    SCI Nurse - Invacare MA95Z mattress

    Good day, nurses,

    I've been looking at low air loss, lateral rotation mattresses since my problem with Medicare and my dead mattress this summer (in case I can find a funding source, or win the lottery), and the Invacare MA95Z seems to be one that does what I need, and can be found for a bit less than a king's ransom (not much less.) I can't find any used LAL, rotation mattresses. What is/are your opinion/opinions on this mattress?

    Thank you very much,

    P.S. The Turn-Q had been mentioned in a prior thread. a) it's much more expensive, b) I couldn't find it on Invacare's website, nor could someone at Invacare with whom I spoke.

    The Invacare TurnQ has not been made for several years, so is only available used. As I remember, the Invacare MA95Z is what they replaced the TurnQ with in their product line. The MA90Z is comparable, but only turns 30 degrees instead of the 45 degrees offered by the MA95Z. That may be sufficient for you, and it is less expensive.

    Here is a TurnQ I found on-line:

    This one is comparable, but less expensive:

    Another option might be the Joerns/Triline TurnCair.

    Thank you. I had found a couple of those; others are new to me. Still have to find moolah, as I don't want my sore to open back to Stage IV to qualify for Medicare to cover a new LAL rotation mattress for me. I'm still peeved it wouldn't cover a replacement for my Clinidyne - I can't help that the company went out of business, so no parts to repair my mattress.

    I have an alternating pressure mattress right now. Sore is still healed - small red areas on it are gone.
