Positioning cushions in bed

Positioning cushions to lie comfortably, improve circulation and prevent decubitus ulcers - suitable for persons with extensive disabilities

Description
The user has various positioning cushions in bed at night:
- Psoas cushion when she lies on her back (Photo 1, 2)
- A long narrow wedge cushion (support cushion) to position her feet when she is on her back with the psoas cushion(photo 1, 2)
- Wedge cushion, under back when she lies on her side (photo 3)

Authors comments
High position with psoas cushion increases circulation when she lies on her back. The wedge cushion helps her maintain a stable position when she lies on her side.
