Alternating Pressure Mattress manufactured by Drive Medical, is specifically designed for patients who need to reduce or prevent decubitis ulcers. Through alternating pressure, the mattress can dynamically change patient pressure points and improve patient circulation. Other benefits of the system include microclimate control and friction reduction. The mattress is safe because it has air cells designed to minimize chance of mattress to bottom out. If there are any problems with the mattress, there are 3 audio and visual alarms that go off before it becomes a bigger issue.
The mattress is made up of twenty different air cells. Three of these cells stay filled and do not alternate, allowing them to keep patient comfort even with alternating cells. Nine of the twenty cells are also designed with laser hose in order to keep the patient cool and comfortable. They also decrease the needed recovery time. The pump included with the mattress gives eight liters per minute. When the air is pumped in, it goes through kink-proof spring lined tubing. In case of emergency, the mattress has CPR valves for incredibly quick deflation.
The Alternating Pressure Mattress is connected to a filter that has multiple indicators and buttons for a customized treatment. Even with its multiple options so you can find the perfect cycle and pressure, it is still incredibly simple. Around the mattress is a nylon cover. This ensures that the mattress will stay in great shape because it is water-resistant and durable. It will also stay clean because it is easily machine washable.
