- Important Information
The Thermoregulating (TR) Mattress Topper is designed for people may not be able to control their body temperature when sleeping. This may be due to a number of reasons that may include:
- A reaction to medication
- A physical disability that prevents someone from removing the bed blankets
- A personal condition such as a form of Hyperhidrosis, etc.
Pelican’s Thermoregulating range of items includes:
- Thermoregulating Top Sheet
- Thermoregulating Duvet Insert
- Thermoregulating Pillow Cover (We highly recommend this as the head and neck are areas which can sweat a lot)
- Thermoregulating Slippers
About the Thermoregulating Material
The TR Material was first developed to help astronauts in space maintain their body temperature. The material should help to ‘keep cool people warm’ and ‘keep warm people cool’. The material allows heat from the body to escape and if the body is getting cold, it traps the warmth of the body. Many people who are under cancer treatment such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy (radiation therapy) may find a benefit from the cooling material.
Place the Mattress Topper on the mattress. The four elastic corner straps are long enough to fit very deep mattresses . Fit the elastic straps under the corners of the mattress and adjust the elastic using the buckle to make a secure fit. Do not over tighten the elastic straps so the elastic will be able to expand when the person gets into bed.
When fitting be aware that the TR Mattress Topper material does not have any stretch properties, so the material may crease up under the patient. The benefit of stopping perspiration may be more beneficial for the patient without comprising pressure care. After using, as normal good nursing practice, the patient’s skin integrity should always be checked.
As the reason why people perspire can vary a lot, we cannot guarantee the TR Material will work for everyone. We are unable to accept the items back for credit if they do not work, because of cross infection.
The Thermoregulating material is a delicate material that wears out more quickly than other materials. See the Important Information tab before ordering for more information.

Wash up to 80°C (176°F). Air or tumble dry on a cool setting, ensuring the drum is cool. Ensure the product is dry before using or storing. We recommend using a Pelican Washing Bag to help contain the product.
General Warning: Be aware that this item may mask the effects if someone does get an infection. Always check with a medical therapist that this item will be suitable.
Material Warning: The Thermo Regulating material is a delicate material that wears out more quickly than other materials. The wear can be due to normal use, as well as the washing process.The material can stretch and distort, so the material opens between the rows of the Thermo Regulating cells. This looks ugly and will increase in size over time. Despite the damage, the Thermo Regulating qualities should still help people control their temperature. To help prevent this damage, always use a large washing bag, such as the Pelican Washing Bag, when washing the product. The washing bag is designed to help protect the material from getting damaged with other items in the washing machine, and from being directly next to the drum and agitators in the machine. Remember that except for the Thermo Regulating Slipper product, Thermo Regulating material should never be directly next to the person’s body when in use. The person should never lie directly on or under the Thermo Regulating Material, as this can also damage the material.
Warranty: All Thermo Regulating products have a 3 month repair or replacement warranty, providing the product is washed in a washing bag.
