Drawbacks of Traditional Alternative Air Mattress

  • Assume the posture and profile of human body behave as the flat shape, but it must be 3D profile for real body.

  • Cannot track the predilection site to precisely release the pressure.

  • In some of cases, the conventional mattress may make the patient worse and worse, because the local site may suffer 2x or 3x pressure, comparing with normal sites.  

The studies cannot reveal obvious effectiveness in clinical trial only if the specific cases can reach 30% at most.​
