Snooooooze Sleep System Positioning

Snooooooze Sleep systems are not designed to stop movements, but simply to provide different levels of support and prevent the child or the adult from getting stuck in harmful positions during the night.

Legs

W leg through

W leg through

W leg trough support cushion positions your the legs preventing rotation and reducing the risk of dislocation.

Leg alignment is achieved with the whole leg supported and positioned correctly, the wrap (can be used with or without the wrap) prevents the client crossing their legs and gives extra security to the position being kept.

T Roll

For clients who find the W Leg Trough unsuitable due to contraction at the knee, T-Rolls are an ideal solution for a presentation of legs that come to mid-line.

Can be used with other components of the sleep system range.

T-roll

The T ROLL is an excellent item that can easily be used incorrectly, on the left the legs are in alignment and the feet safely planted, the right illustrates a poor hip posture and potential pressure points around the feet.

SIDE POSTURE

Body Roll

Body Roll

The body roll cushion can support the head, trunk and legs.
With the child or the adult is side positioned their specific posture will show a tendency to either roll backwards or forward. When the Body Roll cushion is used under the neck and between the legs at the groin it can stabilise the upper body.

The usual placement is down the back where it is possible to open the posture to free the lower arm. The Large Pillow is recommended to place between the legs. It can be used to support down the front for the recover position, offering a ‘stretch’ posture.
