This document specifies general requirements and related test methods that are relevant to assistive products for tissue integrity (APTI) in the lying position in different application environments such as hospitals, home care and institutions. This document applies to the safety of APTI, which are intended to 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 addresses the combination of a full body support surface and an adjustable mattress support platform. It also covers safety and performance test methods to ensure protection against injuries to the user.
This document specifies requirements and test methods for APTI within the following classifications of ISO 9999:2016:
04 33 06 Assistive products for tissue integrity when lying down such as but not limited to:
— Mattresses and mattress overlays for pressure injury prevention;
— Mattress coverings for pressure injury prevention mattresses.
12 31 03 Assistive products for sliding and turning such as but not limited to:
Devices for changing position or direction of a person using sliding or turning techniques. The only products included are those intended to be used in a lying position and remain in situ as part of the lying support surface. They are the following:
— sliding products that glide one way and lock the other way;
— sheets and underlays in flexible materials with low friction;
— fabric sold by the metre, cut as required for repositioning use;
— powered turning product;
This excludes sliding boards unless the produc ...

This document specifies the performance requirements and test methods for hollow devices and porous devices as well as the indicators that are utilized within these devices for testing a specific steam penetration performance of type B cycles and some type S cycles of small steam sterilizers that comply with EN 13060. The suitability of the hollow and porous devices described in this document as surrogate devices for hollow and porous medical devices used in health care facilities is not substantiated. Chemical indicators used with a porous device specified in this document are designed to demonstrate the adequacy of steam penetration into a porous device in small steam sterilizers (see EN 13060). The relevant sections of this document covering porous loads specify the requirements for: a) a reference porous device as a reference device by which alternative porous indicator systems can be shown to be equivalent in performance according to this document, i.e. a textile test pack in which steam penetration is judged by thermometric means; b) an alternative porous indicator system equivalent in performance to the reference porous device, i.e. an alternative porous indicator system, usually commercially manufactured, of any design. Chemical indicators used with a hollow load device specified in this document are designed to demonstrate the adequacy of steam penetration into a narrow lumen (previously known as hollow load A) in small steam sterilizers (see EN 13060). The relevant sections of this document covering hollow loads specify the requirements for: a) a reference hollow device used as a reference device in this document, i.e. a lumened device with attached capsule in which steam penetration is judged by inactivation or survival of a specified biological indicator; b) an alternative hollow device: i. employing the same specific test load as defined for the reference hollow device and a chemical indicator designed specifically for use in the reference hollow test load, i.e. a lumened device with an attached capsule in which steam penetration is judged by visual examination of a chemical indicator; ii. equivalent in performance to the reference hollow device, i.e. an alternative hollow device, usually commercially manufactured, of any design.
