How is it to lie on ?
Nurses and doctors testing out the mattress claim that
the mattress feels different than what it looks like:
It feels soft and at the same time giving the easy movement.
Small movements give pressure changes. The patient laying
on the Carebed is not fixed in one position restricting natural
A patient can lay in the same position on the Carebed for a
long time without feeling unpleasant. This ensures a deeper
sleep and a feeling of being rested.
The Carebed is not sticky to lie on. A patient with large
temperature changes day and night will get sweaty on any
type of mattress/surface. In cases where the patient feels
sticky using the Carebed, a thin overlay mattress can be used
to reduce the feeling.
How to use
The Carebed is easy to use and it is difficult to do anything wrong.
The patient has to lay on the mattress when filling
with air for 1 minute. Tighten the green cap firmly after filling.
Over weight patients
Patients up to 150 kg can use the Carebed. When the patient
weight is between 120 and 150 kg the mattress has to be filled with
air prior to use. Then lay the patient on the mattress
and release air using a pen (or similar) until there is 1 to 2cm
between the patient and the bed.
Refilling of air
The mattress material will stretch the first 24 hours and requires
refilling the second day in use. After that when needed.
A best practise is to refill air when changing linens.
Carebed can be cleaned by using any detergent/disinfectants
on the market. Clinical alcohol can also be used on the Carebed.
As long as the Carebed keeps the air it will provide the required
There are mattresses that have been used for close to 10 years.
Empty the Carebed for air and roll the mattress together.
Best storage at room temperature.
Carebed is made of a material without environmental poison
It can be thrown away, but it is recommended to deliver it to the

wound or red skin.
