HandiWedge Positioning Wedge
The HandiWedge is a simple and effective device that is designed to the benefit of the client and their carer when finding a suitable position in bed, and can also be used as a support for limbs when carrying out wound dressing etc.
Turning a person in bed is an important activity and a significant part of the handling requirements when giving care following a risk assessment.
The need to hold and maintain a person in a comfortable and safe position, on their side for example after turning for hygiene purposes, can in turn be a risky, arduous & strenuous task for the carer. This can affect their ability to manage their posture and after prolonged periods of time can lead to serious risk of injury.
The HandiWedge is versatile and can be positioned at 3 different angles – 50, 60 & 70 degree – to allow optimum positioning and flexibility.
