The Ripple mattress helps to
prevent pressure sores from developing.
Inflatable mattresses are designed to prevent
pressure wounds. The mattresses are composed of multiple inflatable air tubes
or cells which alternately inflate and deflate, mimicking the
movement of a patient shifting in bed or being rotated by a caregiver, never
leaving the patient in one position for any extended length of time. This
action relieves pressure under the body - particularly in parts with less
padding, like hips, shoulders, elbows, and heels - and helps ensure proper air
circulation, helping to prevent and manage the occurrence of pressure wounds
Mattress is sold with a pump that alternates the pressure in the rippled
compartments” so that each section has a different pressure to the one next to it
constantly changing the weight bearing area of the body.
