For more than half a year, our most advanced dynamic mattress TubusAir 18/4 side has been used by a patient suffering from severe muscular dystrophy who has been immobile for several years and weighs only 48 kilos. Before then he used a high-quality anti-decubitus foam mattress. Since he uses the dynamic GetComfort Tubus Air mattress he doesn’t need to be turned at night or supported with various pillows in order to prevent pressure ulcers. Given the patient?s low body weight, a SOFT version with a 24/7 therapy cycle (alternating pressure) was chosen. The static mode is used only when the patient is being changed, washed or during his physiotherapy. “His skin looks completely healthy with no redness. The mattress is easy to use and the control unit operates quietly. He feels good lying on this mattress. When using the “turning the patient” function, he can clear his throat more easily and his spasm is relieved. We are very pleased with the mattress,” said members of his family. The GetComfort TubusAir mattress has greatly alleviated the patient and his family’s life while saving precious time.
