These products are for children who require postural and positioning support whilst lying in bed.
This includes a range of wedges, rolls and positioning systems.
Some children, particularly those with altered muscle tone, may need help with positioning 24 hours a day (known as 24 hour postural management) to improve comfort and function and to prevent muscle shortening and joint contractures. This may be achieved in side-lying, prone-lying (on front) or supine-lying (on back). Note that research into cot death has shown that it is not advisable to lay young babies on their front (prone) to sleep.
This specialised equipment should only be used after your child has had a thorough assessment with an appropriately qualified occupational therapist or physiotherapist. This site is not a substitute for individual assessment.View references and sources of further information ›
