About Bedsore Rescue Cushions and Pillows
First, about the most important support device you need for preventing pressure injuries on the sacrum/tailbone area: 30-Degree lateral side position support. The Bedsore Rescue Backbone positioning wedge cushion was designed by a nurse who was tired of fooling around with simple pillows and bulky wedges that just don’t work. This turning wedge is uniquely designed to provide ergonomically correct and comfortable support for a sustained period of time. Finally, support that provides long lasting pressure relief, comfort and can avoid touching the sore spots. Made to meet all patient safety and bedbound positioning standards for acute care, long-term care and of course for home and hospice care.
How and Why It Works Better
Almost half of all pressure injuries occur on the lower back/trunk area, where the sacrum and coccyx (aka the tailbone) take the worst hit. When you are worried about decubitus ulcers (aka pressure injuries) on the backside, the most important preventative intervention is to get the pressure off and keep the pressure off this area.
The magic behind the Bedsore Rescue Positioning Cushion is in the shape. Form follows function. The contouring and angles are carefully crafted to provide everything a person needs to achieve comfortable and stable support without pressure.
Optimal 30° Positioning
The secret to supporting an accurate 30-degree lift WITH stability, comfort, and pressure reduction is in our patented bilateral angle design. This design makes it possible to set the wedge fully underneath the person’s back and hips to provide the most gentle, even support. Lifts are just far enough to relieve pressure from the sacrum/coccyx but not too far to cause pressure on the opposite shoulder or hip. This position is perfect for promoting circulation, airflow, and healing.
The only positioning wedge cushion with a unique curved design. This patented crescent shape is why The Bedsore Rescue Positioning cushion can lift both the back and hips simultaneously while at the same time circumventing the sacrum/coccyx and spine. Making it the only cushion that can provide even comfortable support across the entire torso while floating all the bony prominences of the spine.

Jewell Nursing is taking 30-degree lateral support technology to its highest standard by covering the cushion with advanced medical fabric, making The Bedsore Rescue Positioning Cushion the only long-term re-usable support cushion that meets acute care patient safety and quality standards.

I am now more confident with managing the care of my bedridden loved one with the Jewell positioning wedge & bolster pillow! The products work, making caregiving easier & my loved one healthier & more comfortable. I’m tossing all the “old stupid pillows now!” Thank you for your care to develop this product & for all your work to get it to people in need! Ginny
Very pleased with this well designed cushion to help keep pressure off of the heels. The pillow is great quality, well designed. The fabric on the pillow is gentle on the skin andeasy to wipe clean.
My mom has not had bedsores since we've been using this wedge. We are so happy with the results!!
Was looking for something other then the disposable wedges after mom first operation wound debridement and the requiring a second debridement, this cushion works wonders and keeps mom comfortable
We have eliminated our entire old crappy collection of pillows, wedges, and shaped foam pads and pillow cases that we used to stuff under my husband who is a quadriplegic. I am his caregiver and when I saw that this product was created by a wound care nurse, I became very interested. The shape and contour of the 30 degree angled Cushion provides just the right amount of offloading and can be used in many different areas of the body depending on where you have a problem. I have purchased 2 Contour Wedges and 3 of the Pillows.... and I am so happy I did. This has made my life easier since I can use the products and they stay in place, The material can be cleaned easily and there are no sharp edges or zippers. They are cool, breathable and I don't have to do laundry any longer.... Best investment in a product that I have made.
Waited to write a review in order to give the cushions, covers and pillow a hands on review. I will start with the covers, I like the them because they stop the cushions from slipping. The fact that they are warm when I place the cushions on warm skin is a plus. The pillow isn’t just a pillow, it has many uses. The positioning wedge, I purchased two because my husband prefers to position on his back, is a keeper. Our healthcare nurse was here today and noted some tissue forming around the sore on his buttocks. The only difference in his care has been the positioning wedge. Your booklet is a great guide. Your customer service is excellent! In my book, I would give you ten stars. Thank you for all the help.
It works great. So much better than using pillows.
I was very concerned about my brothers skin and needed to make sure he didn’t began to break down and the pillow was the solution
I love the product unfortunately mom passed away three days later after I received it.
Was such a blessing to talk with the founder I was amazed the time she spent talking to me.
She has such a loving and caring heart.
Will tell all my friends about this product .
I use this under my legs with the open side facing towards my head. I’m bedridden and use this for 10-12 hours a day. Very comfortable and glad it stays put!
Pillow was for my grandma and doctor approved. It’s great for her bed sores there healing well with this pillow.
I am using the 2 rescue cushions on my dad and he says he is comfortable
We are using this cushion on my terminally I’ll husband with a bedsore. It makes the positioning so Much easier and comfortable for him. Thank you so much!
I love Bedsore Rescue® Positioning Wedge Cushion for Medical – with Non-Skid bottom. I got it for my husband who is bedridden and gets pressure sores. This keeps him from laying directly on his sores and helps them to heal more quickly. It is easy to use and he says it is comfortable and it beats using pillows under him.
