Systam 30 Degree Half Positioning Wedge

For patients with low levels of mobility who spend long stretches of time lying down, the use of positioning aids is important to direct pressure to low risk areas. The Systam 30 Degree Half Positioning Wedge is made from memory foam with a high resilience insert, enabling the user to be supported in a 30 degree position. This position enhances comfort while redirecting sacral pressure to areas at lower risk of pressure sore development.

This wedge is available in two versions, with a choice between left and right-sided varieties. Please select your desired option using the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

Sacral Support and Pelvic Relief

This positioning wedge contributes to the relief of pressure on a number of high risk zones, including the sacrum, pelvis and knees. By directing pressure to low risk zones and preventing knee contact, the risk of pressure sore development is greatly lowered and comfort is boosted. The wedge also avoids rotation of the vertebral column, contributing to better posture and overall patient well-being.

Moulded Viscoelastic Foam with Memory Effect

The advanced, supportive foam used in this wedge provides precise moulding of the support to the user and an increase in the body surface in contact with the mattress, providing several key benefits:

  • Provides increased pressure distribution
  • Reduction of transcutaneous pressures on high risk areas
  • Facilitated blood circulation in high risk areas
  • Improved comfort and stability of the patient

The skin effect obtained through the moulding process provides protection of the foam against external aggressions like tearing and crumbling. Its very high density foam insert prevents deformation and sagging effects.
