When trying to choose an air mattress for you loved one it is easy to get overwhelmed. There are 3 tips that are key in finding the right mattress for the right price.
- Determine if the person you are buying the hospital air mattress for has a bedsore/pressure ulcer and that stage the sore is. Why is this important? There are different mattresses for different stages. A stage 3-4 sore will require more healing and more advanced technology. Whereas if you are using a hospital air mattress for prevention you may go with a more basic mattress.
- Know the specifics of your patient. Is the patient over 250 lbs? If so they may require a Bariatric Hospital Air Mattress. These are mattresses designed to hold and prevent heavier patients from bottoming out.
- Know the environment for which the hospital air mattress will be used. Is this a nursing facility or rehab center? There are mattresses such as the Protect6000 Alternating Pressure Mattress that have a locking feature so settings can not be tampered with. This mattress is also more durable.
If you are looking for a great mattress at great price. My suggestion is the Protect4000 Alternating Pressure Mattress. This is a hospital air mattress that has a powerful pump, comfortable, and supreme in healing. It is a best seller and is very popular amongst caretakers and patients alike.
