Product information

This wedge cushion is designed based on the anatomy of the human chest. This makes the support cushion particularly suited for placing in front of the client’s chest or at their back.

The wedge cushion combines two types of foam, to provide firmness and stability to, while also being pressure relieving.

Stability in the side-lying position

The wedge shape and the unique slip-resistant cover makes this support cushion ideal for creating comfortable and stable side-lying positions which is useful during intimate hygiene and dressing in bed, wound care on the lumbar or pelvis areas or for relaxation and sleep. In these cases, the wedge cushion can be placed either at the back or at the front of the client depending on their needs.

As a support cushion in the back, Wedge ensures that uneasy clients cannot turn themselves onto the back, while staff are trying to perform their tasks. When the cushion is placed at the chest, it ensures that the client is supported and cannot tip over onto their stomach. For very uneasy clients use two Wedges – one at the front and one at the back, to reduce the risk of externalizing behaviour.

To ensure even better working conditions, combine Wedge with LEJRELET Pad High, which is a support cushion for the client’s legs. This combination is also ideal for working with lower hygiene

Knee-bend tailored to the individual

When creating a bend at the knee using the profiling functions of care beds, the bend does not always align with the client’s knees. Using the Wedge cushion, it is possible to create a knee-break exactly where the client’s knees are, providing the best possible support for the client. Combine this position with a Pad High support cushion to elevate the client’s lower legs and relieve the legs, heels, and lower back.

Cleaning

LEJRELET Wedge can be wiped clean with water and disinfectant liquids or poured over with boiling water. We recommend that the pillow is 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 pillow, as this may reduce the effects of the cushion.

FAQ
What is the cover of the positioning and support cushions made of?

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. 

What kind of filling is used in the LEJRELET 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. 

Can I remove the cover from the positioning cushions?

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.
