AME 800 Mattress

AME800 is complete mattress replacement system that sets a new standard for the ultimate in pressure relief surfaces. The AME 800 features 20 individual high strength air cushions, which are enclosed in a durable containment system. For added patient protection these cushions rest on a 2” covered foam safety pad.

An exceptionally quiet control unit is user friendly and attaches to the footboard of most hospital beds. Rapid inflate/deflate is available with the optional Quick Inflater at the touch of a button

The purpose of the AME 800 Mattress System is to provide therapeutic benefit to patients at risk or suffering from pressure ulcers. The active component that has contact with the patient is a specialized, multi-cell air mattress sized to fit a standard medical bed frame. The air mattress serves to replace the original mattress and is equipped with 2 air hoses with connectors that mate with the Air Pump/Control Unit.

The Control Unit is a self contained, totally enclosed module that hangs by retractable hooks on the bed frame at the foot of the bed or sits on the floor under the bed. It is provided with a hospital grade electrical cord and a control panel that has selector switches and indicator lights. The switches and indicators are protected under a flexible membrane to keep out liquid spills and enhance clean-up and sanitation. Inside the Control Unit is an air pump, valve motor and air valves that allow the air mattress to operate in cyclic pressure variations. The Control Unit has two user replaceable fuses near the power switch. The fuses are rated at 250 Volts, 1.0 Amp.

Directions for Mattress Placement:
Secure Air Mattress to the frame with straps provided. Make sure the power cord is plugged into a properly grounded A/C 110 Volt outlet.


1) Remove standard mattress from the bed.

3) Strap air support mattress to bed frame on all four sides.

4) Place control unit on the footboard of the bed using the two retractable hooks located on the back of the unit. (If no footboard is available, put pump on the floor away from traffic.)
