Alternating Pressure

Alternating Pressure Mattress Systems

These mattress systems have bladders positioned laterally or length-wise that slowly deflate and inflate, one at a time. This keeps the pressure points alternating throughout body.

Alternating pressure therapy uses pressure redistribution to stimulate blood flow, blood nourishes the skin. The air cells on the mattress slowly inflate and deflate under the patient at a predetermined or adjustable cycle time. This allows time for blood flow to reach the skin healing and skin breakdown or bedsores.

If you’ve heard of any air mattress, it’s probably Invacare. It isn’t the only good option, but it’s the leading name brand and an excellent choice.

Some models offer both Alternating Pressure and Low-Air-Loss modes available in one mattress system (hybrids).

Alternating Pressure Mattress Systems

Alternating Pressure Mattress with Pump:
Alternating Pressure therapy is ideal for prevention and in most cases the treatment of mild to moderate skin issues. But for non-mobile patients, those that do not move themselves while in bed, effective treatment usually means Low-Air-Loss Therapy. Especially in the case of existing skin breakdown, Low Air Loss will help keep wounds dry and on their way to healing.
