Technical Advantages


GREENLINE© mattresses are made of ECOLAST® foam. Compared to conventional decubitus therapy mattresses (standard foam mattresses or alternating pressure mattresses) they have less CO2 emission.

ECOLAST® foam is a specially developed hybrid foam. Compared to standard foam,  the more open cell structure ensures improved air circulation, so that the patient benefits from an optimal microclimate.

ECOLAST® foam offers perfect pressure relief and an improved durability.
