This seems to help her, as she has not complained much about her bum’s protruding tailbone, since she started using it. I had to order this second set as the first set I ordered from Amazon only came with a foot pump!!! Unfortunately your company does not sell just the electric pump.
Thank you so much for your feedback. We love to know that the pad has helped your mom so far. If you ever need just the pump you can call us so we can check if we have it available, nevertheless, usually we only sell the whole item. Thanks for choosing us! -Angie- Vive Health.
My daughter who has Spina Bifida has had problems with pressure ulcers for much of her life,has used Rohoe,,a KCI mattress,and last a Vicair.....then she started having problems with skin breakdown on her Coccyx area AGAIN..:(....I found your mattress on Amazon,,,and just after using it for one night,it started the healing process...I was amazed!.....It has been a few weeks now ,and she is totally healed..I do believe in some cases,people like my daughter need a mattress that indeed alternates air flow...Even tho they are often on a "pressure relief " mattress,,,you are still susceptible to pressure!....The change in the air flow every 6 mins,,is pure genius!....and I cannot thank-you enough!....I will be a forever customer!...

I bought this mattress pad for my bed ridden 88 year old mom a few weeks ago and I am thrilled with the results . My mom started to develop bed sores in the buttocks area but they quickly healed after using the pad . In addition she is not complaining like she did with her previous air mattress . She is happy and I am happy .

Providing relief from bed sores and other skin problems caused by extended bedrest, the alternating pressure mattress pad sits on top of your existing mattress and promotes increased circulation while reducing skin breakage. The variable pressure mattress pad evenly distributes body weight to relieve pressure spots for exceptional support and comfort. Perfect for immobilized or weak patients who cannot shift their weight frequently.
Everything you need to get up and running is included with your purchase. Nothing additional is required.
Each unit includes
An alternating pressure mattress pad should be used for patients who are likely to spend more than 15 hours per day in bed or who are classified as medium to high risk of developing pressure ulcers, or bedsores. People at higher risk are typically: seriously ill; not mobile; have spinal cord injury; do not eat a proper diet; wear prosthesis; smoke; are incontinent of stool or urine; have diabetes; have COPD or heart failure; have Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, or heart failure; or have a broken hip or have had a recent hip surgery.
The alternating pressure pad uses the distribution of air that cycles between cells to stimulate blood flow and distribute weight off pressure points.
The dial knob on the pressure pump can be easily adjusted to meet your pressure preference. Just turn towards the “+” sign for higher pressure and turn towards the “-” for lower pressure.
The air pressure is rotated throughout the mattress pad about every 6 minutes. There are two main air chambers in the pad that alternate, causing the patient’s weight to shift.
The entire shipped box weighs just under 9 pounds.
The mattress pad itself, before it is inflated, weighs 2 pounds.
Yes, the mattress pad is completely waterproof.
It will work great for individuals with incontinence, however you can also consider combining the mattress pad with an incontinence bed pad to make cleanup easier.
The power source is compatible with standard USA 110V outlets.
Yes, what is great about having the alternating pressure pad overlay is that it very flexible and will work over a standard mattress or hospital bed of any size.

The mattress pad is made of a durable plastic vinyl material.
It can be punctured, but not very easily. If you have a cat it is best to put a durable sheet over the pad and you will be fine. If it does get punctured a repair kit is included.
The mattress pad is 2.5 inches when fully inflated.
The mattress pad is not built for a recliner, but it can work. If the chair is in a reclined position it can go vertically aligned with your body. In a seated position it can go horizontally and run over the edges of the chair.
Yes, a fitted sheet can be placed over the pressure mattress pad.
Yes, the alternating pressure mattress pad is used in prevention of bedsores. The mattress will relieve pressure from vulnerable areas so that sores do not develop.
