LASAL Embracer Pillow
Are you caring for someone at home who is largely restricted to bed rest or sitting in a chair?
While bed rest may sound like it would be healing, comfortable and restful - for example after an illness or operation - for prolonged periods it can be quite hard on the body, and lead to other health problems. It is important to encourage as much mobility as possible if the person you are caring for is able to move or change positions, independently or with assistance. Sitting up, either in bed, in a wheelchair or in a chair, can assist people to feel more a part of the home environment, and sitting upright assists with lung function and reduces pressure on the spine – provided the person is well-positioned.
Comfort and good positioning are sometimes difficult to attain. The right aides are important, and can assist carers to optimize comfort and safety at home.
Sitting comfort and support
Our LASAL Embracer Pillow is a specialist positioning pillow classified as a medical device. It is made in Denmark, and is certified by Australia’s Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) and European Conformity (CE). It has a strong inner case, and the outer covering of the pillow is 100% OEKO-TEX certified cotton. It is completely washable.
The LASAL Embracer provides comfort, support and stabilization for a person using a wheelchair, a chair, or sitting or reclining in bed. It is equipped with a belt, which makes it possible to fasten the Embracer to the back of a chair or wheelchair in order to prevent the cushion from sliding down every time the person moves.
Due to its specially engineered design, the Embracer supports the upper back, shoulders, arms and hands, thus reducing discomfort and enabling the user to relax both arms from the neck and shoulders to the fingertips without the arms falling to the side. This full support of the arms reduces drag on the shoulders, and thus the neck and the back, whilst leaving the arms and hands free for activities within the scope of the user’s abilities. It is ideal for users who have a tendency to slip down, or to lean to their weaker side, for example, after a stroke.
