The Dolphin Fluid Immersion Simulation (FIS) System represents an advanced therapeutic solution, aiming to achieve cutting-edge pressure redistribution by emulating the experience of being immersed in a fluid medium. Through its automated process, the Dolphin System precisely assesses the unique characteristics of each patient, generating a personalized immersion profile that promotes a state of nearly neutral buoyancy. By utilizing three-dimensional volumetric engagement and eliminating gradient shear forces, this technology yields favorable results for procedures like flaps, grafts, and pressure ulcers.
The Dolphin FIS System's exceptional design ensures minimal tissue deformation and facilitates near-normal blood flow, contributing to improved tissue perfusion and accelerated wound healing.
- One-of-a-Kind: Therapeutic mattress uses Laser doppler analysis to redistributes pressure allowing normal blood flow and promoting healing.
- Wound Treatment: Prevents and treats wounds by simulating immersion of the patient in a fluid medium.
- Soft Tissue Blood Flow Treatment: Minimizes soft tissue deformation and maintains near normal blood flow
- Automated: Automatically adjusts to each patient’s weight, surface area, and repositioning
- Long Battery Life: 12-hour battery life allows for active therapy, even during patient transport
- Existing Bedframe: Fits existing bed frames, including ICU, Med/Surg, and Bariatric
- Different Models: Available in standard, bariatric, and pediatric models, as well as wheelchair and stretcher configurations
- FIS Technology: The Dolphin System's Fluid Immersion Simulation technology minimizes soft tissue distortion and enhances blood flow, making it an exceptionally effective platform for preventing and healing pressure ulcers up to Stage IV. Additionally, it offers effective treatment for patients recovering from post-operative flaps and grafts.
- Repositioning: The Dolphin FIS System can be employed for patients who cannot be turned or repositioned due to their medical condition or when such interventions could pose risks of further compromise. It is also suitable for patients with stabilized spinal cord injuries, as long as they have received clearance from a physician. However, it is important to note that Joerns clinical indications are only guidelines and should be considered as recommendations during the individual patient assessment by the clinician.

The Dolphin FIS Mattress Replacement from Joerns Healthcare is an advanced therapy system that imitates the effects of being submerged in fluid to redistribute pressure. It minimizes soft tissue distortion and maintains near-normal blood flow, effectively preventing and treating wounds.
The system has a user-friendly therapy control unit with easy-to-read graphics for simple operation. The control unit automatically adjusts the mattress to fit the patient's body, providing an optimized three-dimensional support surface. It constantly monitors and adjusts the support surface to accommodate patient movements.
The Dolphin FIS targets crucial aspects of treating compromised skin, like pressure redistribution, friction reduction, and shearing force reduction. It effectively treats various conditions, including amputations, burns, grafts, flaps, and pressure ulcers. Additionally, it offers pain relief for patients with AIDS, arthritis, and undergoing oncology treatment.
The mattress is made of smooth nylon fabric with low friction and shear properties, safeguarding patients' skin and maintaining dryness.
For safety, the system includes an alarm and LED notification in case of a fault. It also has a rechargeable battery backup that powers the control unit for up to 12 hours in case of disconnection or power failure.
