Who is Squirrel Medical?


Squirrel Medical™ design and manufacture a range of advanced pressure redistributing air mattresses and seating for the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers for use in hospitals, care homes and at home.  

Our patented products have been designed in partnership with prominent physiotherapists, tissue viability nurses and occupational therapists, who understand that self-positioning, physiotherapy and independence is of equal importance as the traditional pressure redistributing qualities of high specification dynamic airflow mattresses.  

Formed in September 2002, our mission has been to create reliable dynamic alternating air mattresses, that are simple to use, easy to clean, clinically effective and competitively priced. Additionally, their patented range of low profile 13cm depth mattresses conform with regulation IEC 60601-2-52, which means they can be used without having to use bed rail “height extensions” to achieve HSE compliance when used in a care environment.

This range of innovative mattresses and seating are renowned for their provision of superior pressure care. All systems come with whisper quiet pumps and are supplied as durable robust designs. Squirrel Medicals™ dynamic airflows are used extensively throughout the UK and are the mattress replacement system (MRS) and alternating air cushion of choice for many of the UK’s leading care providers.
