View Full Version : Air Mattress

I have been given a hospital bed with an air mattress. The control for the air mattress is quite noisy, anyone else having a similar problem?

Yes, I had the same problem. I got them to change it for a gel mattress. Pressure sores are the worry but in MND we usually know if we are getting one as it hurts. In MS and the like they can't feel them so the air mattress is more important, apparently.

Hi Michael,
Just wondering if it is an old mattress? Can you adjust the air circulation frequency?
I have one, which isn’t noisy, more of a gentle background noise.
I guess they are different, depending on the brand.
