Moderate - Pressure Care Mattresses

pressure care mattress, also known as an anti-decubitus mattress, is a specialised mattress designed to prevent or treat pressure ulcers, commonly known as bedsores. Pressure ulcers are injuries to the skin and underlying tissues that can occur when prolonged pressure is applied to certain areas of the body, typically in individuals who are bedridden or have limited mobility.

Pressure care mattresses are specifically designed to redistribute pressure over a larger surface area, reducing the risk of pressure points and promoting better blood circulation. These mattresses often consist of a mix of specialised foams in specific arrangements or divided in compartments to provide continuous low-pressure support to different parts of the body.

Pressure care mattresses are commonly used in healthcare settings such as hospitals, nursing homes, and home care environments, where individuals at risk of developing pressure ulcers require long periods of bed rest. They are an important part of pressure ulcer prevention and management strategies and can contribute to the overall comfort and well-being of individuals with limited mobility.
