High level of pressure redistribution includes alternating pressure, low air loss, lateral turning & pulsation
Low Air Loss • Alternating Pressure Air Mattresses • Lateral Rotate • Turning • Eliminate Bed Sores
These therapeutic, pressure relief air mattresses are a complete mattress system that replace the existing mattress on the bed.
The Proactive, Invacare, Probasics, Lumex and Drive Medical air mattress replacement systems are all designed to aid in the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers (also called bed sores) by means of:
- Alternating Pressure - Air cells alternately inflate and deflate allowing redistribution of weight and pressure points
- Low Air Loss - Helps maintain dry, aerated sleeping surface preventing body heat build up
- True Low Air Loss - Increased air flow through air cells & cover onto body
- Lateral Rotation - Turns patient side to side to set angle during set time cycle
All methods offer pressure relief and improved air circulation by either weight redistribution and/or allowing air to reach the body, preventing heat build up.
