Deciding to buy a pressure relief mattress, a memory foam mattress or latex mattress is not an easy task. They are the wrongly named mattresses for patients but at Accessible Madrid we prefer to refer to them as mattresses for people with some kind of physical need. Below, we offer you a careful selection of these special mattresses as well as more information about each of them.
Choosing the right mattress is critical, specially for people with specific physical needs who have to spend a lot of time in bed in the same position. The friction and pressure the body exerts on the materials it comes into contact with can cause pressure sores, ulcers or very uncomfortable sores.
In addition, the possible deformation of the mattress for prolonged stays, makes us choose specific mattresses. Pressure relief mattresses, memory foam mattresses or latex mattresses can help in a very useful way patients, old people, or ill people in hospitals, residences or homes.
Did you know that humans spend 1/3 of their life sleeping? If you think about it, it is not surprising that mattresses play an essential role in your health, mainly by providing support for your back and spine. Unfortunately, many people spend years sleeping in uncomfortable beds and eventually end up suffering pain during the night, and wake up tired in the morning. This condition can cause a lot of frustration and affect your daily life.
Bed sores, bedsores and ulcers
This is one of the main problems. Pressure sores and skin ulcers are two of the most frequent signs in people who have to spend a lot of time in bed, in the same position.
For someone who spends a lot of time in bed because of illness or disability, being comfortable is the most important thing. One must be very careful and prevent the appearance of pressure ulcers, those wounds on the skin that are caused by immobility. Pressure sore mattresses are the best way to prevent them. If the user already has bedsores, then air mattresses are the best option.
Mattresses for back, joint or muscle problems
Another problems faced by patients who spend a long time in bed are back, joint or musculoskeletal pain. In this case, an orthopedic mattress could offer the support they need before going to bed. Perhaps you are simply looking for the support of a firmer mattress, in which case these memory foam mattresses or latex mattresses would be the perfect solution.
Types of mattresses to buy in our store
Pressure relief mattresses
We have already explained what bedsores are and the effect they have on patients' lives. Although we will see the functionality of the pressure relief mattresses in the section reserved for this purpose, we can say that the most frequent ones are those that maintain air cells that can be inflated or deflated, although there are also pressure relief water or foam mattresses.
Memory foam mattresses
With the memory foam mattress, we intend to solve another problem suffered by people who have to spend long periods in bed with back or joint pains. The memory foam mattress has very convenient properties for this type of patients, such as their friendliness to the weight and shape of each body and their resilience or return to the initial state (thus allowing less deformation of the mattress).
Latex mattresses are another solution to to people suffering back, spine or joint problems while they are in bed. The main advantage of a latex mattress is the elasticity of this material as well as the cushioning, a very important property for the patient's mobility. In the section dedicated to latex mattresses you can choose which one best suits your needs.
