The Knee Separator is made of foam covered in soft interlock material, used to help prevent the patient’s knees rubbing together when lying in bed. The Knee Separator will replace using a pillow and is easy to wash.
Position the thick central part of the pad on one leg, so it protects the knees from each other. Fasten the two soft elasticised Hook & Loop Tape straps to keep the separator in position. Very bony people may need a pad on both knees. The Knee Separator has also been used on some patients sitting in chairs and not just to separate knees, but also on the back of the leg to pad the leg from the chair frame. They can also be used on arms etc. as protective pads.
