Medical air mattress / Medical air mattress

Medical air mattress

The medical air mattress becomes soft and comfortable after being aerated. The surface of the mattress inflates or deflates because of difference in pressure. It has many merits such as good ventilation and shifting the pressure of the body as well as sterilization function if being used for a long term. By using a medical air mattress, body parts of a bed patient contacting the mattress would constantly be changed which serves as manual massage and to stimulate blood circulation and prevent muscular dystrophy. No manual interference is needed because the air mattress can work consistently on its own.
