Why the Grande Armadilo?

 Parents or carers often use the Stabilo Grande mattress for long-term lying or even sleeping. Unfortunately lying in the same body position for many hours on the mattress can become uncomfortable, since a good support equals a hard surface – resulting in the possible development of bed sores. That is the reason for which we designed a new pressure-relief comfortable mattress. The Grande Armadillo. more

How the Grande Armadilo works:

The alternating pressure technology gives the best results in bed sores prevention. It allows for shifting supporting areas and pressure level. The pump inflates and deflates the air – the supporting areas change all the time and as a result bed sores don’t occur. Choose between soft and hard versions – even when the bubbles are hard, a person lays on a big surface in comfort. The body is continuously and regularly massaged. The temperature on the surface of the mattress equals room temperature. So instead of 36.6 °C (body temperature) we can achieve ap. 23 °C which also helps to protect against the development of bed sores. more
