Envella® Air Fluidized Therapy Bed (RENTAL ONLY)

Accelerating wound healing. Elevating the standard of care.


Patients with complex wounds need elevated care. So, we designed the Envella® Air Fluidized Therapy (AFT) Bed as our most advanced wound care surface to date. The Envella® bed can help your patients heal more quickly and comfortably. It pushes air through millions of tiny beads, creating a fluid-like environment that feels similar to floating on water. This action boosts immersion and envelopment, minimizes shear and pressure, and helps control the skin’s microclimate.

Compared to powered air surfaces like the Joerns® Dolphin FIS® mattress, our Envella® bed may offer your patient:1

  • Up to 33% better pressure redistribution
  • Up to 61 times greater evaporative capacity
  • Up to 92% better shear performance

This healing environment is proven to enhance outcomes for a broad range of high-acuity wound cases:

  • Flap and Graft Healing in a Post-Op Study 16 flap patients were placed on AFT immediately after their operations. 94% developed no complications.2
  • Preventing DTI Deterioration in an Acute Care Study AFT helped to prevent Stage 3-4 pressure injuries in 100% of patients with DTIs, which resulted in reduced costs.3
  • Accelerating Pressure Injury Healing in a Long-Term Care Study Of 664 nursing home patients, those with Stage 3-4 pressure injuries who were placed on AFT healed 4.4 times faster and had 2.6 times fewer hospitalizations, compared to those who were placed on alternating pressure surfaces.4
  • Our Envella® AFT bed offers key improvements over its predecessors.

Elevate Your Patient's Comfort

  • The Envella® bed’s auto-leveling bead bath and reinforced side bolsters help keep your patients from bottoming out
  • Adjustable firmness in the transition between the bead bath and the head section can keep your patients in the best—and most comfortable—position
  • The AFT air flow can be quickly modified
  • Adjustable comfort zones in the head section redistribute weight-based pressure
  • Enhanced temperature controls quickly heat or cool the bead bath

Elevate Your Patient's Safety

  • A bed exit alarm (with alert silence) helps protect your fall-risk patients
  • Side/Surface transfer deflates the bed’s head and side bolsters to help you move patients more easily and safely
  • A head-of-bed angle indicator and alert help you monitor your patients for pulmonary complications Elevate Your Care Team's Productivity
  • The bed's touchscreen controls are simple and intuitive
  • Self-standing siderails and hooks for cord wrapping help your team to work safely and efficiently
  • An integrated scale lets you weigh your patient in the bed, without disrupting the wound site
  • High-quality casters and foot pedal braking make the Envella® bed easy to maneuver
