Is This Mattress Suitable for Use with Profiling Beds?
Yes, this mattress is designed with castellated memory foam to ensure friction is reduced and pressure care is provided during the profiling process. It is suitable for use with all single-width profiling beds, and is particularly suited to use with the Alerta Encore Profiling Bed.
How Does Memory Foam Assist with Pressure Relief?
Memory foam is one of the best materials possible for pressure relief, making it a perfect material for patients at significant risk of pressure sores. The unique benefit comes from the way that memory foam moulds to your body, ensuring that all areas of the skin are supported and in contact with the foam.
This means that ‘hot spots’ are reduced – meaning there are fewer areas of the body experiencing a higher amount of pressure than others, and thus fewer areas that are at a high risk of pressure sores.
Also available in a 4ft wide bariatric size.
