For positioning & position changes
If a person makes too few spontaneus movement, there is an increased risk of pressure uclers. Regular changes of position reduce the risk of pressure ulcers. Position as required in both reclining and seated position.
Curera® Positioning is a range of stable pillows, rolls, and wedges that meet most needs for support and relief. They are also a great help when changing dressings and for patient care.
Curera® Support Wedge can be used for placing the patient/user in a lateral position to relieve the sacrum, which is a particularly sensitive area. Two support wedges must be used together for lateral positioning.
The Support Wedge comes with a Hygiene Cover. The hygiene cover does not allow liquid or air to penetrate, but is vapour permeable (vapour is wicked away). Make sure that the patient is positioned corretly so that airways are unobstructed.
The support wedges are to be placed differently, depending on the mattress being used. Refer to the user instructions for more information.
Working with Curera® Positioning is simple, and the beneftis are many. Contact Care of Sweden for training and further information.
