Incredibly easy to set up. Everything comes in a single box which isn't heavy at all.

Works well.

Whatever you do, choose a mattress with "low air loss" -- do not buy a mattress that ONLY offers alternating pressure!
There is good evidence from studies that "low air loss" mattresses help prevent and heal bed sores, but no good evidence for alternating pressure.
This one has both. you can disable the alternating pressure if you like)

The low air loss on this mattress is CONTINUOUS, which is a good thing!

Some other mattresses (such as several from invacare) have low air loss that is only "on demand" -- you have to push a button which then only activates it for perhaps 20 minutes. I believe continuous low air loss is sure to work more effectively.

The noise is perhaps twice as loud as a big aquarium pump. I found I could eliminate much of the noise if I paid careful attention to the hose connector where it plugs into the pump, a slight gap will makes a loud hissing noise. Press it in well, or tie it if you have to, and no problem. There also are some vibrations generated that propagate through the bed frame, but aren't felt by the patient unless they lean on a rail.
If you had absolutely no other noise generating devices you still might be annoyed by it, but I'm managing to sleep fine in the same room.

What is low air loss? There are zillions of tiny holes on the mattress constantly emitting small amounts of air, which prevents and heals bed sores by keeping skin cool and dry.

In order for a low air loss mattress to effectively prevent bed sores, you need to minimize the amount of material between the patient and mattress!

So far so good. Ordered this in early-August and have been very pleased with product to date. My brother (diagnosed with M/S) was recently released from hospital and was sent home with a gel pad which was absolutely miserable to lay on for an extended period or time. Sleeping was very uncomfortable and each morning he woke up with sore limbs & burning itchy buttocks. I was so nervous he would end up with a bed sore and started researching Low Air Loss Mattresses which I knew would help maintain skin integrity. Well, we're approx. 45 days into it and he's doing very well and loving his new air mattress. This particular mattress does everything it claims (so far that is). Setting go from soft to firm. Only one drawback: noise level of the pump...after placing a pillow between pump and footboard, however; pump noise was substantially reduced. Set-up was simple and I am not set-up savvy with anything. The best part was the cost. Researched several websites & Amazon was the least expensive (saving over $900 from one competitor for identical product) - so that was a real bargain! (BLESS YOU, AMAZON)! For anyone looking at this mattress or similar items, give it a try. My brother's insurance did not cover this item, that's why price was so important. But again, Amazon was the absolute best price I found and he is thrilled with his new bed thus far. In other words...if he he sleeps well, my hubby & I sleep well and for the past several weeks, me & my husband have been sleeping like babies! lol So, YES, we love this mattress , too! :)

Last year I broke my leg and had to have surgery. The hospital bed I had was pure misery! So when I had to have one at home I got one like this from my insurance company. Since I have type 1 diabetes, and am prone to bedsores. I loved it so much,I purchased this one for Valentines Day for my husband. We got rid of our king mattress and put these two together on the king bed platform. It works great like that and we are getting the best nights sleep. We both have back issues and this helps. However, I believe it really is more of a queen sized bed together.

Update: it is one year later and we still love the beds. However, my husband now finds himself on a flat bed come morning! We are now trying to find out how to get a replacement through the year warranty. Keep your fingers crossed!
Here is my update: we called and emailed Amazom about our problem. The next day they sent a new mattress for my husband! They picked up the problem one and within four days he had a new Drive Low air loss mattress! Such service! Outstanding! Cannot thank you enough! This one is quieter and my husband is so happy.
If you are on the fence, don't worry? Amazom stands behind their products!

My mother in law needed something for her bed sores, so this product was suggested by the local medical supply company. At the time they said it would all be covered by insurance. A month later, we came to find it was not. We tried discussing the need with the insurance company, but alas it did not help. The local medical supply company gave us a bill for $1600, a fee that seemed extremely high, and non negotiable. Upon researching on the internet, I found the exact product here on Amazon. I was hesitant at first as the price was extremely different, however ordered it anyway knowing I could ship back if it wasn't the full bed with blower. The product came promptly being a prime member, was easy to set up, and was exactly the same product. To say the least, I was happy, the family was happy, and more important than anything my mother in law was happy in knowing that the product that was helping her for the month previously could continue to be used. Thank you for not gouging on this product.
