What type of mattress to choose for an orthopaedic hospital bed

There are several factors to consider when choosing a hospital bed mattress, ranging from flexibility to thickness, from washability to anti-decubitus properties.


The mattress should not be too rigid so that it can adapt to the different movements of the bed frame.


Patient comfort will largely depend on the thickness of the mattress. If the patient has to spend more than 12 hours a day in bed, it is preferable to invest in a thicker and thus more comfortable mattress.


The mattress should be easy to wash. For people suffering from incontinence, it is essential to opt for a mattress with an antimicrobial cover.

It is also advisable to choose a waterproof and stain-resistant mattress and cover.
