Pressure-relief support surface. (Product Focus: Pressure Relief).

A key element of the Tempur-Medical [R] Ultimate Skin Management Program [TM] (TUSMaP[TM]), the Tempur-Med[TM] mattress has been shown effective in reducing the incidence of pressure ulcers in long-term care to levels not thought possible. Facilities with histories of 6 to 10% incidence rates discover that conversion to Tempur-Med mattresses on all their beds helps them achieve incidence rates of less than 2% and, for many, less than 1%.

Facility-wide conversion to Tempur-Med is cost efficient. The number of rental support surfaces required to attain quality outcomes can be significantly reduced, freeing up the funds necessary to finance the conversion. The therapeutically useful life of the Tempur-Med mattress is guaranteed for 7 years.
