Innerspring & Foam Mattresses
Innerspring, foam & pressure redistribution foam mattresses made to prevent bed sores
A good hospital bed mattress will redistribute body pressure points to prevent bed sores
Foam hospital bed mattresses will vary greatly based on their effectiveness at preventing pressure ulcers (bed sores) by redistributing the body's pressure points and allowing air flow to the body. The Proactive Protekt mattresses, Invacare Softform Excel and Premier mattress and Mason ShearCare mattresses are some examples of a high quality, foam mattress made to help prevent bed sores based on its construction. The exact mattress to choose from can be confusing, but it is primarily based on how susceptible the user is to getting pressure ulcers, which is usually based on how much of the time the user is laying in the bed.
