Introducing the Next Generation of Skin Integrity Maintenance and Pressure Ulcer Prevention/Treatment

Pressure ulcers affect an estimated 1 million adults in the United States annually, and over $6 billion is spent annually on treatment.1  Ventopedic Technology promotes healing, reduces the risk of infection and prevents the enlargement of existing wounds.

Inside Ventopedic

  - Stays dry, cool and comfortable
  - Has no loss of effectiveness
  - No assembly required

What is Ventopedic Technology?

Ventopedic technology is a unique moisture transport system designed to maintain skin integrity. Ventopedic products effectively draw moisture away from the skin, while the 3D structure reduces risk of infection and promotes healing.

What makes Ventopedic products so unique?

The fabric functionality behind each Ventopedic product is like no other on the market today. What makes Ventopedic unique is the ventilated cushioning fabric and 3D design that allows moisture to wick away, evaporate, and not be absorbed. Others claim to have products that draw moisture or perspiration away from the skin, but the moisture remains inside the products. That is where Ventopedic Technology is differ­ent! Our clinical test results confirm that the Ventopedic concept will remain dry even under elevated humid­ity conditions.


Ventopedic products do not contain any foam, gel, or plastic (found in most competitive products that leads to heat, moisture and odor)


All Ventopedic products are machine washable

  - Washing Temp: 160 - 167°F (75°C)
  - Drying Temp: Up to 220°F (104°C)

Material Content: 90% Polyester, 10% Cotton (may vary slightly in products where Spandex is required)
