Alternating Pressure Mattress.
What is an Alternating Pressure Mattress and how does it work?
Alternating pressure therapy uses pressure redistribution that stimulates blood flow to nourish the skin. The cells on the mattress will inflate and deflate under the patient. This allows time for blood flow to reach the skin healing and preventing bedsores. Some of the best alternating pressure mattress systems offer adjustable cycle times. Adjustable cycles allow the mattress to operate at different intervals and can be helpful with healing and pain management. Models such as the PM8080 contain this feature and are most often used in hospitals or home health.
Low air loss adds an additional therapy designed to prevent the patient from sweating and getting hot. The Low air loss circulates air through laser holes in the mattress. This is designed to wick away moisture from the skin reducing heat and moisture build up.
