Kit for Elderly Care
Our positioning kit for Elderly Care is fantastic at supporting older people who are spending a lot of time in bed. Particularly helpful for those people with a diagnosis of dementia, the kit envelopes an individual, giving them fantastic proprioceptive feedback and comfort. By supporting the person with a variety of cushions we can allow their body to relax whilst also preventing complex contractures from developing. Additionally, we can maximise their pressure care by distributing their body over a larger, well supported surface area. The comfort and quality of life improvements provided by this positioning kit can be seen in this piece of work conducted by Salford University.
