Patient lying positioning and comfort

CareWave offers a large selection of specialized positioning cushions. The unique design of the polystyrene micro-beads along with the stretchable Polyurethane covers allow for specific positioning for pressure relief, support and comfort. These cushions have an anti-microbial treatment and are easy to clean and disinfect.

The CareWave body positioning system is very versatile. Offering support in sizes ranging from infants to adults, the unique micro-bead filling allows a care person to adjust the support and comfort level around the user’s body and limbs to protect from skin lesions and assist with positioning the individual when sleeping at night etc.

When positioning the individual, these ultra-flexible positioning cushions offer ‘dynamic’ support rather than rigid support which means the person can still manage shifting their position during their night’s sleep so they can find that effective but elusive lying position, whether supine (face up), prone (face down), or side lying. These cushions can be used on beds, on the floor, in wheelchairs and day chairs or anywhere.

The filling of CareWave cushions is composed of high quality round polystyrene micro particles. As  thin  as  sand, the extreme small form-factor of the micro-beads used in our cushions allow rapid and easy postures, maintaining comfortably the patient on body parts in contact with the cushion while relieving  pressure on areas with risk of bedsores. Thanks to the combination of these micro-beads together with our polyurethane bi-elastic cover, our cushions:

  • are light and easy to use
  • adapt to all morphologies
  • give support and hold comfortably the patient
  • help reduce pressure

The  expanded  polystyrene  (that  one  used for  the  filling  of  our  cushions) is widely  used  in  disposable  food  containers  with  very  strict  requirements  as it is in direct contact with food with the risk be ingested. Several epidemiological studies have been made, with rather important styrene exposure levels and absence of exposure to other chemicals. These studies do not show any association between cancer and styrene. Source: FT2 – INRS
