I am looking for a medical mattress for my brother who is currently in a assisted facility in Florida. He is experiencing bruising on his skin and is starting to develop small areas of redness. Can you recommend an air mattress that will prevent him from developing bedsores. I am looking for something affordable as we are paying for this out of pocket.
We spoke with Betty and asked a few general questions about her brother and his condition. Her brother currently needed an alternating pressure mattress for prevention and basic healing. He was 5’6″ and weighed 170 lbs. The family was paying for this out of pocket and they wanted something that was more long term care than a standard alternating pressure overlay.
We recommended the Pro 3000. This alternating pressure mattress was ideal for patients under 250 lbs and was great for healing and prevention. The patient would have the ability to adjust the firmness and softness of the mattress. The air mattress is 8″ thick and will offer pressure relief and low air loss therapy. Most importantly the mattress was on sale for $499.00 including free shipping. This long term care alternating pressure mattress was the ideal solution. It gave the family a quality product that worked to heal and prevent his bed sores and they save money in the long run by purchasing a much better alternating pressure mattress than the standard app bubble pad products.
