The alternating pressure helps eliminate bed sores that still people get in bed. This works just like hospital equipment supplies of the same class do. This product accomplishes its purpose; it reduces the pressure on the patient's body due to the alternating pressure in the pad, which helps preventing pressure ulcers, as well as helps dealing with existing ones. Very easy to put together. It was inflated in about 15 mins.  It fits a hospital bed and alternates the pressure over several zones, it changes the pressure every five minutes. The pump can be put on the floor or hooked on the bed and runs fairly quietly. The price was unbelievable at Discount Medical Supplies.


Some users have the odd complain about this product, but even they admit that they probably got a “lemon,” given the overwhelming majority of positive reviews.
