AFFINITY BIRTHING MATTRESSES
Our mattresses are direct replacements for Hill-Rom’s Affinity birthing stretchers, and include the correctly-placed snaps and hook-and-loop fasteners to keep them in place. We offer the main and foot sections separately so you can replace only what’s needed.
WATERFALL ZIPPER FLAP
The patented waterfall zipper flap covers the zipper, so fluids pass over it without absorbing into the mattress.
RF WELDED SEAMS
Rather than a sewn seam, our seams are sealed using radio frequency welding to prevent fluid ingress.
Polyurethane film is used as a moisture vapor barrier sheet between the foam core and the top cover.
All our mattresses are accurately made to be a perfect fit on your stretchers.
Our breathable, two-way stretch fabric gives added comfort and durability, and also prevents “hammocking,” allowing for easier patient transfer.
MADE IN THE USA
All of our mattresses are manufactured in the USA.
FIVE YEAR WARRANTY
We stand behind all our birthing mattresses with a five year warranty.
The clamshell zipper goes around three sides, making replacement of the cover easy.
PATIENT WEIGHT LIMIT
This mattress provides support to patients of up to 350 pounds without the patient resting on the stretcher frame.

Stretcher mattress disinfection is an important part of any hospital’s infection control program. But the harsh chemicals that are used can damage the mattress over time. Follow these tips to get the most out of your stretcher mattresses.
FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS
Make sure you follow the instructions not just for whichever cleaning agent you’re using, but for the mattress itself. Not all mattresses are compatible with all common disinfectants, and using the wrong one can damage the mattress over time.
DILUTE IF NECESSARY
Some disinfectants are intended to be diluted before use. Using them at full strength can shorten the life of the mattress.
WAIT OUT THE “DWELL TIME”
The instructions for the disinfectant may mention the “dwell time”. This is the amount of time that a surface must remain wet to allow the chemical to be in contact with an organism in order to kill it. Make sure you let the disinfectant do its job before wiping it off.
RINSING IS A MUST
After the dwell time has been achieved, immediately rinse the surface with clean
