A lateral wedge available through Rehabmart.com aims to eliminate pressure and reduce the incidence of bedsores. The Soft Economy Positioning Wedge features a dry surface engineered to prevent skin breakdown and to maintain shape and position for uniform elevation. The company notes that the product will not slip, allowing the caregiver to turn the individual easily.
The washable Soft Economy Positioning Wedge is filled with polystyrene beads and is designed to not retain heat or compress like conventional pillows. The company adds that the product is ideal for use with an alternating pressure mattress and is available in four sizes and measurements. These sizes include small (cervical or pediatric), medium (persons greater than 180 pounds), large (persons greater than 180 pounds), and x-long (for taller persons).
