LVA1004 Alternating Pressure Pad Beige


The Vive alternating pressure mattress pad was designed to provide you relief from bed sores and ulcers caused by prolonged bed rest. Equipped with 130 individually heat-sealed air bubbles, the alternating pressure pad evenly distributes the body weight to provide superior support and comfort. Designed to be placed on top of a regular bed mattress, including hospital bed mattresses, the pressure pad has air-filled channels that alternately fill up and decompress to promote blood flow to every area of the body, minimizing the formation of pressure points for immobilized or weak patients who cannot shift their weight frequently.


  • Alleviates Bed Sores And Ulcers

Providing relief from bed sores and ulcers caused by extended bed rest, the alternating pressure mattress promotes increased circulation and helps manage skin maceration. The variable pressure mattress evenly distributes weight to relieve pressure spots for exceptional support and comfort.

  • Designed With 130 Air Cells

Each of the 130 air cells alternately inflates and deflates to create a mattress surface that evenly distributes a patient or loved one’s weight and eliminates pressure spots.  Each air cell is heat-sealed to ensure it will not leak for exceptional durability.
