"Why did you choose this product?"
Bought this for my disabled husband who is bed-bound 95% of the time. He was developing pressure areas. Visiting nurses suggested we try a this. Originally the wrong item was shipped (the fixed pressure pump rather than variable pressure pump) but a call to customer service resulted in the correct item being shipped out immediately! Received it within 2 days, even before a returned the incorrect one. Customer service was awesome!! Anyway, after using this for the last couple months my husband has not developed ANY pressure areas. So pleased I found this and would recommend to anyone whose may be having issues with pressure areas....

I purchased this pressure pump and pad system for my father's hospital bed at home. Since he has mobility issues, I was looking for something to help treat and prevent bed sores. In just the couple days he's used it so far, I'm already seeing some positive results (including him sleeping a little better). The system is super easy to assemble, just a matter of connecting the air tubes to the pump and the mattress. The pump is very quiet and barely makes any noise at all. I have the pump hanging on the side of the foot of the bed (as opposed to on the footboard), and the power cord is long enough to run beneath the bed to the wall outlet behind the head of the bed. This pad does not have the tucking flaps as the picture would indicate, so it just covers the top surface of the mattress and doesn't fold under the head and foot of the mattress. I put both a mattress pad and fitted sheet on top of it, and then adjusted the comfort setting until I reached a firmness my father liked. All in all, I'd say this is a good value and seems to be serving its purpose. For a person who has difficulty moving, these 130 alternating air cells are better than just the plain hospital bed mattress. So far, so good!Read More

If you want a pain in the neck by all means purchase this mattress or if you want to take a sick day from work be my guest and purchase this wonderful air mattress. That way you will not have to lie to your boss. This air mattress is supposed to be made for the disabled but it is very dangerous because the pump puts out more air during the night and therefore by the next morning all the air is on the left side tweaking your neck. If you are disabled obviously you are not able to change the setting. You have to wait for your assistant. In my opinion it is very dangerous. Save your money because if you do buy it you will need every penny to buy Ben-gay.Read More
