The Burnett Vacuum Support System consists of a sealed casing appliance of flexible Polyurethane material which is high frequency welded and filled with thousands of flame retardant polystyrene micro beads.
The system is designed to provide comfortable support by moulding the beads (with air present) to the profile of the user, which creates a custom intimate mould.
Extracting the air from the system causes the casing to contract and the beads static nature brings them together to form a mould.
By introducing air back into the system the Burnett is able to adapt over time to any changes in profile.

Our Burnett Vacuum Support System was developed to provide postural support in bathing situations and this is our most popular range.
Often bathing is the most difficult area to overcome in terms of clients with additional needs.
