A friend of mine went to the hospital a couple of months ago and it was truly amazing what she found out. She is a bit heavy and the regular hospital beds were never comfortable for her so she dreaded having to be there. However, she was happy because they actually put her in a room with a hospital air mattress.
This is a very new innovation for hospitals and so much so that staff is still trying to figure out how to use it. Generally speaking, the hospital air mattress is a great idea for people who are in rehab or who need to relax when they are in the hospital.
Also, this hospital queen air mattress surpasses the traditional hospital bed in terms of cleaning. The traditional hospital mattress can trap microbes and other germs which can be difficult to clean. The hospital air mattress can just be washed and disinfected quickly on the spot.
Another reason hospitals are starting to use air beds is because patients that are sick are able to lay in them longer and comfortable. When there is overcrowding it is easier to add a hospital air bed than a traditional bed because all you have to do is inflate it.
These air mattresses are also light to carry which makes them portable and usually, anyone can take them from one room to another. Studies have shown that a hospital air mattress is much better for patients because they get a deeper sleep and their back, spine, and neck are supported; they found that for some it also helps to increase circulation.
The hospital air mattress can also be bought for home and it is more convenient for those family members who may be bedridden. The air mattress can be set up anywhere and it may be a way for these family members to still be a part of family activities.
