Mattresses, Bed, Medicated Filling

Definition : Bed Mattresses filled with buckwheat hulls to provide comfort and pressure relief to the user. These mattresses typically consist of an outer cover of fabric (e.g., cotton) sewn into many sections filled with thousands of outer coverings (i.e., hulls) of buckwheat (an annual Asian plant having small triangular fruits) seeds. Buckwheat hulls are not heat conductors; they are frequently flattened before filling the mattress. Buckwheat hull mattresses are intended to provide a non-expensive, comfortable organic surface for sleeping that may reduce perspiration and/or allergic reactions; they may also reduce the pressure delivered from the mattress surface to the patient's skin (e.g., to prevent pressure sores).
