Initial reports on this unit have stated that there is less back pain and that facial muscles become more relaxed as the head maintains a midline position, in some patients salivating has ceased.
Patients using this unit find the comfort and positioning more conducive for eating and digestion, therefore over a period of time the general well being of the patient is noticed, especially as organs are back in their correct position.
Patients and carers are reporting that the correct sitting position can be maintained over many hours and that the sufferer is reporting that they are comfortable with no slipping and feel their dignity has been restored. The unit is simple to use, aesthetically pleasing, lightweight and extremely transportable.
Areas of Patient Care & Support:
The Support System cushions have been designed with the aim to provide a 24 hour effective positioning system which will decrease muscle spasm, reduce tone, stimulate circulation and support limbs evenly, therefore helping to prevent pressure areas. Maintaining good body symmetry the Cushion Support System helps keep essential organs in place, therefore allowing the whole body to function correctly.
Having worked closely with therapists over the years we have been made aware of the many positional problems they face and now we produce over 80 different units to cope with their requirements.
The Support Cushion System unit consist of a shaped waterproof inner unit which can be wiped down with any sterile agent without losing its properties, this is filled with a specific density, fire retardant polystyrene bead, and is covered with a linen cover for easy cleaning.
We can now also offer for assessment purposes a waterproof fabric with inherent antibacterial properties that can be easily cleaned between patients use. Both of these covers are fire retardant, removable and washable. All units can also be auto-claved for extra reassurance.
Our range of Support System Cushions are very lightweight makes them easy to position, manoeuvre and transport.
