MATTRESS TO HEAL STAGE 1 BEDSORES

Included in this section are products to prevent and treat stage one bedsores. Stage one bedsores are not open wounds. They are usually reddened or appear as a different color to the area of the skin. The skin may feel painful even though there are not open wounds or tears. The skin temperature is often warmer and the stage 1 sore can feel either firmer or softer than the area around it. Alternating pressure overlays or gel mattresses often categorized as group 1 products are commonly used as the first line of defense when treating a stage one bedsore. Alternating pressure mattress systems can also be used for prevention and healing (see stages 2-4)
