WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Vented Overlay Pad is a breathable, washable foam overlay used on a bed. Inside the Pad is a special foam sheet that has ventilation holes to allow air to flow through. This helps regulate body temperature – some people call this ‘Thermoneutral’. The fabric cover is designed to wick moisture away from the body. This type of material is sometimes used in sportswear.
As part of the Pelican Sleep System, the Vented Overlay Pad is compatible with positioning items such as the Sleep System Positioning Sheet, Body Brackets, and Wedges. It is big enough to allow the hip and shoulders to be on the Pad, and to reach across the bed to allow Wedges or Body Brackets to be placed under it.
Also available: Vented Overlay Pad – Small – TR. This smaller (23.6″ x 7.8″) version is for use on chairs, car seats, etc., and has a Thermoregulating Material cover.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Vented Overlay Pad is suitable for use either on it’s own, or in addition to postural sleep supports.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Always consult your Therapist before using. Lay the Vented Overlay Pad across the bed where the Patient’s hips and shoulders will be lying on it.
If using the Overlay Pad with the Sleep System Positioning Sheet and Body Brackets or Wedges, slightly tilt the Patient to apply the Brackets/Wedges to one side of them, then tilt their other side to place the Brackets/Wedges on the opposite side.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
