The Solid Insert Coccyx Scoop comes with an anti-skid bottom, a coccyx scoop, a contoured two-leg channeled medial thigh separator and a one-inch layer of Visco. The contoured leg channels added to the wedge shape provide a slight abduction and improved alignment of the lower extremities. The coccyx scoop and Visco layering help redistribute pressure on the Coccyx, the I.T.’s and the entire seating area. The wedge shape helps to inhibit sliding. All coccyx scoop cushions are layered with Visco elastic polyurethane to redistribute pressure at key pressure points.
These cushions are an excellent preventative device for those residents with slight lower extremity adduction problems, and with recently healed decubs.
, If a 3-inch to 2-inch, or a 4-inch to 2-inch coccyx scoop incline is required, please use the anti-hammocking options.
Considerations when utilizing a Solid-Insert Cushion or Wedge:
- The Solid-Insert in these cushions eliminate the hammocking effect of a sling-bottom wheelchair by elevating the individual above the upholstery tubing.
- All of JDM’s Solid Inserts must have a minimum of three inches of our High Resiliency (HR) Polyurethane as a cushioning damper between the insert and the patient, or the cushions/wedge may have a combination of at least two inches of HR along with an additional inch of Gel-Infused Visco Elastic (G.I.V.E.) for pressure redistribution. In other words, all standard solid inserts must be a minimum of three-inches thick. Please note: due to G.I.V.E.’s compression capabilities, the additional one inch added to the cushion or wedges’s height is minimized. Example: 3” x 18” 16” with Visco (031816-AS-V) will sit like a 2” thick cushion with a solid insert.
- All of JDM’s Solid-Insert Cushions have Velcro strapping to attach under the vinyl seat to prevent the cushion from twisting and sliding.
- All of JDM’s Solid-Insert Cushions have a rubberized anti-skid bottom to further prevent the cushion from sliding, as well as to prevent the wheelchair’s upholstery tubing from rubbing into the fabric.
- By utilizing JDM’s feature code system, the cushion or wedge may be modified to accommodate many of the problems found in long-term care.
