IT IS NOT SO MUCH THE MATTRESS THAT HELPS HEAL A PRESSURE SORE, BUT OTHER INTERVENTIONS SUCH AS A TURNING AND REPOSITIONING SCHEDULE, PROPER NUTRITION, GOOD SKIN CARE AND HAVING THE APPROPRIATE TREATMENT IN PLACE FOR THE CHARACTERISTICS OF THE WOUND. IN ADDITION TO THE ABOVE, A MATTRESS THAT HAS AN ALTERNATING PRESSURE SYSTEM IS A GOOD CHOICE. THIS TYPE OF MATTRESS COMES WTIH A PUMP AND CYCLES AIR THOUGH COMPARTMENTS INSIDE THE MATTRESS, HELPING TO DECREASE PRESSURE TO THE SKIN. CONSULTING A WOUND CARE CENTER OR SPECIALIST CAN BE A WONDERFUL RESOURCE.

hi, I just wanted to let you know that its not so much the bed frame its the bed mattress that is important to relieving pressure sores I have a quadriplegic brother and we have had to find new matresses and the best ones for pressure sores are air flow mattresses and you would have to check with a medical supply company to get what would be best for the patient so I hope this helped.
