Here we will talk about all the available models in Anti-decubitus, specifying the characteristics of each one. For example, foam models are the most suitable for minor injuries. The various types of anti-decubitus mattress change according to their operation. The anti-decubitus mattress should be chosen based on the type of problem, the build and the weight of the patient, improve circulation, reduce pain and promote the quality of the dream.
Here are the various models:
Continuous low-pressure anti-bedsore mattress: they are suitable for those who have suffered injuries up to the 3rd degree. The bulbous cell system allows regulating the pressure of the mattress, adapting to the weight and posture of the patient.
Anti-decubitus mattress with low alternating pressure: it is rather similar to the previous model, however, this offers the opportunity to alternate different pressure cycles, and is perfect for rehabilitation therapies, in addition to those for muscle maintenance.
Anti-decubitus slow-release air mattress: this model ensures greater comfort, and is the most recommended for patients who risk pressure sores, because it prevents them, even before treating them. They are suitable for patients who have suffered 4th-degree injuries. The contact pressure is regulated by the sensors placed on the whole surface and supports the body in an autonomous and constant way.
Anti-decubitus mattress with fluidized air: This model is particularly suitable for sores or for incontinence cases. Its system pushes through the silicone-coated microspheres, the air in direct contact with the user.
The anti-decubitus mattress in hollow siliconized fiber: This mattress is hollow inside, is made of polyester, and is slippery, waterproof, crushproof and very elastic. It is suitable for light and long-limbed patients.
The anti-decubitus mattress in gel or water: Heavier and more expensive than all, this mattress has a fluctuating action, which reduces the force of pressure, controlling movements using a mechanical system. It can cause headaches and nausea, effects that are found in those who suffer from seasickness.
Anti-decubitus floating mattress: It is the best for patients who are at risk of suffering pressure sores. It is the latest generation mattress, which is traversed by sensors over the entire surface, for the evaluation of the user’s weight, adapting the amount of air introduced into the PVC of which it is made.
