What a Medical Air Mattress can do for you

Most hospital bed users will find comfort and healing in the use of a therapeutic, pressure prevention mattress. But individuals whose mobility is severely restricted, are especially at risk of developing bedsores and pressure wounds– resulting from the lack of ventilation and rubbing of skin that cannot move on the surface of a standard mattress. If you or a loved one are in the process of or have developed pressure soars, it might be the right time to consider the purchase or rent of an air mattress.

Medical Air Mattress by Drive MedicalBedsores can be extremely painful and severely damage the patient’s skin. The main advantage of the medical air mattress is that it is able to shift or alternate pressure points, keeping the individual’s body in movement while they rest. The alternating pressure is achieved via a programmable air pump which inflates and deflates certain sections of the mattress to ensure that the patient never experiences excessive pressure on any points of their body.

A great option that is now available with many medical air mattresses is low-airloss technology. Mattress manufacturers puncture hundreds of laser holes throughout the mattress that allow tiny amounts of air to slowly escape. This feature gives patients the feeling that they’re “floating on air” and helps to keep them cool (moisture management) and dry all the time.

It is important to consider that even though air mattresses have alternating pressure technology, this doesn’t meant that the device itself loses firmness. Mediplus Mobility’s sturdy medical air mattresses are built with durable materials that will ensure the use of your new mattress for years to come. They are perfect for use with any of our home hospital beds.

Freedom on wheels: The Rollator Walker

In decades past, individuals who would get tired or lose balance while taking a stroll around the neighborhood, visiting a mall with friends or exploring the outdoors, would be relegated to staying at home for their own safety. Luckily, in the last few years, various mobility devices have come into the market with a sole purpose: that of restoring freedom and confidence to those exact same individuals. Among those devices is the ever evolving Rollator walker.

You might be wondering what the difference between a conventional walker and a rollator is. Whereas a walker is a simple foldable aluminum frame (with or without wheels), the rollator takes the walker experience to the next level. Mediplus Mobility’s rollators feature the latest innovations to ensure a smooth user experience both indoors and outdoors. For example, unlike regular walkers– rollators always come equipped with four wheels. Unlike the small wheels on walkers, rollator wheels are larger and many of them have tread that assists people in navigating more rugged terrains. Also, most rollators come equipped with a cushioned seat and backrest. These features are crucial for individuals who tire out after walking for a while. By having a seat surface handy, you can take a breather at your convenience.

Of course, in order to guarantee the safety of the person who’s using the rollator walker, the devices are also equipped with ergonomic brakes. Not only are the brakes important in helping individuals achieve more stability while using their rollator, but they must also be activated when using the rollator as a seat in order to prevent possible slips.

Not only do rollators come packed with features like handy shopping baskets and comfortable foam grips, but later-generation rollator walkers are styled to complement one’s personal style. Whether you’re looking for a rollator for sale or a rollator for rent, you will find that they are often painted in attractive colors like white, red, blue or black and possess modern, almost aerodynamic lines.

Mediplus Mobility has a large selection of rollator walkers available for rent and for sale. Not only does our team guarantee excellent pricing and quick availability, but we also have the knowledge necessary to answer any questions you may have when picking a great device for your needs.
