th transfer, make sure the transfer surfaces are as close as possible. Adjust surface heights to be level. A transfer board (bridge) should be used but the Air Mattress will function without the bridge provided the gap is not too large and a full risk assessment has been carried out ** - see below. Engage all brakes. 5. Prior to any manoeuvre, confirm that there is no obstruction in the path of the mattress for the manoeuvre/ transfer. Ensure that all patient support systems are free to travel with the patient, and the care staff are in position and trained in the procedure. 6. Turn the Air Supply ON.
