The American Medical Equipment AME3500 and AME3584 system provides alternating pressure and is designed to be used in the prevention, treatment and management of Pressure Ulcers. Pump produces consistent air flow. Special vibration isolating features insure that the patient rests easily, without feeling the pumps vibrating action. LED and audible alarm provide critical performance data and alert caregiver when pressure falls below 10mmHg (inner mattress pressure). Easy to replace individual bladders. Mattress has 20 air bladders, nine (9) with laser holes to achieve low air loss function, to increase patient comfort, keep the patient cool and speed recovery. Spring lined air tubes prevent kinks and disruption of air flow. CPR valves provide fast (20-Second) deflation.
