Mattresses have become an integral part of our life. And with the new technological revolution in the mattress industry, the quality and usefulness of mattresses is increasing day by day.
Many times patients in the hospital complain of getting pressure ulcers or bed sores, as they are generally called. This happens because of lying in place for a long time. People who are bedridden experience this a lot. Due to longer than usual spending of time in one place, pressure starts building on a particular point on our body. This pressure along with the friction that is caused due to our occasional movements, give rise to reddishness on our skin. This further develops into spores on our skin. They keep growing and the infection spreads. The treatment for this problem is very painful. It’s better to prevent this problem rather than treating it. And that can be done by pressure relief mattresses. These mattresses are different from our regular ones. They focus on alleviating the pressure on high-risk areas of the body. Let’s check them out.
