Air Mattress Options

Air mattresses for hospital beds provide patients with greater comfort and improved circulation. The continuous air pressure change in this hospital mattress allows the patients to feel rather fresh as it promotes fluid and blood flow. Thus, circulation is improved and waking and turning are eliminated.

A hospital bed air mattress is better than other beds for many reasons. These do not only provide comfort to the patient but also aid the nursing staff at the same time. Medical-use air mattresses can help nurses in identifying and gauge patients at risk, regardless of their experience in the field.

There is a huge variety of air mattress brands that you could choose from like SpanAmerica, Huntleigh, Invacare and Roho, etc. Following are a few air mattress options provided by these brands.
