Cobi Positioning Cushions make up a series of positioning cushions providing a multitude of flexible solutions. Each cushion may be used for solving different positioning issues, depending on the individual’s specific needs. The cushions are produced based on general positioning principles and in cooperation with special units within neurologically injured patients and demented patients. The focus has been on the quality of the material being able to retain its shape to provide stability as well as a large support surface and pressure distribution.
Cobi Positioning Cushions are universal with each one having multiple functions, which means that they have many applications and great flexibility. Their stability makes them easy to use and ensures a stable and convenient positioning.
Heavy weight and anatomical design
In the design of Cobi Positioning Cushions, we have focused on being able to position the cushions tightly and close to the user’s body. The cushions are heavy which means that they stay in place once positioned and support and provide stability to the position in which the user has been placed.
In addition to being able to relieve pressure and increase pressure distribution, the cushions are particularly suitable for reducing spasticity, as well as providing tactile stimulus, which is very relevant in cases of i.a. dementia. The user experiences that his or her body is cocooned, which often has a calming effect and increases comfort.
Cobi Positioning Cushions are made of materials that create stable positioning and create as much pressure distribution as possible. The composition of the material provides both tactile and proprioceptive input.
The fabrics of the cushions are waterproof but at the same time breathable. The substance is anti-bacterially treated, without the use of nano materials. In addition, the cushions are airtight and filled with small Krøyer balls, granules and density, which ensures that the position is kept and the cushions do not change shape.
There are two types of covers, a hygiene cover and an extra soft jersey cover. The hygiene cover is made of an incredibly stretchable PU material, anti-bacterially sealed, which makes it extra resistant and impervious to bacteria, and therefore very hygienic in use. The cover is also breathable, stretchable and fire retardant. The jersey cover, made of 100% organic cotton, is an extra soft fabric which is stretchable.
Useful for many patient groups, e.g. bariatric users
The cushions are particularly suitable for bariatric users, paresis, sclerosis patients, brain damage, neurological patients, pain patients and for palliative care, where few and even small movements may trigger pain. Common to these patient groups is the fact that the majority are at high risk of developing tissue damage and pressure ulcers.
Positioning of bariatric users
By using a variety of Cobi Positioning Cushions, it is possible to position bariatric users, so e.g. head, skin, heels, shoulders, back support, and respiration are improved, and the risk of pressure ulcers is diminished.
Cobi Rehab’s recommendations for best positioning
Stability and filling of cavities are very important in achieving an optimal positioning, so that pressure is distributed over as wide a range as possible. In this way, the user remains in the desired position and is positioned in his/her neutral position, where there is no resistance in the joint or nerve muscle tissue.
Positioning in connection with wound care
Cobi Positioning cushions are also useful in case of special needs in relation to exposing a smaller area in connection with wounds, because the material can be modulated. The concept of Cobi Positioning Cushions can also be applied as part of wound treatment or nervous stretch treatment. Prior to positioning, a positioning analysis of malalignment, pain, sleep, tissue, tone level, contracture, respiration and sense integration must be prepared.
