Importance of Air Permeability:

Many patients require the use of specialty support surfaces such as low air-loss mattresses. Using an air-permeable drypad such as Ultrasorbs AP Disposable Underpad helps maximize air circulation, drying the skin and reducing potential maceration from moisture buildup.

  • Super absorbent core draws in moisture and locks it away from skin
  • Maintains core integrity, reducing friction and shear
  • Ultra-soft, non-woven topsheet for greater patient comfort
  • Air-permeable backsheet for exceptional skin dryness with zero strike through
  • Micro-pore film protects against leakage for fewer linen changes without double-padding


  • Open airing/incontinence management
  • ER/OR for absorbing significant or ongoing fluid loss
  • ICU/CCU patients who should not be disrupted
  • Any other area where skin dryness is needed

10-Minute Test for Dryness:

Ability of a drypad to withstand multiple insults is determined using the “rewet” test. The test is done by pouring 500 milliliters of water onto a drypad, waiting 10 minutes and then measuring how much water returns to the surface. The lower the number, the drier against patient skin.
