Description
Mattress for pressure ulcer prevention that automatically sets different zones based on the user’s individual needs and position in bed.
Options include either alternating low pressure or constant low pressure. The mattress can also be set to “hard” in order to facilitate dressing. A warning signal serves as a reminder to return the mattress to the alternate pressure setting.

The mattress has a small compact control unit, which is available with a long tube. The easy-to-clean mattress cover is made of breathable fabric. The mattress operates quietly.
