The Mattress Extender Block is designed to extend the support given by a mattress.
The gap can either be between the mattress and the footboard, or the mattress and the bed head, depending on the nursing staff’s preference.
It may be best to place it at the head of the bed, under the pillow. This way the edge will not be under a person’s heels.
About the Mattress Extender Block
There are no external seams under the heels no matter which way it is placed on the bed frame. This item is 100% heat sealed.
The dimensions are 90cm x 10cm x 15cm (35″ x 4″ x 6″). Use either the 10cm (4″) or 15cm (6″) side to try to keep the mattress height consistent.
Special sizes can be made to order.
Another accessory for use with mattresses is the Anti-Slide Mattress Pad.
