AbstractThe invention relates to an auxiliary device serving as mattress and consisting of a number of cells (4) fixed to a mattress bottom and extending along the mattress. The cells are individually fillable and evacuable for changing the position of a patient lying on the mattress. The auxiliary device has cloth portions (7; 9) connecting to cells to each other and to the mattress bottom (8) so as to permit substantial lateral movements of the cells relative to the mattress bottom and giving them a certain adaptability with respect to each other.
