Description
Designed by a nurse, The Bedsore Rescue Cushion is guaranteed to support the best possible 30-degree turn possible, or your money back! The Bedsore Rescue Positioning Wedge is the only 30-degree lateral positioning cushion with low-profile, bilateral angles and a convex curvature with rounded ends. This patented unique design makes the Bedsore Rescue cushion the only turning wedge capable of providing full support under the back and hips while circumventing sacrum/coccyx and spine. Why is that so important? Because this shape supports:
  • Ergonomically correct musculoskeletal alignment without twisting
  • More accurate 30-degree angle support without pressuring opposite shoulder or hip
  • Cradle-like maximum comfort
  • Better pressure relief over all bony prominences
  • Better stability for long-term relief
Latex Free – Hypoallergenic - No zippers - No metal - No openings! Simple to place, versatile and long lasting. The Bedsore Rescue Cushion is available in 3 styles:
  • Home Version: Covered with all Derma Chemflex II moisture resistant and antibacterial medical fabric.
  • Non-Skid Version: Has the same Derma Chemflex II fabric on the top and sides but made with a roughened rubber fabric bottom to reduce slipping.
  • Welded Seams: The most advanced technology medical fabric available. Seams are welded closed to prevent moisture penetration even when submerged. Use for patients with severe skin frailty or sterile environments. Suitable for OR, burn units, necrotizing skin diseases, COVID isolation. Contact Jewell Nursing Solutions for more information and pricing.
Cleaning: All Bedsore Rescue Cushion are covered with moisture resistant and antibacterial treated fabric. Easy to clean and disinfect using any institutional wipe (including hydrogen peroxides, chlorine bleach, and alcohol based wipes) or rinsed under soap and water. Do not launder. Do not submerge in fluid. If accidentally submerged in copious body excrement for more than a few minutes, we recommend discarding the The Bedsore Rescue Cushion.

How it works

The Bedsore Rescue Cushion 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 Bedsore Rescue Cushion works so much better

The Bedsore Rescue Cushion 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.

Relief for patients and caregivers alike

No better evidence than the real life best practice results of unbiased and experienced caregivers and patients. We are proud that Bedsore Rescue Cushions positioning cushions have the highest satisfaction rate in the industry with 4+ stars and over 750 reviews on Amazon!

Very Innovative!

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!

His wound improved

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.

Highly recommend them

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

Life Saver!

Highly recommend for offloading! We use two, one on each side at the same time without signs of pressure wounds. They are a godsend!

Pressure sore is healing

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.
