NIGHT POSITIONING

 

Night Positioning – Leg Elevation

Baltic

Designed to give both legs support with a gradual elevation when nursing a patient on long term bed rest. This unit encourages venous return for patients with poor circulation and relieves pressure areas on the heels. Ideal for uses in cases of foot drop and fluid retention.  This unit is also showing its suitability and benefit when used for prone positioning of a young child.

Kara

The ascending gradient of this unit elevates the lower limb to prevent fluid retention e.g. long term bed ridden patients, leg in plaster cast etc. and afterwards to reduce swelling subsequent to injury or traction.  Patients with lymphoedema also benefit as the leg is completely supported from behind the knee which prevents hyper-extension of the knee joint.
