Help Buying Pressure Relief Mattress in the UK

Jul 06, 2016 9:01 AM

Hi Guys I am new to the website. I was wondering if anyone on here has ever bought a pressure relief mattress in the UK?

The mattress is for my wife who suffers with really bad back pain and pressure ulcers (due to to diabetes)

I am thinking of buying one from https://www.gbhealthcare.co.uk/ but wondering if any of you have ever bought one from there or recommend an alternative. Thanks in Advance!

I have a memory foam mattress. One of my best purchases ever. Here in Canada, they can be purchased at most bed companies (we call them sleep shops).

Have you asked for referral to occupational therapy? If she is eligible, social care OT's will access her needs,I have an active air mattress but that's because I'm quadriplegic, but OT's will always provide things like pressure cushions mattresses if the person is eligible and in need of it!! 😊
