What is the different between MED-AIRE Plus 8 Alternating Pressure Mattress Replacement with Low Air Loss and MED-AIRE 8 Alternating Pressure Mattress Overlay with Low Air Loss
The major difference between these two items are that one of them is a mattress replacement system that can be used alone on top of the bed frame without other mattress, and the overlay needs to be used on top of another mattress such as innerspring or foam mattress.
How to keep the PT from slipping slumping. What kind of pad / rubberized or sticky can be found.
You may need a set of bedside rails to prevent the patient from slipping out of the bed. We do not carry specific items for this purpose. You may want to use a cover or pillow to prevent slipping too.
would this mattress work better with a foam mattress under it? I am looking for comfort along with protection for my daughter that can not turn or roll by herself.
You can put a mattress under it if you want to make it more comfortable. But the mattress features cell in a cell design prevents the mattress from bottoming on the bed in the event of power failure. So you do not have to put a mattress under it. It will properly help relieve pressure under the body to prevent and heal bedsores.
I have used a low loss mattress in the hospital.I am unable to turn on my own and this mattress was very helpfull to me. How do I know which mattress is best for me to use at home.I am disabled and use a powre wheel chair.I do get pressure sores
Yes, you need an alternating pressure mattress with low air loss. If your pressure sores are at stages III or earlier, this Med-Aire Plus mattress will work well for you. But if the sores are very severe as stage IV, you may best consider the following models that are specifically for later stages:
How does the cell in a cell design prevent air loss if there is a power failure? Some of the other mattress units have a foam base to prevent bottoming out during power outages. Since the low air loss gradually emits air out of the mattress, how does the inner cell retain the air pressure?
The cell in a cell design allows the air cell stay thick like inflated during power failure since the internal cells stay inflated all the time. This design prevents the patient from bottoming out. The foam base is another way to prevent bottoming out during power outages. The different between the two is that the mattress with cell in a cell design can be thinner compared to the one with foam base if the thickness of the mattress air cells are the same. To some patients, the thinner mattress delivers better user experience. To others, the thicker one is more comfortable.
My son has a queen size bed. Would this particular item fit a queen size bed? At the present time the mattress is an Everair. The pump/computer ahs developed noises but we have been unable to find an address to return said equipment for maintenance. Thus in t, USAhe meantime no bariatric , much needed matteress. He is a fifteenth year TBI survivor, quad. Thank you for any advice you can give me. B Timberlake, Virginia
Actually, based on industrial standard, like all other medical mattresses and hospital beds, alternating pressure mattresses are not categorized as twin, full, queen or king. They are either standard (similar to twin) or bariatric (with different widths) with higher weight capacity.
If you need wider width, you have to get a bariatric model although you do not need higher weight capacity. The bariatric models include 39", 42", 48", 54" (similar to full size) and 60" (similar to queen size).
