NYOrtho Positioning Wedge
Patients requiring additional positioning and support.
NYOrtho Positioning Wedges are utilized to re-position bed-ridden patients, helping eliminate pressure points over the bony prominences, which, in turn, reduces the occurrence of pressure ulcers. NPUAP and AHRQ guidelines suggest using a 40-degree lateral inclined position when turning patients to help avoid pressure on the hip.
- Recommended 40° angle of incline helps relieve pressure on hipbone and coccyx.
- Breathable, low shear, stretch cover with Antimicrobial protection reduces friction.
- Slip resistant bottom prevents sliding.
- Meets CA 117-2013.
