In home care the TEMPURMED Overlay Mattress is being used for heavy, elderly or terminal patients to prevent pressure ulcers. The TEMPUR-MED Overlay is placed on top of the existing mattress and the unique visco-elastic TEMPUR Material provides the required pressure relief.
The visco-elastic and thermo active properties ensures optimal pressure relief. Patients that are placed on the TEMPUR-MED Overlay Mattress mould into the material due to body temperature and weight. The body weight is absorbed and distributed. The pressure is distributed over the entire surface, thus reducing the risk of pressure ulcers.

The TEMPUR Material is a visco-elastic, temperature sensitive open cell material which has unique pressure relieving qualities. Unlike ordinary polyurethane which features irregular cell shapes that simply compress under weight and degenerate over a short period of time, the TEMPUR Pressure Relieving Material is composed of billions of visco-elastic spherical shaped, open cells. The cells respond to body temperature and weight then shift and reorganise their position to mould to the exact contours of the patient’s body. The TEMPUR Pressure Relieving Material becomes softer in warmer areas and remains firmer in cooler areas, where less body contact is being made.
