Collection: Alternating Pressure Mattresses

 

What Are Alternating Pressure Mattresses?

At their core, alternating pressure mattresses are designed to prevent bed sores (also known as pressure ulcers) by continuously changing the pressure points on a person's body. How do they do this? Through a system of air chambers that inflate and deflate, ensuring that no part of the body bears weight for too long. The movement stimulates blood flow and significantly reduces the risk of skin breakdown.

Types of Alternating Pressure Mattresses

  • Static Air mattresses: Provide a single level of pressure throughout.

  • Dynamic Air mattresses: Adjust pressure levels and patterns to tailor to individual needs.

How Do They Work?

These mattresses use an electric pump to fill and empty air chambers in a cyclical pattern. This rhythmic change in pressure ensures that the body’s weight is redistributed periodically. Most options come with adjustable settings, allowing for customization based on the user's weight, size, and specific medical condition. This adaptability makes alternating pressure mattresses a versatile solution for a wide range of patients at risk of developing bed sores.

The Science Behind the Relief

The technology is rooted in a simple principle: avoiding prolonged pressure on any part of the body helps maintain healthy blood circulation and prevents the skin and underlying tissues from breaking down. Enhancing airflow and adjusting to body movements, alternating pressure mattresses do precisely that.

Benefits Beyond Prevention

While the primary aim of these mattresses is to prevent bed sores, their advantages extend much further.

  • Comfort: The constant adjustment offers a more comfortable resting experience.

  • Improved Circulation: Enhanced blood flow aids in overall health and well-being.

  • Customization: With varying levels of pressure adjustment, each individual’s needs can be precisely met.

Many of our alternating pressure mattresses offer additional functions such as low air loss and some even have lateral rotation patient positioning mattresses that tilt and reposition the patient side to side.  Explore our collection below.
