poz in form positioning cushions
poz in form positioning cushions are designed to perform various support and comfort function to long-term bedridden people. The microfibers prevent from creep effects that are regularly observed in classical positioning and from early deterioration of the support. The various forms, sizes and models of POZ IN FORM positioning cushions allow a wide range of positioning possibilities.
the highly effective positioning cushions reinforce proper positioning of the long-term bedridden by improving abnormal posture, by providing even weight distribution and by preventing pressure sores while implementing security of use and limiting microbial infections.
the pharmatex Silver (205 g/m) covers on the poz IN FORM positioning cushion are removable and washable. The release of silver ions in the coating of polyurethane of Pharmatex prevents bacterial growth (.99.90% reduction of bacteria in test ISO 22196:2007). the breathability of the Pharmatex (.500g/m/24H – 37 degrees C/65 R.H) significantly reduces maceration.
there are three sizes of the universal cushion and they can be used in many different ways. When lying down the 550mm x 400mm size can be used for the knee flexion and a moderate hip abduction. The smaller cushions help to hold the patient in optimal positioning thus reducing bedsore risks and abnormal postures.
triangle shaped cushion
this cushion adapts to all morphologies. Placed under knees, it supports the knees’ joint, prevents the patient from sliding downwards and reduces friction and shearing effects on the sacrum’s area. It can be used in a semi-fowler position and helps to maintain a perfect position while relieving pressure in sensitive areas(sacrum, ischial tuberosities, heels) and shifting it to low-risk zones(calves, thighs and back).
Placed between legs, it reduces friction and shearing effects on thighs and knees’ area. It can also be used under ankles to relieve pressure.
this cushion can be used in addition to universal, triangle or cylindrical cushions to support the posture correction. Put around the neck, this cushion comfortably supports the patient’s head
