Hercules DreamTM Sleep Surfaces
The Hercules Dream Gel™ Mattress and Hercules Dream AIR™ Microclimate Mattress both incorporate advanced pressure redistribution technology for patient comfort and care.
The Dream Gel™ Mattress uses innovative open cell technology to maximize patient envelopment while reducing the pressure on individual anatomical areas of the body. This open cell technology also improves air circulation providing a cooler and drier environment for your patient. The unique gel top surface helps dissipate heat buildup providing an increased level of temperature and moisture control to keep the patient protected and comfortable.

Hercules Dream SheetTM
The Hercules Dream Sheet is designed to meet the needs of today’s healthcare patient. The Dream sheet, comprised of 100% synthetic lint-free fibers, creates a soft and comfortable environment for the patient. The Dream Sheet is a low abrasion surface that helps minimize skin irritation. The breathability of the Dream Sheet reduces the risk of heat and moisture buildup under the patient providing a drier alternative to traditional cotton blend sheets.
The Hercules Dream Sheet is twice the length of a standard flat sheet allowing 8 to 10 patient repositionings per use. The sheet fastens into clips along the length of the sleep surface to help keep the sheet aligned during repositioning and to help prevent excess wrinkling underneath the patient.
- Soft fabric provides a comfortable environment for the patient
