WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The CVA Arm Support Cover is a curved arm cushion to hold an arm and hand.
A large inner polythene liner bag is provided. This has to be filled by the customer with polystyrene balls as used in bean bags. The amount of balls needed will vary according to the size of the Patient and size of the chair.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The main body of the cushion is placed on the arm of a chair and molded into shape to support the Patient’s arm and hand.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
To use the cushion, place the narrow neck behind the Patient’s back, and have the Patient lean back against it. This should hold the neck part in place. However, if needed, there is an elasticized loop sewn into the end of the neck that can be used to tie the neck to the back of the chair. If the neck is filled with balls, it can serve as lumbar support for the Patient.
In addition, there is another elasticized loop provided at the end of the body. A ribbon can be used to secure the loop either around the Patient’s wrist or to one of the chair arms. After the Patient has been in one position for a while, the nurse can adjust the position to improve circulation.
