2 Resue Cushion

I am using the 2 rescue cushions on my dad and he says he is comfortable

Bedsore cushion

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!

Awesome Product

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.

Nancy Johnson (Alexandria, VA, US)
Soft and supportive

Bought 2 for my husband post-surgery. The pillows have proved to be amazingful comfortable in providing supplemental yet gentle support for his back when seated on upholstered living room arm chairs or couch. Wonderfully unique and suitable for even this somewhat formal setting.

The best support for preventing and healing bedsore issues

Best Products & Customer Service I’ve Ever Experienced!

The pillow is amazing so I contacted the company about purchasing a second one. They took the time to explain how to use the product and offered me suggestions and techniques. This is a great company with a wealth of knowledge on caring for bed bound patients. Highly recommend their products!

Amazing! Fantastic quality.

Fastest shipping I've ever seen (same day delivery!). Still perplexed how they managed that! Bedsore pillow a must for anyone dealing with sores. I credit healing to regular repositioning and use of this incredible jewell bedsore pillow. Thank you Jewell!

Bedsore Rescue® All Purpose Bolster Pillow
Martha Bonner (Los Angeles, CA, US)
Essential Tool for Recovery

My husband's stage 3 bedsore was not getting better, and positioning using wedges and pillows were uncomfortable. After 3 weeks, we started using bedsore rescue and bolster pillow and three weeks later, his bedsore is healed. He was comfortable. This was an essential tool for my husband's recovery. Very high quality product.

Bedsore Rescue® Positioning Wedge Cushion for Medical – with Non-Skid bottom

Bedsore Rescue Positioning Wedge Cushion

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!

Rehab review

The rehab center where husband is did not care for the cushion and told me to take home

Hello Darlene,
Sorry to hear the Rehab facility refused to use the cushion for your husband. I am curious to hear what criteria they base their decision? What they are using in leu of this cushion to prevent prevent pressure injury on your husband and do they have results to demonstrate what they are doing is more effective than using this cushion? You and your husband deserve a through explanation.

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!

Super tool

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

Amazing pillow !

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.

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.

Finally a solution

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!

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

It worked perfectly

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.
