The Drive Med-Aire Essential 8 Inch Alternating Pressure and Low Air Loss Mattress System offers deeper air cells to the traditional 6-inch air cells. The system is designed for alternating pressure therapy in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers. The 20 air cells alternate air pressure to redistribute weight and pressure to encourage circulation where pressure ulcers are common. The control unit regulates the cycles every 10 minutes and also offers a static mode after therapy. The settings also allow caregiver to adjust patient's weight to ensure proper immersion and compliance. Audible and visual alarms will alert caregiver if the air pressure dips.

The Med-Aire Essential 8-Inch Alternating Pressure Mattress comes with a removable quilted nylon cover. It's designed to be easily cleaned and maintained while being low shear to be gentle to vulnerable skin. When not in use, the tubing features the EZ Lock/Quick Release with CPR valve for easy deflation. Each air cell bladder (14508-CELL1) is independent and can be changed out as needed without replacing the entire mattress system.

Drive Medical also manufacturers a similar low air loss mattress with an additional 3-Inch foam base called the Assure since it gives assurance of comfort and protection in case of a power outage.
