The Bariatric Turn Wedge Body Positioning Aid allows users to easily position a client at a desired angle for optimum comfort and pressure relief. Caregivers will find this lightweight bed positioning aid simple and easy to use.
The patented design of the Bariatric Turn Wedge Body Positioning Aid was developed using feedback from wound care specialists and nurses, and addresses concerns that arise when using a lateral positioning device for an immobile bariatric patient. This wedge allows the client to be laterally positioned in gradual increments, allowing caregivers to provide a controlled angle of turn up to 60°. The non-skid surface effectively stabilizes the client's position. The wedge easily supports clients weighing up to 600 pounds and is ergonomically engineered for minimal skin contact. The wedge can be used as a standalone solution or as an adjunctive therapy to standard pressure ulcer prevention systems.
The Bariatric Turn Wedge Body Positioning Aid provides better body support than pillows and blankets or other non-wound care specific body positioning aids. It measures 18 inches long, 9 inches high, 13 inches wide, and weighs 20 oz.
