Air, Gel & Foam Mattress Pads and Toppers

When a condition forces a patient to spend most of their time in bed, the constant strain on their skin and tissue makes them more prone to developing painful pressure ulcers. Group I support surfaces are the most economical form of preventing skin issues in patients who are bedridden. While these therapeutic mattress pads and overlays don’t offer a lot of pressure management, they are great for use as a preventative measure against pressure ulcers for most patients.

PHC is proud to carry a wide range of support surfaces that will fit perfectly atop an existing mattress or bed frame and entirely match the needs of the patient. To uniformly distribute pressure and reduce friction and shear, we recommend gel overlays, which feature gel bladders tucked away inside a foam core for layers of relief. If a patient is highly susceptible to developing pressure ulcers, all of our alternating pressure pads allow for you to change pressure points by inflating and deflating cells based on the needs of the patient. We also carry some of the best memory foam mattresses that are designed to maximize pressure reduction with multiple layers of comfortable foam.

For patients that are facing a long stay in bed, PHC is proud to carry a wide range of comfortable foam mattresses and other Group I support surfaces that work to prevent skin issues before they happen.
