Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion with Pommel
The Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion with Pommel is a pressure sore cushion constructed from viscoelastic memory foam with a detachable pommel for stabilisation and the prevention of forward slipping.
This pressure sore cushion is anatomically shaped in order to improve positioning, stability and comfort as well as increasing the contact area of the cushion to spread the contact pressure and reduce the risk of pressure sores developing. The memory foam also facilitates blood circulation, further reducing the risk of pressure sore development.
Features and Benefits of the Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion with Pommel
The Systam Viscoflex Memory Foam Pressure Relief Cushion with Pommel assists in the prevention of falls and is particularly recommended for patients prone to slipping forward, offering a true alternative to seat restraints.
It's supplied complete with a highly breathable cover that is impenetrable to liquids. The breathable cover reduces maceration by easing skin perspiration.
The surface of this pressure sore cushion contains vents to improve air circulation and further reduce maceration, as well as to accommodate movement of the body, reducing surface friction.
It's incredibly lightweight - ideal for travel or transportation. The useful integrated handle on the cushion cover makes travelling with the cushion easy.
There is a rear chair attachment strap for reassurance where patients are prone to slipping forward or falling from the chair or wheelchair.
An anti slip base avoids any sliding of the cushion, encouraging stable and reliable support.
The pommel is an innovative stabilising tool that is adjustable in position and completely separate from the cushion itself. Unlike other systems, this pommel has its own cover so there is no need to insert the pommel inside the cushion cover to protect it from urine or spillage.
This fully detachable system simplifies the setting and adjustment of the pommel and reduces the time needed to make adjustments for the patient's requirements. It also simplifies transfer from the chair by allowing immediate removal.
The anatomically shaped pommel accommodates the morphological curve of the thighs and the natural opening angle of the lower limbs (as the distal part is slimmer than the proximal part).
The pommel position is highly adjustable and can be detached within seconds using the Velcro quick release, making it ideal for nursing staff ease of use. The position of the pommel can be precisely adjusted by up to 10cm.
