Advanced Pressure Relief Cushions
Designed by a nurse who was tired of fooling around with simple pillows and bulky wedges that just don’t work, The Bedsore Rescue Positioning Wedge Cushions are uniquely designed to provide ergonomically correct and comfortable support for a sustained period of time without touching the sore spots. Made to meet all patient safety and bedbound positioning standards for acute and long-term care facilities.
The Science Behind The Design
If you or a loved one is suffering from pressure ulcers (bedsores), you are not alone! Over 2.5 million people will develop bedsores every year. No one had a good answer for how to achieve effective pressure reduction in the 30-degree, side-turned position until now.
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.
Breathable, Anti-Microbial Fabric
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.
Polyurethane coating allows vapor exchange for breathability without sticking to the skin. Moisture-resistant and antibacterial treated to prevent colonization. Wipe soiling clean with disinfectant wipes. Contains no latex, no zippers, and no metals.
Sustainability, waste reduction, and huge cost savings that can be realized by moving away from disposables may not be important to your facility now, but they will be eventually!

This wedge cushion works great! It's really easy to slip under the back to position it. At first glance at the length I wondered if this cushion would need to be smaller under a smaller body, but the shoulders and hip comfortably lay on the cushion. In fact, there is much more comfort when laying on the cushion than when there is no cushion at all!
The rehab center where husband is did not care for the cushion and told me to take home
After seeing that nothing worked for my dad's bedsore turned into a serious ulcer, I discovered this product. I thought other triangular wedges would do the job, but with his serious ulcer, it's obvious the regular wedges are not working. Recently I purchased 2 of the Non-Skid bottom versions of the Bedsore Rescue. What sets it apart is that with the non-skid bottom it will be harder for the wedges to get out of position. The lesser tilt degree should be more comfortable for my dad. This is also the only product that I find if needed can be left one on each side, thus won't require repositioning the patient as often. The other hidden Gem is the well-thought-out color booklet that came with the product. There are so many tips inside on how to prevent and stop bedsores, information that I wished I had known earlier. In the booklet, it mentioned why some absorbing pads and diapers should not be used and if needed you can call their support number with any questions. Since my dad was on diapers and we used the plastic-backed absorbing pads I called the phone number to find out a little more about why these products should not be used. To my surprise, the founder Gwen Jewell pick up the phone. I found out that she is a certified wound care specialist and definitely had lots of experience and extensive knowledge on the subject. She was very patient and caring, spent a good 30 minutes on the phone with me, even on a Saturday, and provided so much valuable information. You often hear stories of founders that really care about their products and customers. Today I can’t believe that I have personally experienced it for myself. Gwen on behalf of my dad Joe, and my family, I thank you once again for your wonderful product and the passion you put behind helping those with this serious issue. What you are doing with this product reminds me of a famous quote from Einstein, “The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil, but because of those who look on and do nothing”. Thank you for sharing your knowledge on the subject of bedsores and thank you for doing something in helping those in need.
I'm the Director of Staff Development at a skilled nursing facility as well as the project manager for our current state grant on prevention of pressure injuries. I have hosted numerous presentations regarding the grant and like to provide hands on training. After emphasizing the importance of repositioning residents who spend extended periods of time in bed, it's a sweet surprise that I was referred to Bedsore Rescue! Staff complained about needing 5 pillows to properly side position, and of course, we don't have that many pillows in our facility. Staff love the concept of the Bedsore Rescue wedge and residents mention that they are comfortable, while keeping the pressure off the low back and coccyx areas. I initially bought 4 but just received my second order of 4 more. As our grant progresses, I will be purchasing several more. I highly recommend these wedges!
Bedsore Rescue Positioning Wedge Cushion for Home - All Derma Fabric Casing
This is a super tool for any person. Many many uses. Great to prop my bedridden husband on his side. Much more comfortable for him than any other and extremely easy for me to use. I would highly recommend it
This Bedsore Rescue All-Purpose Hypoallergenic Contoured Pillow ?is? surprisingly soft and comfortable?. ?And the fact that you can wipe it clean if necessary is also a plus.? Because I like to be able to clean my pillows regularly.Because I suffer from acid reflux. ? I? usually? sleep? sitting up? with a mountain of pillows? . And to be honest it was causing me some pain in my spine and neck. I wasn't sure how or if this pillow would work for me. After the first few nights of using this pillow. I noticed an actual difference. I hadn't dealt with acid reflux in days. And my spine and neck weren't hurting me. Until I started using this Bedsore Rescue Contoured Pillow? I struggled to find a way to sleep comfortably. This pillow changed my life. The quality is excellent. It's sturdy and durable, I highly recommend it.
We used the wedge on one of our clients with a wound vac for his heel. Over the course of 48 hours, his wound improved tremendously. The staff is really seeing the benefits from the wedge so far.
I have been a caretaker most of my life. First my father in law and then my mother and father. The last couple of years for my mother were challenging. If it were not for Jewell Nursing Solutions it would have been even more painful for mom. My mother developed pressure ulcers on her lowerback after a few months of becoming bedridden. With the help of the Bedsore Rescue Turning Wedge and the info from the website on turning procedures we were able to get them to heal. Thank you so much Jewell Nursing Solutions!
When we trialed these at our facility the nurses loved them. They are light weight and easily used for a variety of patients. We highly recommend them
We ordered this as a result of my wife having a stage three bedsore. It worked perfectly. You could use a two pillow approach but would have to constantly adjust the pillows. The wedge was stable and very comfortable. The material dried up quickly when you got it wet. I use it in themornings as a table for her when she is still in bed having her coffee. Great device. I will be buying another one for when we go away.
Really good results with our client. I ended up using on a client with a stage 2 pressure ulcer that was developed over 48 hrs in hospital, post procedure. The caregiver was really able to get him off his sacrum and within 48 hrs the wound has shown great improvement and is almost completely healed.Client was able to tolerate the position really well and he is usually very difficult to keep off his back. Really glad that we have found your product.
Highly recommend for offloading! We use two, one on each side at the same time without signs of pressure wounds. They are a godsend!
I purchased this item to help my mother's recovery from a sacral wound that arose after her alternating air mattress malfunctioned and over inflated. It's crazy how quick bedsores can develop. Luckily, I came across this wedge after pillows didn't seem to be working and just making mom uncomfortable. The wedge arrived along with a very helpful guide on care and prevention of bedsores. There was also a phone number to call for additional questions. My brother called and left a message and received a return call the same day from Gwen Jewell herself. She was very friendly and offered her knowledge and advice. My brother communicated with her another time via text. It was reassuring to us that we were doing everything necessary to help mom's recovery. While the price of the wedge may seem like alot I feel that the support and advice from Gwen made it well worth it.
Im very glad I went with The Backbone, Dad says it is comfortable and his pressure sore is healing. An alternate wedge provided by hospice is quite large and boxy, its too big for the bed and not getting very much use.
