Low Air Loss Mattresses

A specialised true low air loss mattress for unrivalled comfort and efficient pressure ulcer management from Select Medical.

Low air loss (LAL) mattresses are active support surfaces. Their use in pressure ulcer prevention and management has been recognised for many years. The low air loss mattress comfortably immerses the cared for deep into the support surface to carefully reduce interface pressures.

Through a combination of strategically located perforations in each individual air cell and a superior vapour permeable mattress top cover, low air loss mattresses are far more efficient at reducing heat and perspiration on the skin than your standard CMHR foam hospital mattress.

Continuous pressure forces on skin tissue is known to restrict blood supply to underlying tissues and damage the skin leading to potential pressure ulcer development.  To help prevent pressure ulcers (bed sores), the best low air loss mattress systems combine low support pressures and control microclimate to deliver superior pressure relief and comfort for the cared for.
