The Kyphosis Pad is made from foam, with a soft interlock cover. The Kyphosis Pad can be worn under the patient’s clothing, with the cut-out section placed over the spine. The Pad is kept in position by doing up the side sections, around the patient’s chest with the Velcro fastening. Wearing the Kyphosis Pad may divert pressure from bony areas of the spine to ease discomfort and help prevent pressure sores on the back.
The Kyphosis Pad may possibly be helpful for some cases of Kyphoscoliosis (Double curvature of the spine, both backwards and sideways) or Scoliosis (curvature of the spine to one side). In some cases, our Pressure Relief Overlay Mattress may also help this type of patient when sleeping.
