What is an Alternating Pressure Mattress?
An alternating pressure mattress is a medical air hospital mattress that is designed for the treatment and prevention of bedsores and decubitus ulcers. Alternating pressure therapy uses pressure redistribution that stimulates blood flow to nourish the skin. The alternating pressure mattress system uses cells or air bladders to inflate and deflate under the patient. When the cell deflates it changes and reduces pressure allowing increased blood flow and circulation to the skin and tissue.
