DLF's summary

Support system used for positioning a child or small adult in bed. Designed to be used as part of a 24-hour posture management programme and should only be used following an assessment by an occupational therapist or physiotherapist. Undersheet is covered in Velcro strips, and brackets can be positioned on this as required to provide trunk support. Soft knee supports also attach to the Velcro and are designed to maintain the hips in an abducted and flexed position and the knees in a slightly flexed position. The Overmantle is placed over these structures and conforms to the contours defined by the brackets. The user is positioned on the supports. Can be adjusted to position the user in side lying, supine or prone. Available for cots and single and double beds. Options include the Airmantle as an alternative to the Lowzone overmantle. The Airmantle is comprised of an open weave knitted nylon allowing air to circulate freely and maintaining the users core temperature.

Manufacturer's product description

Symmetrisleep, the UK's favourite night time positioning system, helps children & adults to lie straight - improving health & function during the day.

Developed over 18 years ago, Symmetrisleep has been proven to provide comfortable support to those with even the most complex conditions. The system, which can be used day or night, is so adaptable it can be used in all lying positions including supine, prone, side lying and semi-side lying (it even works in some seated positions) - helping to provide the client with a good night's sleep.

Evidence from long-term studies and trials demonstrate the effectiveness of the system in improving some conditions and alleviating discomfort.These are all available to download from our dedicated website
We continue to improve and develop the system after consultation and feedback from therapists, healthcare professionals and the families of those using the system.

Significant investment in new technologies means we can also offer variations which address temperature regulation and thermal comfort - our new Coolover TR3 fabric actively helps regulate temperature. It comes as standard on many components and spare Coolover covers are available too!

We've even made our system quieter by introducing new velcro sheets which minimise the chance of waking the client whilst adjustments are made.

And all our experienced Postural Care Advisors have completed accredited and endorsed training so the service delivered once the system is in place is second to none.
