The Resident Specific Knee Wedge is laminated with soft Visco
elastic for pressure redistribution. The wedge is fully covered with medical-grade fabric and topped with a removable padding. Smaller knee wedges are utilized most often when
one of the lower extremities is contracting at 90
degrees or greater. Custom measurements are required. This is a resident-specific device. There is no "standard" version. Please call JDM for help measuring and ordering this product.
All measurements are to be taken in inches with the patient lying in the supine position. It's best if measurements are taken with a yard stick.
A. Measure from behind the knee (Popliteal) straight down to the surface of the mattress.
B. Measure from behind the knee (Popliteal) to the heel. Do not measure the curve of the patients calf.
C. Place the ruler flat on the mattress surface and measure from the heel to where the thigh or buttocks first meets the bed
