If a person cannot easily move without help and stays in bed for long periods of time, positioning cushions, pillows and wedges can be used to provide comfortable position changes. Many positioning and adaptive cushions are designed to hold the body in a particular way to relief and prevent pressure ulcers. However, to effectively prevent pressure ulcers/injuries, persons with no mobility need to have their position changed at least every 4 hours, in addition to using these devices.

Positioning cushion/ pillow/ wedge can be purchased from medical supply stores. Please refer to table "Other Stores" below for pricing and suggestions on where to purchase this product "out-of-pocket" (without insurance). If there are no vendors listed and you would like to have information on suppliers, please email info@woundreference.com.
