The term "medical mattress" refers to a mattress that is meant to provide support for the joints, back, and entire body. The medical field of orthopaedics, which focuses on abnormalities or deformities of the spine and joints, has an impact on these mattresses. Sleep, in addition to being a necessary component of human operations, is a process for recharging energy reserves. Sleep and rest are critical for persons recovering from certain illnesses. Medical mattresses assist in providing the greatest possible environment for a patient's proper rest. Furthermore, because a hospitalized patient spends the most of his time in bed, a mattress must have particular properties that allow individuals to rest on it for long periods of time without threatening their health. When people are immobilized for lengthy periods of time, hospital bed mattresses, also known as medical or therapeutic mattresses, may give comfort and prevent negative effects. Pressure ulcers are a problem for people who require a hospital bed mattress.
The global medical mattress market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 4.2% over the period of next 5 years.
