|Question:||Could you please advise if this would be ok for my father who lives in a nursing home. has just started to get a pressure sore on this bottom. Does this one have a pump or not. Thank you|
This may reduce the pressure sores your father is getting, however as it is a static (stationary) pad, it may not be as effective as an alternating pressure pad. This unit does not include a pump.
We would likely recommend that you select something like our Aero-Pulse Alternating Pressure Pump and Pad system. This item is the same concept, an "air mattress" however, this unit has a pump that continually alternates pressure (or fullness) of air in different cells, thereby reducing pressure on any certain point of the body.
