This small positioning cushion is developed particularly developed to be used for micro-positioning purposes but can also be used as a lumbar support cushion, an abduction wedge, and much more.
LEJRELET Oval is one of the smallest positioning pillows on the market, which makes it ideal for providing that small, extra support that you often need when using larger positioning cushions. For instance, this might be as a lumbar support cushion, a knee abduction cushion or to support a paretic hand.
This support pillow is filled with pressure-relieving foam granulate, which makes it possible to mould the cushion, for instance, to create a doughnut shape. This is particularly useful to relieve pressure on the ears, elbows, or hands.
The concept of micro-positioning is about creating small positioning changes to prevent pressure ulcers or to relieve existing pressure ulcers. Using this method, a small positioning cushion is in turn placed at different places on the client’s body, e.g. firstly it is tucked under the client’s right shoulder, then under the right hip, then under the left shoulder and lastly under the left hip. This method mimics the small micro positionings we normally make during our sleep, which people with limited mobility are prevented from doing on their own.
These small changes in position is a great alternative to fully turning the client on their side and is less disturbing during the night. The method is particularly useful for patients in intensive care units with a lot of pain and is also a good tool in pressure ulcer prevention efforts.
Use as a lumbar support cushion
This small positioning cushion can also be used as lumbar support. For instance, LEJRELET Oval can be used as a lumbar support cushion for clients who have respiratory difficulties. In this case, the cushion can be placed at the lower back to open the diaphragm and thereby the airways, when the client is sitting in bed with a bend at the knees. Watch how in this video. The lumbar support cushion can also be used to simply relieve strain on the lower back.

LEJRELET Oval can be wiped clean with water and disinfectant liquids or poured over with boiling water. We recommend that the pillow is not machine washed, as water can seep through the seams, after which the foam takes a long time to dry. The cover cannot be removed, and we recommend that no other cover be placed on the outside of the pillow, as this may reduce the effects of the cushion.
The cover of the cushions is made of a material called Polyurethane coated polyester, which is a light polyester material that has a fire-retardant polyurethane coating on both sides. Furthermore, the cover is treated with a water-repellent agent.
The LEJRELET Tube 125, Tube 250, Pad Low and Oval are all made of 100 % viscoelastic foam. The foam is pressure relieving, provides a large support surface and high comfort for the client, as the foam forms in the desired position.
LEJRELET Wedge and Pad High are both made with a core of polyurethane foam covered with visco-elastic foam. This combination makes the cushions firm and supportive as well as provides an effective pressure relieving quality.
