We received a letter from a recent customer and wanted to share her story.
My mother recently was in the hospital for surgery and developed a bedsore. She needed pressure relief to heal the sore as well as relieve the pain that it was causing. We ordered your Pro6000 alternating pressure mattress for her bed while she was sleeping which helped her get a good night sleep, however, my mother likes to sit outside in the morning and drink her coffee and likes to sit in her recliner and watch her shows during the day. Your salesperson recommended the Alternating Pressure Cushion so that she can remain mobile and still benefit from healing through pressure relief. The combination of these two therapies has been extremely beneficial to her.
Thank you for the recommendation! It suited her needs perfectly and mom is on the mend!
My mother has the beginning stages of a bedsore and we need a mattress that we can adjust for comfort but that will also keep her dry while healing. Can you recommend a solution?
If a patient already has developed a bedsore and would like an adjustable mattress for comfort and pain relief I highly suggest the Pro 6000 Hospital air mattress. It features an adjustable setting and is supreme in keeping the patient cool and dry. This is mainly due to the added low air loss feature which provides circulation of air preventing heat and moisture build up that can advance skin breakdown. The Pro 6000 Hospital air mattress has sensors that react to the clients movement so that pressure relief is constant and healing can begin. Your mother would benefit greatly being on this alternating pressure mattress.
I wanted to share this story about a customer from Texas who tried many alternating pressure mattress systems and was frustrated because he could not get comfortable at night. This customer had problems with excessive perspiration and heat and was constantly sweating and uncomfortable. He recently lost movement in his legs due to the “MS” and was experiencing skin break down on his calf and ankles. He asked for a recommendation for a low air mattress that would be comfortable and would prevent and control the excessive perspiration he was experiencing every night.
We explained this is definitely a difference between an alternating pressure mattress with a low air loss feature and a “True Low Air Loss mattress” This customer needed a true low air loss mattress system. These hospital grade low air mattresses work using a blower based pump. This means it is constantly pumping air into the mattress using 1200 liters of air per minute. This powerful pump is constantly circulating air through the mattress allowing the air to flow through laser holes in the mattress to keep the patient c
The alternating pressure with “low air loss” is good for normal pressure relief but was not enough to control the excessive sweating this particular patient was experiencing. Low output alternating pressure therapy will only circulate air while the mattress is in between cycles not continuously like this patient needed.
If you are a patient that is experiencing excessive sweating please feel free to call us so we can help you find the mattress that would be best to suit your needs. Our 24 hour on staff customer care would be happy to listen and explain the differences to help you select the best hospital air mattress for you or your family member
