Hospital Bed Mattress / Low Air Loss Mattress

If you need a hospital bed mattress or low air loss mattress for yourself, your patient or your loved one, you’ve come to the right place. For bedridden or immobile patients, the risk of bed sores can be lessened with an air loss mattress, while patients who already have pressure sores can benefit from using an alternating pressure mattress.

When selecting a mattress for your needs, you’ll need to consider your health needs, your budget and the size you want.

Type

Protect delicate skin with a medical air mattress, or care for immobile patients with a rotating mattress. When considering a bedsore mattress, both low air loss mattresses and alternating pressure mattresses will help prevent and treat pressure ulcers, although their technologies differ greatly. The following is a brief explanation of the main types of medical mattresses available.

  • Low Air Loss Mattress: A low air loss mattress (LAL mattress), also referred to as an airflow mattress, is designed with tiny pores that blow air into the space between the air cylinders and the cover, creating an airflow that keeps the skin dry and relieves pressure.
  • Alternating Pressure Mattress: Alternating pressure mattresses (APP mattresses) are equipped with two sets of air cells that alternately inflate and deflate to constantly shift pressure points and promote circulation.
  • Lateral Rotation Mattress: Also known as a turning mattress, these medical mattresses are designed to gently rotate bedridden users onto their sides, providing increased patient comfort as well as pressure sore prevention and treatment.

Cost

Basic hospital bed mattresses may be ideal for healthcare facilities, while high-quality, fully adjustable mattresses may be a better choice for the home and long-term care facilities. Prices for hospital mattresses range from $100 for a basic innerspring hospital mattress, to $6,000 for a deluxe LAL mattress for bariatric users with skin breakdown.
