Global Anti-Decubitus Dynamic Mattresses Market is anticipated to gain immense revenues by 2022, by expanding at a decent CAGR from 2016 to 2022. It is expected to exhibit a significant CAGR over the forecast period (2012 to 2022). It is driven by rising need for these mattresses by bed-ridden patients or patients with decubitus.
Pressure ulcers or decubitus ulcers are formed due to obstruction of blood flow to the affected area. Elderly patients or bedridden patients are highly susceptible to these sores due to non-movement or impaired mobility. According to a survey by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, nearly 20% of patients develop this malady in their own homes. Anti-decubitus dynamic air mattresses provide relief to these patients. These mattresses have multiple chambers that are alternately pumped to alleviate pressure on these ulcers. The condition affects more than 400,000 patients globally.
Manufacturers of medical equipment are developing hybrid mattresses with softer materials as well as additional support equipment such as pumps or monitors. Invacare, an Australian long-term care product company, was one of the first to launch “Softform Premier Active 2”, a dynamic air mattress. The product was equipped with an Active Pump, which can activate air cells to treat severe ulcers. Meditek, a Canadian manufacturer of operating products, launched the Samarit Rollbord, which can be used to transfer decubitus-suffering patients safely to their rooms.
The worldwide anti-decubitus dynamic mattresses market is segmented by product, end user, and region. By product, the market is divided into air cushion, foam, and other mattresses. Foam mattresses are deemed comfortable as well as flexible to handle obese patients. Benmor Medical provides an air cushion in which air levels are filled in alternate cycles. It is made of a stretchable material and can withstand contours of different body shapes. ADS Intelligent, a dynamic mattress by Medical Devices Group, is embedded with smart sensors to record movements of pressure as well as pressure-sensitive areas. It can also change air pressure according to patient size.
Key end users in the market include home use, nursing homes, and hospitals. The aforementioned users utilize dynamic mattresses to relieve pain from pressure ulcers. Hospitals and homes have a high probability of mobility-ridden patients developing pressure ulcers in their settings.

By regional segmentation, the market is fragmented into India, China, Japan, Southeast Asia, Europe, and North America. North America is estimated to lead the global market on account of being home to nearly 18% of the world’s elderly populace by 2025. Increased healthcare expenditure used in treating these patients is expected to drive regional growth. Europe is also expected to display a decent CAGR during the forecast period as nearly 4% of its healthcare budget is directed toward treating pressure ulcers.
Major market players include Talley Inc.; Sidhil Ltd.; Stryker Corporation; Apex Medical Corp.; and Benmor Medical.
