The rebounding foam core ensures even weight distribution for maximum comfort.
How Best To Use the Wedge Pillow
There are 3 main positions the wedge pillow can be used and they are as follows.
For patients who are suffering breathing difficulties or need relief from sinus problems, reflux or protecting against bed sores, the wedge pillow should be positioned beneath the upper body. This provides upper body elevation for ease of breathing and also takes pressure off the spine, buttocks and sacral regions.
In this position, the wedge pillow is located under the lower portion of the patient’s body, allowing it to elevate the legs. This position improves vascular drainage and circulation in the legs. Elevating the heels provides access and aeration to promote recovery for injuries. Leg elevation will also help to reduce swelling for swollen ankles and other leg injuries.
In the third position, the wedge is positioned behind the patient’s back, to stop the patient from rolling over. This helps to protect the spine and reduce sacral pressure.
Alternatively, the wedge pillow can be located against the front of the patient, preventing forward roll. This protects the patient against respiratory function impairment as well as refluxial dysfunction.
The Benefits Of Using the Body Support Wedge Pillow
