    Rotating Mattress troubles.

    First a little background info. I am a C4-5 quad and have been on an air-mattress for 16 years. For many years I've been using the Invacare Turn-Q mattress but Invacare discontinued making replacement parts. So I bought the Invacare Microair Lateral Rotation MA95Z. Now every time I try the MA95Z I wake up around 4 a.m. burning up with a fever above 99 degrees. I've had the motor replaced and still wake up with a fever. I am frustrated and don't know what to do. Is there another mattress that "breathes" better? Has any one else had this issue with the MA95Z? Thanks in advanced.

    You sure it's a mattress problem? I'm only using since my injury 8 years ago, but never causes me fever. I dont think there's any way it can cause you fever unless you never clean the sheet. Probably you caught MRSA and your body fluid is still on that mattress?

      Is your blood pressure high when you wake up from this heat?
