Hospital Mattress

Most basic Hospital Bed Mattresses are approx. 6" thick and either an innerspring system, foam, or a hybrid combination of both. All are constructed to work with hospital beds since they flex with head/foot up/down adjustment. Hospital Bed Mattress systems are designed to bend with the positioning of the bed and patient.

Inner-Spring versus Foam Mattress

Inner-spring mattresses are the most common type of mattress supplied with Medicare Beds. Mainly because of economics. The innerspring mattress is least expensive and is designed to be supplied with Medicare Beds packaged with a minimalistic regard to patient comfort. Foam Mattress systems are not that much more expensive and provide far superior comfort. A Foam Mattress may appear to be softer on the surface, but actually provide a firmer foundation and do not breakdown like the innerspring. Bariatric Mattress systems designed for obese patients are made of foam, not innerspring. Foam mattress systems are available with an assortment of top layer designs for comfort and combating delicate skin issues.

Pressure relieving mattress systems

Therapeutic foam mattresses can consist of different layers, zones, features and densities. These products are designed to redistribute pressure and are used in the prevention and early stages of pressure ulcers. A softer foam is used to cradle the head, while a foam which becomes softer as more heat or body temperature is applied is used to cradle the heels. Multiple layers of foam offer pressure redistribution for the torso while higher density and IFD foam are placed on the side of the mattress for side support.

An entire category exists for wound care and pressure ulcer prevention and treatment. See Low-Air-Loss, Alternating Pressure, Lateral Rotation, Static-Air and GEL Overlay in the Support Surface Therapy section of our website.
