Please consider other various sizes of the Bed Wedge (sold separately) before deciding which is best for you.

The foam has a waterproof material cover that can be wiped clean and placed in a pillowcase for patient comfort. It can be used between a patient’s legs to prevent pressure.

There is a wide flap along one edge which can be folded under. The advantage of this flap is to allow air to move slightly when someone is lying on it. This means that it doesn’t feel like lying on a balloon.

Using with a Positioning (Receptor) Sheet

Bed Wedges are available with some Hook Tape under the base to attach to Pelican’s Sleep System Positioning Sheet. For extra padding or more Thermoregulating, the Wedges can be used with a Vented Overlay Pad. This Pad goes under the patient and can make it easier to turn them to assist placing the Wedges.

 

Some Uses For The Bed Wedge

  • Back Support: When sitting up in bed, the Wedge can be placed behind the person’s back. This provides good support for the lower back/posterior to lean against. A normal pillow can also be used for upper back support.
  • Anti-Slide Wedge: When the person is sitting up in bed, place the Wedge under the legs hard up against the groin. The Wedge will comfortably help the person to stay in position sitting up, and help prevent them sliding back down the bed. This is particularly useful as it can save the Carers having to constantly lift patients back into position.
  • Anti-Roll Wedge: This may help people who need to sleep on their side but will roll onto their backs. Place the wedge against their back. This will be comfortable, and will prevent them from rolling onto their back. The Wedge is very stable and small enough to go under the bed clothes.
  • Cradle Wedge: To take the weight of the blankets off the person’s feet, place the Wedge at the bottom of the bed, under the covers.
