The Drive Medical 54 in. Bariatric Heavy Duty Alternating Pressure Mattress is an ideal mattress for caregivers and medical practitioners looking for alternating pressure for Bariatric patients. The alternating pressure system of this mattress is optimized for pressure redistribution for individuals with up to stage IV pressure ulcers, and thus was designed to prevent, treat, and manage pressure ulcers in a home, long term care, or acute care setting. The cell-on-cell design of 10-inch deep air cells prevents bottoming out. It also provides an additional 24 hours of use in the event of a power outage. The advanced digital pump allows for a custom setting which allows the individual to set the unit to his comfort and safety needs and will even auto return to an alternating pressure mode if the system is left on static mode for more than 2 hours. The convenient cover stretches 4 ways, is low sheer, fluid resistant, vapor permeable, quilted, and zippered. Punctured air cells are easily removed and replaced. The unit also has a pillow function allowing 3 air cells at the head of the bed to stay in a static mode for better comfort and sleep. The system has 3 distinct diagnostic alarms which tell caregivers whether the problem is with the mattress or the pump. This allows for easy and effective troubleshooting.
