We have various air mattress pressure care products to meet each customer’s unique needs and preferences. Each mattress is designed to be an excellent pressure solution for multi-use in hospitals, nursing homes, and home care environments. 

Pressure ulcers are the parts of the skin that have been exposed to significant amounts of pressure, causing the skin and tissue to become damaged. This continuous pressure on a vulnerable body part, such as the elbows, causes the cutting off of circulation and the decay of the part.  

Furthermore, various patients have different degrees of risk of pressure sores. These include skin integrity and mobility. There are different severities of pressure ulcers of which can be divided into four primary grades. 

  • Grade 1. This involves the reddening of the skin 
  • Grade 2. This involves a superficial blister-like wound 
  • Grade 3. Here, all the layers of the skin are damaged together with the tissues under the skin 
  • Grade 4. Skin and underlying tissues are highly damaged together with joints, tendons, muscles, or bone. 

A pressure mattress or a pressure care air mattress is made to improve comfort for a person suffering from pressure sores. The mattress offers incredible levels of support for the body and head to remove any additional stress on the pressure joints. A pressure mattress is different from a normal mattress because they contain a crucially designed air pocket, precisely made to put less pressure on the significant pressure points on the body. 

The following are among the significant benefits of an air mattress for pressure ulcers. 

  • Enhanced blood circulation. A pressure mattress improves blood circulation and relieves pressure on the user. Also, since it is possible to change pressure points by changing the user’s position, they offer a fresh feeling. 
  • Alternate pressure points. A pressure mattress lets the patient’s body move comfortably. And since this is possible to change the pressure points such that the person’s body is in motion, it is more likely that the user who uses a pressure mattress will get painful bed sores or sore skin. 
  • Low -air loss technology. The manufactures of our pressure mattresses imbue these products with the most advanced and latest technology. These pressure mattresses have hundreds of holes that allow small amounts of air to be released. This air removal leaves the user feeling like they are floating on air and keeps them cool when sleeping. 
  • Convenience. Pressure mattresses can be utilized at home and in the hospital. These pressure mattresses are more comfortable and easier to use, unlike regular heavy mattresses. 

We can assist you when selecting the best quality pressure mattresses,  air mattresses for pressure ulcers, and the best alternating pressure mattresses. Please ensure you contact our Customer Service team for advice.
