How It Works

 An Air-Matt Transfer Mattress moves a patient on a soft nylon air mattress inflated with low-pressure, high-volume air. Holes in the underside allow air to escape. The escaping air acts as a lubricant, reducing friction, making movement of the mattress and the patient nearly effortless.



Less physical effort and strain reduces caregiver injuries, predominantly the back injuries associated with lateral transfers and patient repositioning. Fewer injuries equate to fewer workers’ compensation claims, less time lost to injuries, less light duty assignments and increased caregiver job satisfaction. Additionally, the Air-Matt Transfer Mattress reduces patient physical movement that often leads to pain and discomfort. It supports the patient safely and results in a smooth, secure transfer, enhancing patient satisfaction.
