Thread: Anybody use a ‘Repose’ air mattress or cushion?

  1. #1

    Anybody use a ‘Repose’ air mattress or cushion?

    If so, is there a trick to connecting the purpose designed pump to the cushion?

    I have one on my wheelchair on which I spend my days, and a mattress on the bed. However, re inflating the darn thing is a pain . The company’s YouTube videos make it look dead easy, but a klutz like me finds it anything but. The unit just falls off the pump and it is a devil of a job to securely connect it for inflation.

    Any bright ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    I’ve only used these in hospital. Judging by the quality I don’t think they are designed for longer term use.
    My wheelchair air cushion had a hole so they lent me a repose cushion to tide me over until my cushion could be replaced after I was discharged.
    The repose air mattresses are no longer in use at my local hospital as most of the normal mattresses are pressure relieving air mattresses that can be switched on and off as required.
