The Postura Askle Half-Moon Positioning Microbead Cushion is designed to help prevent pressure ulcers in sacrum, ischium and heel.
Positioning cushions allow the repositioning of patients quickly and easily in different postures in order to relieve pressure applied on areas at risk of pressure ulcers. This in turn means the patient is much more comfortable and has an improved quality of life.
Pressure ulcers in sacrum and ischium regions occur in slumped forward sitting positions or in unadapted positions. Pressure ulcers in the ischium region are frequent, especially in paraplegic patients. Experts recommend to position patients in Semi-Fowler position to relieve pressure in sacrum, ischium and heel regions.
