AliMed Bariatric Positioners

AliMed has added to its products a line of bed positioning devices engineered to withstand the compressive weight of bariatric patients and help prevent pressure ulcers. The positioners, made from a closed-cell foam that resists compression better than standard foam, include triangular body positioning wedges in 14-in and 28-in lengths, a knee pillow for under-knee support; and an elevating-leg bed wedge that supports the lower limbs and feet. All positioners come with a wipeable soft vinyl cover and are rated for use by individuals who weigh up to 700 pounds (317 kg).
