WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Leg Abductor – Groin to Knee is a small hard foam wedge that can help when a patient is contracted with their legs bent.
It is small enough to fit between the upper legs between the groin and the knees. Two straps are sewn onto both sides of the Abductor to keep it in position and prevent it from slipping. After fitting, the long straps can be cut shorter where the cross stitching is.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
Suitable for people who need to have pressure care between their legs.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
The cover has soft cotton webbing with Hook & Loop Tape fasteners to secure the legs to the Abductor. For some patients who have very delicate skin, put some combine padding around the legs to protect them. Monitor the patient’s skin for pressure sores, particularly around the inside of the knees.
Some patients may get cramps if they sit for long periods and cannot move their legs. Refer to their care plan regarding ambulation. It may also be advisable to use a Pelican Chair Belt to remind the patient not to stand up when the abductor is in use.
