Will it help with bed sores?

For the same reasons mentioned in the backache page, waterbeds can provide substantial relief for bed sore sufferers. Pressure sores are caused by an uneven amount of pressure being applied to certain areas on the body, aggravated by a flat uncompromising mattress surface and perhaps an inability to shift during sleep, due to injury or old age. By spreading pressure evenly over all areas of the body, a waterbed vastly reduces the risk of bed sores, and along with the therapeutic heat it can speed recovery from existing bed sores significantly.
