Market Report Description

The Global Pressure Relief Mattress Market size is expected to reach $2.1 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 5.3% CAGR during the forecast period.

Pressure relief mattresses are mattresses that equally disperse the bodyweight on the pressure points of the body in order to prevent sore spots. Mattress firmness is closely linked to pressure alleviation, and most sleepers prefer models with some contouring. It also helps to decrease force around typical contact points like the shoulders and hips as the comfort system conforms to the body's curves.

A pressure mattress is designed to help people with pressure sores feel more comfortable. The mattress provides a lot of support for the head and body, which helps to ease pressure points. Pressure relief mattresses are different from conventional mattresses because they include specially engineered air pockets that relieve pressure on the body's primary pressure points.

Pressure alleviation is frequently associated with cushioning, but it also includes a higher level of spinal support. Tension in crucial areas, such as the lower back, can be caused by a mattress that is unable to keep the spine on a plane level. The comfort system, as well as the support core, is the two main parts of most mattresses.

The closest layer to the sleeper is the comfort system, which consists of one or multiple layers meant to cushion the body. Firmer materials are often used in the support core to create a sturdy platform and encourage spinal alignment. Comfort systems that are thicker tend to contour more deeply. Memory foam, latex, polyfoam, and micro coils are all common materials for comfort layers. Pressure ulcers are localized skin injuries that may or may not impact the underlying tissue. Decubitus ulcers, pressure sores, bedsores, and pressure injuries are all names for pressure ulcers. Ulcers are treated with a variety of support devices to reduce or relieve pressure. Mattresses are one of the most commonly used supports among them. These mattresses are classified according to the materials they include, the theory they operate on, such as active, reactive, or hybrid, and whether they are powered or non-powered.
