The cover of the cushions is made of a material called Polyurethane coated polyester, which is a light polyester material that has a fire-retardant polyurethane coating on both sides. Furthermore, the cover is treated with a water-repellent agent.
This set contains three positioning cushions that can be combined to create comfortable patient positioning and improve work health and safety.
Positioning for Intimate Hygiene
By combining the cushions LEJRELET Pad High and Wedge, you can create a stable side-lying position with plenty of room for performing intimate hygiene on clients who are unable to do so themselves. Place one leg on top of Pad High and place Wedge in front of the chest for the client to lean into for a slightly forward-tilting lateral position. With this position, the upper body falls comfortably forwards into the Wedge while the leg is lifted so that the hip joint becomes loose. This position is both comfortable and makes sure that the healthcare staff has easy accessibility and visibility when performing intimate hygiene. If the client has long lower legs, a Pad Low can be rolled up and positioned below the foot to ensure that the foot doesn't dangle.
It also ensures their work health and safety, as they do not have to stabilize the patient while washing.
This support cushion set can also be used to create a 30° position by placing Wedge on the flat side at the client’s back and gently letting the client fall backwards while placing their leg on top of Pad High. In this position, the sacrum and coccyx are completely exposed, and it can therefore be used to relieve pressure on these high-risk areas.
Individual Bend at the Knees
Using Wedge and Pad High, it is possible to create a knee-break exactly where the client’s knees are, by placing wedge with the flat inwards and the lower legs on tip of Pad High and relieve the legs, heels, and lower back.
The set is usable for
- Stabil side-lying position e.g. when performing intimate hygiene or other treatments performed in the bed
- Relieving of the heels and legs
- 30° positions
The cover on all the cushions is slip-resistant, which means that the positions will remain in place for as long as needed. This is particularly useful when performing treatments or relieving pressure ulcers.
The positioning cushion LEJRELET Pad High is also suitable for home care situations.
The positioning cushion LEJRELET Wedge is not only suitable for care homes and hospitals but can also be used singlehandedly at home
This support cushion, LEJRELET Pad Low, is suitable for multiple positions that can be created at home as well as at professional care facilities.

LEJRELET cushions can be wiped clean with water and disinfectant liquids or poured over with boiling water. We recommend that the pillows are not machine washed, as water can seep through the seams, after which the foam takes a long time to dry. The cover cannot be removed, and we recommend that no other cover be placed on the outside of the pillows, as this may reduce the effects of the cushions.
The LEJRELET Tube 125, Tube 250, Pad Low and Oval are all made of 100 % viscoelastic foam. The foam is pressure relieving, provides a large support surface and high comfort for the client, as the foam forms in the desired position.
LEJRELET Wedge and Pad High are both made with a core of polyurethane foam covered with visco-elastic foam. This combination makes the cushions firm and supportive as well as provides an effective pressure relieving quality.
No, you can not. All the covers are either welded or sewn together. The only model with a zipper is the LEJRELET Pad High. It is made that way purely out of constructional reasons. The cover is not intended to be removed and we do not sell spare covers for the cushions separately.
LEJRELET set without tubes
This set of three support cushions is a great standard set for most clients and patients. The support cushions are particularly useful for clients, that cannot support themselves in the side-lying position, or who have sensitive legs and heels that need relieving.
The set includes:
LEJRELET Pad High which is a leg support cushion. It is designed based on the anatomy of the pelvis and is therefore 15 cm tall. It can be used to support one leg in the side-lying position, 30-degree position, or to raise both legs in the supine position.
LEJRELET Wedge is ideal for creating stability either by placing it in front of the client’s torso or behind the client’s back when lying on the side. The cover is slip-resistant, meaning that the cushion prevents the patient or client from moving around.
LEJRELET Pad Low can be placed under either Wedge or Pad High to make them slightly higher. It can also be rolled up or folded to function as an abduction wedge, as a knee abduction cushion or as neck support.
