Simple Stuff Works Sleep Positioning System


The Simple Stuff Works Sleep Positioning System received the best-established product award at the 2015 British Healthcare Awards

The positioning system is modular and easy to use, designed to support a user at night or during the day in order to protect and maintain their body shape and prevent contractures and deformities. The base of the system consists of two layers of non-slip mesh, a soft mattress topper and topped by a fitted sheet. Various postural supports are placed and around the individual. The system is completely velcro, strap and buckle free (except for foot supports) allowing for silent adjustment without waking up the user. It also gives the user freedom of movement instead of rigid postural control.

Material used for the positioning system is breathable, wicks vapour away from the body and keep the body cool. The material is washable under high temperature. The system is available in tot (cot), child (single bed) and adult (single bed) size. Individual postural component can be used as part of the overall positioning system or on its own.
