Unlocking the secrets to 30 degree support.
The secret to the Backbone Turning Wedge ™ by Jewell Nursing Solutions is the unique, bilateral “no-slip” angle and “no pressure” contour design.Since the wedge is cut to the correct lift angle on two sides instead of just one, the BackBone is the only side positioning cushion available that can stay in place without slipping. The contouring shape conforms to the natural “curl” of a persons’ back while lifting at the hips and scapula to achieve a form fitting, ergonomically correct support. The Backbones’ “no-pressure” contour shape provides lift where you need it while avoiding all contact pressure to the sacrum and bony prominence’s of the spine. Comfortable. Stays in place. Removes pressure.
Everything a turning wedge should do. Add the antimicrobial, skin friendly, breathable stretchable and wipe clean cover and you

Gentle lift without contacting the bony prominence’s
The BackBone fits under the back just enough to lift off the sacrum, coccyx & spine, but not so far as to be on the trochanter. The wedge is carefully crafted to contour away from the sacrum while supporting the entire torso in an ergonomically correct & comfortable position. The BackBone provides steady, no-slip support and comfortable, no-pressure lift.
Conforms to support in semi-fowler elevation Uniquely sloped design and highly flexible construction make it possible for the BackBone to adapt to the natural curvature of the back during head of bed elevation. The BackBone stays in place to maintain turn and lift off the vulnerable pressure points you
are trying to protect.
Versatile to support in many other ways:
Use the BackBone between the legs. Put it under the lower legs to float the heels. Place it behind the head during mealtime. Even use it as a protective cushion against hard surfaces. The patent pending BackBone Turning Wedge ™ is as versatile as a pillow, and supports better than any other wedge in the market.
