This document applies to the safety of APTI, which make claims to redistribute the load of the full body, remain in situ during periods of lying, and to prevent and/or treat pressure injuries.

This document covers a range of different lying support surfaces intended to be used in combination with the appropriate support platform or as a whole integrated system.

This document also covers assistive products primarily intended for tissue integrity for changing a lying position and assistive products for maintaining a lying position.

This document does not apply to lying support surfaces used in combination with incubators.

This document will address the combination of a full body support surface and an adjustable mattress support platform. Safety and performance test methods to ensure protection against injuries to the user are the aspects that this document will cover.

This document specifies requirements and test methods for assistive products within the following divisions of ISO 9999:2016:

04 33 06 Assistive products for tissue integrity (APTI) when lying down:
