Specialty Medical Equipment specializes in offering pressure relief mattress systems that help prevent and treat pressure ulcers. By offering the power mattress systems such as alternating pressure bariatric models, lateral rotation models, pulsation and low air loss mattress systems, the patient’s ulcers are targeted by the mattresses’ alternating pressure to stimulate the movement of blood flow around and near the wound tissue to assist in prevention and healing. The low air loss feature is designed to add comfort, and ventilation, that a solid mattress cannot. Alternating pressure and low air loss technologies are known to be most effective in assisting the healing and prevention process, this makes care giving tasks significantly easier at a tremendous cost and time management savings to the care givers.
Specialty Medical Equipment, Inc. also offers foam mattresses, mobility wheel chair products, electrotherapy muscle stimulators, electrodes, bracing products, scooters, and therapy treatment tables.
