Fall pads also know as floor pads attach at the base of the bed near the floor, they can feature low slip bottoms and be made in variety of sizes. According to the CDC about 1800 people living in nursing homes die from falls each year. Each year, a typical nursing home with 100 beds reports 100 to 200 falls, yet many falls go unreported. The average falls is 2.6 falls per person per year. About 35% of the fall injuries occur amount residents who cannot walk.

Our Defined Perimeter Pressure Relief Mattress has raised bolsters to help keep nursing home patients from rolling out of bed in combination with the fall pads would reduce the chance of a fall and make a fall less tramatic should someone fall.

Test results prove our pressure relief mattresses will prevent up to stage 2 pressure ulcers. Pressure ulcers can also cost facilities tens of thousands of dollars annually.

 

Our pressure relief mattresses have been on the market for over 20 years. We make each of the pressure relief mattresses to order, so we can make custom sizes as needed. Our pressure relief mattresses feature a firm side rail that is flush with the side of the mattresses, this firm side rail allows the patient to enter and exit the bed without sinking in on the side.
