Support Surfaces

Your Partner in Pressure Ulcer Prevention

With 40+ years of experience in manufacturing pressure redistribution surfaces, Medline knows support surfaces. We partner with our customers to develop comprehensive strategies and deliver strategic product solutions for reducing pressure, shear, friction and moisture for patients and residents.

Acute Care Support Surfaces

Medline’s comprehensive approach to pressure redistribution begins the moment a patient enters the hospital. Our full line of support surface products uses the most advanced pressure redistribution features with best-in-class technology to minimize the risk of facility-acquired pressure ulcers.

Self-Adjusting Mattresses
EqualizeAire mattresses provide you with an easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain mattress that can be used for high-risk patients for prevention and during treatment of pressure ulcers.

Therapeutic Foam Mattresses
TheraTech pressure redistribution mattresses feature independent load bearing cells, which allow the mattress to completely conform to the contours of the body, greatly reducing interface pressures and natural shear forces.

OR Table and Stretcher Pads
Pads help ensure optimal pressure redistribution before surgery transport, during surgery and after surgery transport. Our pads have three therapeutic layers that work together to provide excellent pressure redistribution. Custom sizing available.

Mattress Assessment Program

Pressure ulcers are less costly to prevent than treat.1 Regularly repositioning patients and installing pressure redistribution mattresses are two practices that can help reduce the risk of pressure ulcers; however, over time, mattresses lose their effectiveness.

Medline’s Mattress Assessment Program can help you evaluate your support surfaces and take the right steps to reach your wound prevention and treatment goals.
