Benefits of air mattress as compared to foam mattress

slyounts posted:
My neighbor asked me to find out about the benefits of air and foam mattresses and the pros and cons of each. I have not had any luck in finding anything out and am hoping someone here can help. Which is better for someone confined to bed? What about the development of bed sores? Which is more comfortable? What about support? You know all the usual questions, I don't know what to ask about, but I hope someone knows what the basic questions are. Many thanks!!!
