PURAP Bedsore Mattress Overlay

The PURAP mattress system is designed specifically to help prevent and treat bedsores (pressure sores, pressure ulcers). It can be used on top of existing mattresses in hospitals, nursing homes, and at home.

How fluid 3D Flotation technology works

The PURAP mattress uses a patented system with a unique fluid layer that dissipates pressure. The fluid layer fills in all the space between you and the mattress overlay and increases direct support area. It does not compress and does not push back (like springs). This helps it dissipate the pressure away from the body towards the sides of the pad.

Fluid 3D Flotation eliminates peak pressure points (pressure hotspots)

Increases contact area to dissipate pressure, provide uniform support

Does not 'pack-down' or 'sink-in' and doesn't lock you in one position

Fluid micro-movements avoid pressure buildup

Born from personal experience

Sores can start developing within 2 hours. Once sores form, they are extremely difficult to get rid of. We should know.

One of our founder's father-in-law developed a bedsore while at a skilled nursing facility. None of the existing products helped and he ultimately passed away due to complications related to his sores.

Our search for something that actually worked led us to create the 3D Flotation technology and our anti-sore products.

PURAP's outperforms alternating air and gel overlays

Air, Gel and Foam Mattresses and Overlays

- Compress and contour according to body-weight distribution, creating highly uneven pressure distribution

Concentrate pressure only on a few contact points (typically areas below your sit bones)

These areas become high pressure points or "pressure hotspots" that cause pain, cut off blood flow, and create pressure sores.
