The Footrest Bed Cradle is made from foam, cut into a triangular wedge shape with three different angles.
When positioned as a footrest, determine which of the three angles is most suitable for the patient. Note the colour of the loops that are next to the heels. You can then use the correct angle for the feet to rest against by referring to the coloured loops.
In use, the weight of the blankets will be taken by the foam, thus relieving the feet of extra pressure. The bedclothes may still touch the feet so they should keep warm. This is because they will not be in a void that is created by some other bed cradles. The weight of the bedclothes may be sufficient to hold the cradles in place, but if necessary it can be tied into position using the coloured loops.
The Footrest Bed Cradle can also be used further up the bed when the patient is sitting up in bed, as it could stop them from slipping down. Other uses could be for general posture as a back rest, pillow or side support.
