The Repose range offers a unique and simple solution to efficiently redistribute or release pressure (floating heels) and to contribute to the prevention and treatment of pressure ulcers.
A multifunctional wedge cushion for floating heels, prevention of occipital decubitus and installation in the prone position.
A Repose wedge is placed at the foot of a static, reactive or dynamic mattress, preferably under the bed sheet. The calves and achilles tendons of both legs are gently supported, while both heels hang completely free over the heel wedge.
The pressure on both heels is completely released in this case. The heel wedge also offers the more active patient the necessary freedom to regularly change the position of the feet. A Repose heel wedge can also be used as a pillow in sedated patients to provide the necessary protection occiputally or at the level of the ears.
The narrow version with 5 extra air cells is ideal for positioning patients in the prone position . The narrow heel wedge is placed under the lower legs while the back of both feet rests on the highest cell. A Repose Babytherm (see pediatric range) can be used to redistribute pressure on the face and thorax.
- Heel wedge (69 x 45 cm) + pump:
- This includes the heel wedge of 69x45cm and the corresponding pump.
- Heel wedge (69 x 45 cm) with PU belt + pump:
- The PU strap is used to fix the cushion around the bed
- Heel wedge (50 cm) for prone position + pump:
- This is a variant of the 69x45cm heel wedge specially designed for the prone position.
Repose is simple and durable
Repose consists of air-filled and interconnected membranes made of polyurethane film. The 50 µm thin polyurethane is extremely elastic: it can be stretched up to six times without tearing or losing its elasticity.
The combination of air and polyurethane film guarantees the best possible pressure redistribution through embedding (immersion) and enclosure (envelope). Repose is the perfect product to increase the contact area between the body and the bottom layer as much as possible.
The material is breathable and temperature neutral. This creates an optimal microclimate. The unique Repose pump ensures that every device is inflated with the correct pressure. The patented 'Smart Valve' technology guarantees an internal pressure of 12 mmHg in the Repose. This is the optimum value for pressure redistribution and clinical effectiveness through slump and enclosure. The pump also serves as a packaging for Repose.
