    Waterproof mattress cover - sweating

    As a quadriplegic I tried many waterproof mattress covers, but all of them make me heavy sweat and become hard for my carer to handle me and turn in the bed.


    Best solution for me is ordinary sheet and over transversal sheet, but when appear accidental leakage I soaked mattress to. Big problems.


    What is yours experience addressed on this problem?

    Here are a couple of options for washable, reusable underpads to protect your mattress. You have some choices how to position these, ie., either sleep right on the pads or put them on top of a regular mattress pad and make the bed with a fitted sheet over the underpad.

    There are hundreds of customer reviews but almost nobody mention sweating while lie down on it.

    I expect the waterproof sheets or mattress covers you talked about in your original post are mostly vinyl and that is what is causing you to sweat so much. Vinyl sheeting also becomes brittle and cracks.

    I think the key is making sure the product is described as "breathable." I use a breathable, reusable, washable underpad on top of a regular mattress pad like this one, http://www.thecompanystore.com/overf...cm_mmc=GPLA-_-[ADL][Google][PLA][Computer]HighPriority-_-ComputerHigh-_-MB27-T-WHITE&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIqNzW4cK12gIVDttkCh0oZwpiEA YYBiABEgL2H_D_BwE&kwid=productads-adid%5E185247779036-device%5Ec-plaid%5E301925757801-sku%5EMB27@ADL4T@ADL4WHITE-adType%5EPLA, then pull a fitted sheet over the underpad. On top of the fitted sheet, I have a draw sheet (two layers of sheeting) that tucks into both sides of the bed. I put a breathable, reusable, washable underpad between the two layers of sheeting.

    I have a medical sheepskin on top of the drawsheet, so if I have an accident, the sheepskin does get wet, but it is easily removed and washable. Below the sheepskin, I have two layers of protection from moisture.

    Your profile indicates you are male. You might want to try incontinence pouches that fit over the penis and can collect urine leakage.
