The Simple Stuff Works Foot Supports are soft and comfortable, holding the feet in a neutral position for long periods of time and supporting the ankle.
They are made from the same fibre as the Temperate Toppers so they help to keep the feet feeling fresh whilst protecting them from falling forwards or rotating. The specialised fibre material wicks moisture away from the body and promotes better airflow around the foot.
They relieve pressure from off the base of the heel; a necessary consideration when the person is being supported to lie on their back. It is also effective at relieving pressure off the base of the heel when the hips and knees are bent, as well as protecting the toes from possible shear forces caused by contact with sheets.
The Foot Supports can be used on different types of mattresses such as foam, airflow, and low air loss mattresses.
Some of the benefits of using the Foot Supports may be:
- Reduced pain
- Improved comfort
- Improved sleep
- Improved heat exchange
- Improved pressure care
The intended purpose of Simple Stuff Works is therapeutic positioning of the body in the lying posture and is a gentle therapy used for those with movement difficulties. When used correctly it may help protect and restore an individual’s body shape. The system has no Velcro or screw action fixings, so silent changes of position can be made with little disruption to the person whilst in bed.
