Undecided as to whether or not a pressure relieving mattress is right for you? Read on as we explore the benefits to owning one.
Who Would Need Pressure Relieving Mattresses?
Generally speaking, our pressure relieving mattresses are used by those who are bed bound due to medical reasons. This may be a temporary situation or a permeant one. Either way, laying down in the same position for an extended period of time, can cause complications. This generally comes in the form of pressure ulcers (bedsores).
Pressure ulcers can arise at any time. Due to the amount of pressure applied to certain areas of the body, blood flow becomes restricted. This, coupled with high levels of friction, is what causes pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers occur most frequently on prominent areas such as the back of the head, shoulders, elbows, the lower back, buttocks, hips, inner knees, and heels.
Aside from being extremely uncomfortable and painful, pressure ulcers can lead to further more dangerous complications. These complications can range from moderate to life threatening and include bone and joint infections, cellulitis, sepsis and even cancer.
How Can Pressure Relieving Mattresses Benefit Me?
If yourself or somebody in your care is bed bound due to a medical condition, a pressure relieving mattress can benefit them greatly. Traditionally, we treat pressure ulcers by regularly turning a bed bound individual. This is not only uncomfortable and tiring for both those involved, but can also be stress inducing for the afflicted.
We designed our pressure relieving mattresses to distribute applied pressure evenly across the body. As such, there is no need for turning. They provide the high levels of support and comfort that those in need desperately require. We craft them from the finest, most high-quality materials and utilise advanced medical mattress techniques in order to provide exceptional results.
Are Pressure Relieving Mattresses Purely For Medical Purposes?
Traditionally speaking yes, however, we have tested our pressure relieving mattresses on those without medical conditions. Our tests showed great results on the quality of sleep that they received whilst sleeping on our pressure relieving mattresses. As such, we made the decision to offer our pressure relieving mattresses to everybody.

Our Best Mattress offers the same great pressure relieving benefits that our healthcare mattresses do.
