A soft mattress topper for added comfort and temperature regulation
The Temperate Topper is a soft mattress topper which is used underneath the fitted bed sheet, and on top of the layers of Stabilising Mesh. The topper provides a padded layer over the mesh, and without this in place, there is only the sheet between the person’s body and the mesh.
It is filled with a state of the art non-woven fibre material which is machine washable to 90°. Natural fibres wick moisture away which prevents maceration of the skin and allows air to circulate around the individual, helping to maintain a dry, temperate environment for them to rest in.
The Temperate Topper aids in thermoregulation, being non-dynamic. This means that the non-woven fibre does not retain heat as foam is known to do, thereby neither cooling nor warming the individual. This is an essential safety feature for those who find it difficult to control their own body temperature, so as not to interfere with their unique temperature regulatory system.
The topper provides a soft layer under the person’s body where the bulk of their weight lies. Comfort of the patient is necessary as postural care must be gentle and humane. If the patient is not comfortable, then muscle tone may increase, and the sleep system is less likely to get used.
The Temperate Topper is available in both single and cot sizes. The single size can also be used on larger beds.
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.
