The BackBone Turning Wedge


The BackBone™ Turning Wedge is the only wedge that features bilaterally symmetrical angles and contoured edges for a form fitting support with minimal slipping. Provides gentle, ergonomically comfortable offloading without direct contact to the sacral/coccyx area or spinal column. The antimicrobial, moisture-proof cover allows gas exchange for better microclimate control. Easily wiped clean for multi-patient use. Simple to place, versatile and long lasting. Effective support even during head of bed elevation. The re-useable more eco-friendly BackBone costs pennies per patient to use.
