    The one I am familiar with is not LAL...it is actually an alternating pressure pad (over lay or mattress) which is not as effective for pressure reduction nor for pressure ulcer treatment.

    Have you looked on eBay? There are a lot of LAL mattresses on sale there now, some with low prices from more well known manufacturers (such as Invacare, Roho, etc.).

    Just double checking - I've noted a lot of "low air loss" over lays and wondering if anyone has a great over lay.

    Or, is the full mattress the logical and definite best thing to get?

    Overlay LAL pads nearly all bottom out too easily, esp. if the head of the bed is ever elevated. A full replacement LAL mattress is much superior for pressure reduction.
