From their initial days as a stow-away bed or mattress and a floating mat, air mattresses have evolved into a product with manifold uses and benefits. These include medical and healthcare applications. In India, PharmEasy offers you the opportunity to buy different varieties of air mattresses online at attractive discounts with doorstep delivery.

What is an air mattress used for?

Air mattresses have great use for people with certain orthopaedic problems. Lying down for long hours on a hard mattress may lead to injuries to the skin and underlying tissue from prolonged pressure on the soft tissues. These are known as bedsores. Air mattresses provide relief through air motions and patterns that stop pressure build-ups, adjusting to specific parts of the individual body prone to pressure build-up. Air pressure gets redistributed over larger areas and prevents bedsores. In extremely cold conditions, air mattresses are enabled with electric heating for comfort.

Why are air mattresses important?

People who are bedbound and are unable to adjust their positioning or are required to spend a lot of time sitting in a single position without mobility are at risk of pressure injuries. The risk is more for the elderly due to their fragile skin. The use of air mattresses benefits by relieving and redistributing the pressure on the body. The air-filled sacs within the mattress enable you to move your body comfortably as if floating on air. You get a good night’s sleep, a very important factor for your health.
