How it works.
The Yearstar air transfer mattress consists of two layers, the upper layer is made of selected fabric for comfort and safety. On the bottom layer, there are many small vent holes whose size, quantity, and locations have been carefully calculated and designed so that when the air mattress is inflated by the air pump, the air in the air mattress will pass through these small holes, forming a thin layer between the air mattress and the bed surface. And at the same time, it can ensure that the amount of air discharged is just right so that when the patient is lying on the air mattress, the mattress can hold the patient securely and also slides effortlessly due to the air layer between the two surfaces which greatly reduces friction.
