True Low Air Loss Mattress for Bed Sores 

Air Loss Mattress for Bed Sores Bed sores, also known as pressure sores, are a common problem for bedridden patients. They are caused by prolonged pressure on the skin, leading to tissue death and infection. Low air loss mattresses are a type of medical mattress specifically designed to help prevent and treat bed sores.  Here is an example of a top quality bed sore mattress that we suggest for most patients: Professional low air loss mattress

Low air loss mattresses use air cells to create a cushioning effect between the patient and the mattress. This cushioning helps to reduce the amount of pressure on the skin, thus reducing the risk of bed sore development. The cells are also designed to allow air to circulate, helping to keep the skin cool, dry, and free from moisture.

Low air loss mattresses are also designed to be adjustable. This allows the mattress to be tailored to the patients individual body shape and size, helping to reduce the risk of bed sores even further. Some low air loss mattresses also have the ability to be programmed to provide alternating pressure, which helps to reduce the risk of tissue breakdown. When using a low air loss mattress, it is important to follow the health care providers instructions for use. Regularly turning and repositioning the patient on the mattress is essential.
