Lateral Rotation Mattress


Lateral Rotation Mattresses are bed mattresses which utilize independent air cells in the mattress to constantly rotate the patient from side to side to provide proper pressure redistribution. Lateral Rotation Therapy reduces the risk of pulmonary complications, stimulates gastrointestinal tract, improves circulation and provides pressure relief without disturbing the patient. Lateral Rotation Mattresses are generally designed to fit all standard hospital beds and include a high density foam base, head bolster and abduction wedge for additional patient safety. Many Lateral Rotation Mattress systems combine two therapies: Lateral Rotation and Low Air Loss in a portable system.

Why are Lateral Rotation Mattresses used?

Lateral Rotation Mattresses are designed for patients who are at risk of circulation problems and bed sores. Pressure ulcers lead to pain, a longer stay in the hospital and slower recovery from health problems. They are a significant and growing problem for patients in confinement to bed or a chair, being unable to move, losing of bowel or bladder control, having poor nutrition, or with lowered mental awareness. When an immobile patient is left in one position, infection to vital organs and pulmonary and respiratory systems can develop in a short period of time. Turning and shifting patient body weight greatly reduces the risk of developing these problems.
