Collection: Sacrum, Ischium, Leg and Heel Support

Sacral and Ischial regions are most at risk of pressure ulcers in individuals that are bed or chair bound, with limited ability to move. Incorrect alignment in supine or sitting position especially when slumped down is the biggest contributor to the development of pressure sores.

Professionals recommend:

Semi-Fowler position to minimize slumping forward and shearing when sliding downward as well as relieving pressure in knees and heels.

Lateral Position with 15 or 30 degree tilt resulting in sacrum and ischium being completely void of surface pressure.

Using positioning cushions laterally to achieve a 30 degree tilt is recommended to relieve pressure in trochanteral and sacrum areas.

Sims’ position - sacrum and ischium being completely void of surface pressure. Sims’ position reduces the pressure on the hips and the sacrum, which are often responsible for decubitus ulcers.

We offer cushions to aid variety of positions.
