Water/gel mattresses are specialized mattresses that provide optimum protection from pressure ulcers and are strong and durable in nature. They provide the most needed comfort a patient or a regular user might need for sound, comforting sleep promoting overall wellbeing. Gel mattresses work on the visco gel polymer technology which is revolutionary and designed to provide unprecedented pressure distribution and rapid heat dissipation system. A water mattress is indicated for therapeutic use and is said to improve your physical and mental health. Sleeping on a water mattress is likely to leave you feeling refreshed and free of stress levels and mental fatigue.
Water therapy has always been considered beneficial for improving blood circulation through the body which promotes overall well-being. Water beds work on this same premise and are suitable for anyone suffering from asthma or allergies because they help prevent dust and dust mite build-up which is likely to happen with regular beds. Sufferers of arthritis, rheumatism, fibromyalgia, lupus and joint/bone/muscular conditions may find relief from their conditions on using a waterbed. Most of these beds are temperature controlled and the warm water used is geared to provide a restful sleep.
Gel mattresses consist of gel bladders which are encased in high density foam to allow even weight distribution from the heel to the entire leg. Gel mattresses are said to make the mattress soft and comfortable and is cool to the body. They provide the right amount of support, increased air circulation and breathability.
Combining gel foam with memory foam provides a cost-effective sleeping experience with positives of both memory foam and comb gel. The heat accumulation of memory foam is done away with by using gel technology and the cost of using only gel is also brought down by incorporating memory foam.
Gel memory foam mattress provides optimal comfort and being motion-transfer resistant, it offers undisturbed sleep. Because gel particles or beads are infused with the memory foam, it allows for better airflow. This makes gel memory foam mattress highly breathable and cooling.
Gel memory foam conforms to your body weight and helps in relieving pressure points. It is gentle on your spine keeping it aligned correctly and doing away with back pain. Your body is not allowed to sink into the mattress therefore providing the right support and where you need it the most.

A waterbed mattress supports every part of your body as it conforms to the exact shape of your body.
It eliminates uncomfortable pressure points.
It has been estimated that a conventional spring mattress puts as much as eighty pounds of pressure per square inch on certain parts of your body. A water mattress eliminates that pressure to provide a good nights sleep.
You can easily and safely fill the mattress using a standard garden hose and your fill and drain kit, supplied with the mattress.
Sometimes for ease of handling during transfers, the mattress must be drained. Simply empty the water and roll up or fold your mattress until you are ready to assemble it again. You need not empty the mattress otherwise. A 4 oz. treatment of water conditioner is all you need every 6 months in standard "free flowing mattresses". Specially formulated waterbed conditioner should be added to "baffled" water mattresses.
You should clean the surface of the waterbed mattress once a month with a vinyl cleaner.
Gel mattresses help in preventing and treating pressure ulcers. Many hospitals and nursing homes use gel mattress for prevention and basic treatment of ducubitus ulcers. Gel mattresses are designed to fit over existing hospital bedframes.
