Cobi Positioning Cushions
Cobi Positioning Cushions are universal with each one having multiple functions, which means many applications and great flexibility. Their stability makes them easy to use and ensures a stable and convenient positioning. Cobi Rehab positioning cushions are designed in collaboration with leading Danish specialists within dementia, neurology and bariatrics..
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 more “heavy” combined to other cushions. This means that they stay in place once positioned and provide both stability and support.
In addition to reducing pressure and increasing pressure distribution, the cushions are particularly suitable for reducing spasticity, as well as providing tactile stimulus. This is very relevant in cases of i.e. dementia. Being positioned and surrounded by cushions provides a sense of being 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 beads of expanded polystyrene, 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 a stretchable PU material, anti-bacterially sealed. This 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
The cushions are suitable for bariatric users, neurologically injured patients, pain patients and for palliative care. Common to these patient groups is the 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 the best positioning
Stability and filling of cavities are very important when it comes to ensuring optimal positioning. Stability and filling of cavities leads to the distribution of the pressure over an area as wide as possible. In this way, the user remains in the desired, natural position, without any resistance in the joints, nerve and/or muscle tissue.
Positioning with focus on wound care
The material of which Cobi Positioning cushions are made, makes it possible to expose a smaller area e.g. around heels which provide pressure relief around a smaller but specific area.
Prior to positioning, a positioning analysis of malalignment, pain, sleep, tissue, tone level, contracture, respiration and sense integration must be carried out.
