    Please help with opinions of these "true" low air loss mattress's

    I am a C4 quadriplegic 32 years. Had problems with bilateral ischial wounds for many years. Eventually had surgery to grind down the ischial bones. After that surgery was on a Clinatron for three or four years. Due to the fact that bad was unable to go up and down my PCA's backs were being injured. Hill ROM replaced the fluidized therapy with a Flexicare Eclipse, which was a higher level, low air loss that I did very well on until it needed repair. The bed was evidently discontinued, so they refused to fix it. I had to start from scratch with the wound center, failing first on a nonpowered Roho overlay, and then they gave me a Medline Supra pseudo-low air loss mattress. I'm currently developing a wound on my tailbone that I have never had in 32 years being injured. And evidently this is the best method that this vendor has, and Medicare will not assist for another five years. I've been told.
    This leaves me buying out-of-pocket a suitable low air loss bed. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with this company. I've come across.
    I am wondering if they are reputable and if anyone has used them.

    On that particular website, I have found two different mattresses that seem to be similar to what I was on previously. I'm wondering if anyone has used these mattresses and would recommend them. The first one is made by Roho Moxie it moves 1200 L per minute and is $2100.

    the second one is made by Apex is called Pro 36, moves 1800 L per minute and is $2700.

    There is a difference between low air loss and True low air loss. I have an Invacare True low air loss. They originally tried giving me a regular low air loss, but it wouldn't do, so they traded it out. I don't know anything about that company but be sure you get the correct bed.
