Alternating Pressure Mattress Made Specially for People with TSCI / Spinal Cord Injury.

Traumatic spinal cord injury (TSCI) is a substantial cause of impairment, with serious physical, functional and emotional repercussions. While TSCI will not exclusively compromise the life of the person after the occurrence, the reduction in functional independence has the greatest impact on a lot of people. The TSCI patient requires additional attention and care. Often it’s the immediate family that willingly accepts the role of a healthcare provider. However, many TSCI patients desire to be self-reliant to control their own comfort or even to participate in their care process which includes preventing pressure ulcers.

For most TSCI patients, Skin protection is achieved by using an alternating pressure mattress with low air loss. While though very efficient at skin protection, these systems need a care giver to regulate the standard or basic functions of system including patient comfort. For independent people with spinal cord injuries, this implies that they must count on others to control their comfort.
