Changing bed linens involves a lot of repetitious lifting, bending and kneeling.

The MattressJack mattress lifting system makes bed making easier and safer.  By eliminating heavy lifting and minimizing repetitious bending, the risk of sustaining a lifting injury is greatly reduced.

The MattressJack uses an air supply to raise the entire mattress from the box-spring about 10 inches to an optimal work level. Utilizing a patent pending feature, bed sheets can be easily replaced and secured under the mattress.  Once deflated, the MattressJack remains hidden between the mattress and the box-springs until it is needed again.

Why MattressJack?

When deflated, MattressJack is virtually invisible

As mattresses become larger and heavier, the bed making task becomes even more difficult.

Housekeepers in the hospitality industry as well as homemakers are challenged by the bed making task. Housekeepers in the hotel and motel industry routinely clean 10 to 20 rooms daily. Repetitive and strenuous mattress manipulation may result in physical injury and work loss. A MattressJack on every hotel bed would make the bed making task easier and safer by decreasing the risk of lifting injuries. Fewer injuries translate to fewer sick days, fewer worker’s compensation claims, and lower insurance costs for the hotel operator.

MattressJack has your back!

In many hotels, housekeepers must clean 10 or more rooms per day.  Heavier, more luxurious mattresses are now common and it has been estimated that a single housekeeper lifts the aggregate of 2000 pounds daily.

Not surprisingly, the majority of hotel worker’s compensation related costs are related to lifting injuries in housekeepers.

The Data
Mattress lifter

An Electric Air Pump does all the lifting

The MattressJack uses an electrical pump to raise the heavy mattress from the box springs about 10 inches to an optimal work level to make the bed. The mattress will be lifted in as little as 30-40 seconds.

Linens are easily tucked under the mattress

Once the mattress is up and out of the way it is easy to tuck linens between the inflated mattress jack and the mattress. Also, rotating the mattress is an easy task. A corner can be grabbed and the mattress can be rotated on top of the MattressJack.

MattressJack deflates to become virtually invisible

Once you’ve made your bed, it’s time to deflate the MattressJack. The air-supply will actively remove air from the mattress to achieve expeditious deflation.
Why MattressJack?

MattressJack eliminates strenuous lifting and bending from the bed making task.

Just as homemakers have embraced labor saving devices such as the automatic dishwasher and the washing machine, the MattressJack enables a single person to more easily manage the bed-making task all by her or himself.

 

The MattressJack effortlessly raises the mattress from the box-springs so that the bed linen and blankets can be easily replaced without repeatedly lifting the mattress. By raising the mattress to a comfortable work table height, the MattressJack minimizes the need for repetitive and stressful bending enabling one person to make a large bed. Once the bed making task has been completed, MattressJack is easily deflated and returns to its hidden position where it remains until needed for the next bed making session.

We've Got Your Back!

The MattressJack mattress lifting system, makes the bed making task easier and safer by eliminating the need for any heavy lifting, minimizing repetitious bending and kneeling, and making it possible for a single person to easily rotate a heavy mattress.

The Data Speaks for Itself

This serves to dramatically reduce the risk of lifting injuries.

The Correct Method

The clean bed linen can easily be replaced and secured under the mattress edges while the mattress is raised to an optimal and comfortable work level.

Discretely Stored

Once the clean linen has been secured under the mattress, the MattressJack is deflated and remains hidden between the mattress and box springs until it is needed again.

A MattressJack on every hotel bed would make the bed making task easier and safer by decreasing the risk of lifting injuries. Fewer injuries translate to fewer sick days, fewer worker compensation claims, and lower insurance costs for the hotel operator.

U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics

Hotel workers have markedly higher injury rates than other service industry workers on average: 5 injuries per 100 workers, while the average for all service industries is about 3.4 injuries per 100 workers.

A 2009 report in the American Journal of Industrial Medicine found that housekeepers have higher (7.87 per 100) injury rates than other hotel workers, including banquet servers (2.82 per 100), dishwashers (5.97 per 100) and cooks (5.99 per 100).

The 2010 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report shows that housekeepers had a higher risk of back injury than auto workers who manufactured vehicles and parts.

The idea for the MattressJack system was developed by Dr. Fred R. Amsler, an Orthopedic Surgeon.

Dr. Amsler is now retired and has entered into an exclusive license agreement with PPS, LLC to develop and market the MattressJack system world wide.
