CANTON, Ohio, Aug. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BioTech Medical, Inc., a leading manufacturer and distributor of premium healthcare mattresses and wheelchair cushions, announced today it has received VA-Award FSC Group 65, Part II, Section A (Contract V797D-30197) to supply support surfaces (medical mattresses) to government activities authorized to utilize the Federal Supply Schedule.

"We are very excited to offer the BTM Original Tempur-Med® Healthcare Mattress to the government for purchase and are looking forward to re-introducing it to the many Veteran Affair's facilities that embraced it several years ago." said Andrea Goren, Executive Director of BioTech Medical.

The BTM Original Tempur-Med®Healthcare Mattress is based on Tempur-Pedic's internationally recognized 6" non-powered therapeutic support surface. Manufactured using a proprietary grade of TEMPUR® material primarily utilized in healthcare applications, the mattress core configuration and durable, moisture-impervious, medical grade cover provide the user with effective pressure distribution in a low shear micro-environment. Its ability to absorb much of the compressive, tensile and shear stresses believed to be associated with the development of deep tissue injury is among the reasons the mattress has shown solid efficacy in the prevention and treatment of pressure related lesions through Stage III. The BTM Original Tempur-Med® mattress is available to fit acute care and home care medical beds.
