To protect the hips and pelvis whilst in side lying position
The Side Lying Leg Support is designed to protect the hips and pelvis when a person is lying on their side. The leg channel creates a perfect place for the top leg to lie and the bottom leg wraps gently around the outside. When combined with lots of support along the person’s back, a lovely, supportive, side lying position can be achieved. This is perfect for individuals who need to lie on their side for safety reasons.
The Side Lying Leg Support can be used with individuals of all ages during immobilisation after surgery, to therapeutically align the legs and avoid contractures.
It has a cotton mix terry towelling cover and is filled with a specialised fibre that wicks moisture away from the body, therefore it may be placed next to the skin.
Some of the benefits of using the Side Lying Leg Support may be:
- Reduced pain
- Improved comfort
- Improved sleep
- Improved balance
- Improved cardiac function
- Improved respiratory function
- Improved heat exchange
- Improved pressure care
- Improved digestion
- Decreased tone
The Side Lying Leg Support comes in 3 different sizes.
