Pressure Relief Mattresses
Pressure Mattresses for Bed Sore Prevention
Pressure relief management is an essential part of care. Patients with limited mobility may be required to spend a lot more time in bed than the average person, and this can put them at greater risk of developing pressure ulcers or bed sores. Investing in pressure relief mattresses can protect the patients in your care and keep them comfortable. They are a front-line preventative method, designed to evenly distribute weight and reduce or eliminate pressure placed on sensitive areas.
When purchasing a pressure relieving mattress, you should consider whether you should choose a static, alternating or hybrid design:
Static: made with a pressure relieving foam, we supply options to suit low, medium and high-risk patients.
Alternating: an alternating mattress is made from air cells which are operated by a specialist pump. When some air cells inflate, others deflate. This completely removes pressure from these areas while keeping the patient comfortable. An alternating pressure mattress is best suited to high and very high-risk patients, and many can be used in a static mode for a truly hybrid design.
