1. Lateral Turning Mattress - Learn More

A lateral turning mattress is engineered to automatically reposition the patient at set intervals. This type of mattress is particularly beneficial for patients who are unable to move independently. By gently rolling the patient from side to side, it mimics the natural movements of the body, enhancing blood circulation and significantly reducing the risk of pressure ulcers. This proactive approach to patient care helps in maintaining skin integrity and promoting a more comfortable healing process.

2. Alternating Pressure Mattress - Learn More

Designed with a series of air cells that inflate and deflate in a rhythmic pattern, an alternating pressure mattress redistributes pressure across the body at regular intervals. This continuous change in pressure points ensures that no single part of the body bears the brunt of pressure for too long, thereby reducing the risk of pressure sores. It's ideal for patients with limited mobility or those at high risk for developing bedsores.

3. Low Air Loss Mattress - Learn More

A low air loss mattress utilizes a system of air-filled channels that are designed to gently blow air across the surface of the mattress. This creates a cooling environment that helps to keep the skin dry and comfortable, making it especially useful for patients who have moisture management issues or are prone to sweating. The constant air flow not only offers comfort but also aids in the prevention of pressure ulcers by maintaining a consistent temperature and moisture level on the skin's surface.

4. Continuous Low Pressure Mattress - Learn More

This type of mattress is designed to distribute a patient's weight evenly across its surface, thereby minimizing pressure points that can lead to the development of bedsores. The continuous low pressure mattress adapts to the contours of the patient's body, ensuring that pressure is equally dispersed and not concentrated in any single area. It's particularly effective for patients who require extended periods of bed rest and need additional support to protect their skin.

5. Automatic Pressure Relieving Mattress - Learn More

The automatic pressure relieving mattress is equipped with sensors that continuously monitor the patient's pressure points and automatically adjust the mattress's firmness and position to alleviate pressure. This intelligent mattress system can preemptively respond to the needs of the patient, offering personalized support and significantly reducing the risk of bedsores. It represents a combination of technology and patient care, offering an advanced solution for wound prevention and management.

6. Pulsation mattress - Learn More

A specialized medical solution designed to prevent and treat bed sores by generating gentle, rhythmic pulsations that mimic natural body movements, thus promoting blood circulation and reducing pressure points. It features customizable settings to adjust the pulsation intensity and frequency, catering to individual patient needs for comfort and therapeutic benefits. Ideal for patients with limited mobility or those recovering from surgery, this mattress not only aids in the prevention of pressure ulcers but also supports the healing process of existing sores, offering an optimal blend of comfort and care in a single innovative design.

6. Non-powered air mattress - Learn More

A type of medical mattress designed to provide support and comfort to individuals who are bedridden or at risk of developing pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores. Unlike its powered counterparts that require electricity to function, a non-powered air mattress operates without the use of motors or pumps, making it a more accessible and low-maintenance option for wound care and prevention.

The design of a non-powered air mattress typically involves a series of interconnected air cells or chambers that are manually inflated with air to a prescribed pressure. This manual inflation allows the mattress to be customized to the specific needs and weight of the patient, ensuring an even distribution of pressure across the body. The goal is to minimize pressure points, particularly in areas prone to bedsores, such as the heels, sacrum, and elbows.

Each of these wound care mattresses plays a crucial role in patient care, offering unique benefits aimed at enhancing comfort, preventing complications, and promoting healing. Whether it's through automatic repositioning, pressure redistribution, air flow regulation, or personalized support, our range of medical wound care mattresses ensures that patients receive the best care possible, tailored to their specific needs.
