Designed by a nurse, The BackBone™ Non Skid is guaranteed to provide the best possible 30 degree turned support possible, or your money back!
How it works: The BackBone™ is the only 30 degree lateral turning wedge designed to conform and cradle with the natural curvatures of a person’s back without touching the sensitive sacral/coccyx area. The BackBone™ provides a gentle lift from the scapula and buttocks, while slightly curving away from the spine. Your person experiences evenly distributed support and lift across the entire torso and hips. The sacrum/coccyx is lifted off the mattress surface just enough to remove pressure.
Why The BackBone Non Skid works so much better: The magic of The BackBone™ Non Skid design is the patented crescent shape and more gradual angles that are even on both sides of the wedge (Bilateral Isoceles Triangle instead of a typical 30x60x90 degree triangle). These two features make it possible to get gentle lift and full support under your persons body for a more precise angle and better stability and comfort.
The BackBone™ Non Skid fits well under your person just right. Not too big, not too small, not too hard, not too soft. Supports an even, exact and stable position. No more hard bulky and hard side pushing, over turning and slipping like typical wedges do, or repeated re-stuffing pillows and replacing too soft pillows over and over again. Your person feels fully supported at an angle just enough to reduce pressure from the spine and sacrum/coccyx area without “over turning” or twisting. Provides gentle, ergonomically comfortable and stable offloading.
