Positioning
Invacare Heelpad

The Heelpad is designed to reduce pressure on the vulnerable heel area. The controlled volume of gel in the sacs allows pressure displacement and even weight distribution. Pressure on a patient's heels are kept to a minimum when the heels are in contact with the gel sacs. The Heelpad was designed to be used in conjunction with the Invacare Odstock Wedge, but can also be used independently as an effective pressure reducing device.

Invacare Leg Trough

The Leg Trough has been designed in consultation with clinicians to provide maximum support for the whole leg. The Leg Trough elevates the heels and allows them to be suspended over the edge of the trough. This provides maximum pressure relief for the vulnerable heel area.

Invacare Odstock Wedge

The Odstock Wedge was developed in partnership with clinicians to assist in the reduction of interface pressures on the sacrum and heels without significantly increasing pressure on the thighs or calves. It is designed to improve and maintain patient posture in the recumbent position, and to reduce the tendency for the client to slip down the bed, thereby reducing shearing forces on the sacrum. The Odstock Wedge  is ideal for improving posture for those with back discomfort.

 

 

Invacare Flexipad

The Flexipads are highly versatile pads filled with silicone gel,and can be used to position and support limbs, joints, the torso or the head. The Flexipads can be used to position limbs for treatment, whilst recovering from an injury, or to assist in maintaining a more comfortable position to alleviate pain.

Matrx Flo-tech Back Support

The Matrx Flo-tech Back Support  has been designed to provide added stability to a wheelchair or standard armchair and can be used in conjunction with any Matrx Flo-tech cushion. The Back Support provides excellent comfort and improved positioning, which in turn helps to improve or maintain independence whilst in the seated position. The unique supportive design offers additional support and may provide protection from pressure ulcer formation and spinal deformities.

Maxxcare Heel Boot

The award winning MaxXcare Pro Heel Boot provides excellent comfort and pressure reduction for the vunerable heel area.  It can be used for patients lying down or in sitting positions, as a preventative measure, or if a patient already has a decubitus ulcer in the heel area to aid healing.
