Tab Features & Benefits


Feature


Benefit


Viscoelastic foam with memory effect

Viscoflex® was specifically designed for pressureulcer prevention.Very high-density viscoelastic foamgives our Viscoflex® cushions better resistance to subsidence compared to industrial-type viscoelasticfoams. The memory effect allows precise moulding of the body therefore provides better pressure distribution and facilitates blood circulation.


The Form


The positioning wedge has lower limb support at thigh level and a hollowed sacrum zone to help redistribute pressure to lower risk areas of the user’s body. The supports at thigh level also enhance user comfort by avoiding the rotation of the vertebral column, contributing to more effective use. It also prevents contact between the knees which can be at a high risk of pressure ulcers in the occurrence of prolonged contact.

 


The stabilisation insert


The 30° positioning wedge has a central foam anatomical nub which is moulded to a soft viscoelastic surface. The nub is a key feature for the effective use of the wedge as it enables the 30° position to be maintained over time by acting as a support structure. The ergonomic shape of the insert acknowledges the curves of the user’s body which helps to reduce pressure.

 

The cover

 

The breathable, waterproof and vapour permeable cover promotes comfort whilst aiding infection control. The wedge is covered with a soft, bi-stretch polyurethane cover and features a non-slip base and carry handle to facilitate transfers from one room to another. The cover is also marked with a marker label to ensure perfect positioning.
