Versatile positioning pillow
The Horseshoe Pillow from Simple Stuff Works is a lovely addition to any positioning system. It is made from a lovely soft fibre and covered in a soft yet durable polyester-mix material.
A few examples of positioning that can be achieved using the Horseshoe Pillow are:
- Raising the legs and placing the pillow under the legs
- Under the upper arm in side lying
- Behind the head or head and shoulders when lying on their back
- Behind the head or head and shoulders in side lying
- Between legs in side lying
- Under and around lower legs when used in conjunction with a supine stabiliser
- Under and around lower thighs
The Horseshoe Pillow has a cotton terry towelling cover and filled with a specialised fibre that wicks moisture away from the body, therefore may be placed next to the skin.
Some of the benefits of using the Horseshoe Pillow may be:
- Reduced pain
- Improved comfort
- Improved sleep
- Improved respiratory function
- Improved heat exchange
- Improved pressure care
It is available in two sizes.
The intended purpose of Simple Stuff Works is therapeutic positioning of the body in the lying posture, and is a gentle therapy used for those with movement difficulties. When used correctly it may help protect and restore an individual’s body shape. The system has no Velcro or screw action fixings, so silent changes of position can be made with little disruption to the person whilst in bed.
The Simple Stuff Works way provides high quality education and therapeutic positioning equipment with an aim to eradicate the preventable problems associated with body shape distortion.
Simple Stuff Works advisors and colleagues are all highly experienced, having written some of the leading research into Postural Care and its effects. Medifab educators have been upskilled by these individuals and are ambassadors to promote protection of body shape.
Therapeutic positioning requires a comprehensive understanding from everyone involved if it is to be implemented successfully. Medifab with Simple Stuff Works is equipped to offer a range of training to support families, healthcare professionals and indeed anyone with an interest in therapeutic positioning. Our courses are accredited and license delegates to join a worldwide community of Postural Care Leaders with access to all our training materials and support.
Simple Stuff Works take pride in the fact that their equipment is silent, hygienic and simple to use. Training programs are available in Australia and New Zealand and will allow you to implement this powerful form of therapy as safely and as humanely as possible.
