REDUCE PRESSURE INJURY RISK while maintaining trunk stabilization with The Backbone Turning Wedge by Jewell Nursing Solutions. The Backbone Wedge follows the 30-degree tilt position recommendation of the National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel.
NON-SKID SURFACE reduces slipping on advanced care air flow mattress surfaces. Compatible with low air loss, alternating air flow, lateral rotation and air fluidized surfaces. Has the same soft and gentle antimicrobial water resistant nylex on top side.
PATENTED BILATERAL SYMMETRICAL ANGLES with contoured edge for superior comfort and control. Avoids direct contact with the sacral / coccyx area, The Backbone Turning Wedge takes the pressure off the spine, helps distribute weight evenly, and protects the tailbone from touching the sitting surface.
HIGH-EFFICIENCY LAYERED FOAM optimizes pressure distribution. Engineered to provide extremely low skin interface pressure, the high-density foam deters formation of pressure ulcers for greater comfort of patients in long-term care facilities.
MOISTURE-PROOF COVER is vapor-permeable to enhance micro-climate control and maximize hygiene. Because it wipes clean with a disinfectant towelette, The Backbone Turning Wedge is easy to maintain and suitable for multi-patient use.
