The Invacare microAIR Alternating Pressure True Low Air Loss Mattress fits onto a hospital bed for high risk ulcer prevention for patients who are bedridden. When a patient lies down for long periods of time boney prominences are susceptible to pressure ulcers. The constant pressure with alternating air cycles adds relief and improves blood circulation. In addition, the True Low Air Loss Mattress circulates air through bladders to have a cooling affect so skin doesn't break down from moisture.
The pressure can be customized to the patient as well as cycle time of 5 10, 15 or 20 minute cycles. The system always monitors the pressure. An audible alarm will sound if the air pressure dips to prevent the patient from ever bottoming out. The lock out button prevents accidental adjustments.
The microAIR is available in 36, 42 and 48 inch mattress size to support different weight capacities. The mattress is covered in a anti-microbial cover that is fluid-proof and prevents shear. Choose the microAir with raised sides when patient requires additional security. The raised edge is a 36-inch model to support a 350 pound weight capacity. Invacare also has replacement parts when needing to replace the mattress or the power unit.

It does the job in the right way. would give it 10 out of
10 on the alternating matter.
True Low Air Loss:
True Low arir loss is a micro laser holes on bladders that help removing moisture and heat. This is a really important way for treating alcers.
However, that isn't the case here. This is not a true low air loss mattress at all. The bladders are not vented as laser holes at all. Instead, each bladder has 2 small holes. One in the far edge of each side, right and left. Please notice that the middle area has no vented holes at all.
.this is not helping me at all. It's too hot and my skin keeps sweating all the time. Plz not that im not using any sheet or blankent on the mattress.
Plz help me take my money back since the mattress doesn't do its job at all.
