When should I buy a positioning pillow?
The possible uses of positioning pillows are manifold. They are particularly suitable for positioning limbs, for relaxing tissue structures such as muscles, fasciae, tendons, ligaments and joint capsules of the lower extremity and the back. Furthermore, positioning cushions are also valuable aids in corrective gymnastics and general rehabilitation. With the help of positioning cushions, affected body parts can be placed higher and are thus more easily accessible for the therapist. Furthermore, the use of suitable support cushions can relieve and stabilise painful parts of the patient's body. They can also prevent too much pressure from being exerted on a part of the skin and tissue and consequently the development of a decubitus (pressure ulcer). Positioning pillows are therefore ideal for positioning limbs and preventing pain and pressure points caused by positioning. They are available in different sizes, shapes (rolls, cubes) and hardnesses and are indispensable in rehabilitation and therapy. Many forms of treatment are only effective and efficient through the use of positioning aids.
