FEATURES

  • Alleviates Pressure Spots And Bedsores
    Designed to be used in the prevention, treatment, and management of pressure ulcers, spots, and bedsores, the 5” alternating pressure mattress is made up of 16 sealed air chambers that utilize a variable pressure pump to alleviate pressure points on patients or loved ones who have limited mobility or are bedfast. 
  • Variable Pressure And Firmness
    Customize the overall amount of air pressure for personal comfort with the pressure dial located on the pump. Adjust the setting from soft to firm depending on your personal preference. 
  • Ultra-Quiet Pump
    The variable pressure pump is ultra-quiet to ensure a peaceful rest. Easy to adjust, the pump displays current air pressure firmness ensuring settings remain consistent. The pressure pump has two non-marking hooks that allow the pump to be easily attached to the foot of the bed.
  • Waterproof Vinyl Cover
    Protecting the pressure mattress, a latex-free, waterproof vinyl cover easily slips over the air cells. The breathable cover allows heat to dissipate for patient comfort, is easy to clean, and is durably designed, safely supporting up to 320 pounds.

FAQs

  • What is the purpose of an alternating pressure mattress pad?

Providing relief from bed sores and other skin problems caused by extended bed rest, the alternating pressure mattress pad sits on top of your existing mattress and promotes increased circulation while reducing skin breakage. The variable pressure mattress pad evenly distributes body weight to relieve pressure spots for exceptional support and comfort. Perfect for immobilized or weak patients who cannot shift their weight frequently.

  • How do I know if my patient needs an alternating pressure mattress pad?

An alternating pressure mattress pad should be used for patients who are likely to spend more than 15 hours per day in bed or who are classified as medium to high risk of developing pressure ulcers, or bedsores. People at higher risk are typically: seriously ill; not mobile; have spinal cord injury; do not eat a proper diet; wear prostheses; smoke; are incontinent of stool or urine; have diabetes; have COPD or heart failure; have Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or heart failure; or have a broken hip or have had recent hip surgery.

  • What happens if all air is lost due to no electricity, does the mattress deflate?

This is a low-air loss mattress and will stay inflated for up to 24 hours in the instance of a power outage.

  • How do I adjust the firmness or softness of my alternating pressure mattress?

The air pressure can be adjusted using the dial on the air pump to the desired firmness level.
