Keep Your Patients Safe & Secure In The Bedside Chair with

The Prevalon™ Seated Positioning System

Challenges of the bedside chair

Sitting in the bedside chair is an important part of the recovery process – but it can also increase the risk of sacral pressure injuries, slouching, discomfort and falls. Fear of these risk factors may cause patients to get back in bed. The Prevalon™ Seated Positioning System (SPS) helps address these issues while keeping them comfortably seated. START A FREE TRIAL

Designed to prevent and protect

The SPS is uniquely engineered to keep your patient in the optimal, upright seated position without the need for constant boosting or repositioning. The multi-chamber air cushion redistributes pressure to provide comfort and security while also reducing friction and shear – proven risk factors for pressure injuries. It also provides stability to minimize the risk of falls from the chair. The Microclimate Management Pad effectively absorbs moisture to protect your patients’ skin. By promoting comfort and confidence, the system may improve patient compliance to chair sitting.

Proven prevention and cost savings

One published study found that nurses were more likely to use the Seated Positioning System over traditional efforts of pulling patients upright in chairs. The use of the system provided a bundled approach that focused on preventing patient falls and pressure injuries and reduced employee injuries.1

Safely Glide Your Patients to the Upright Position

The Prevalon Seated Positioning System makes it easier for clinicians to safely glide patients to an optimal upright-seated position without lifting. It is uniquely engineered to keep the seated patient in place, minimizing the need for repetitive boosting and repositioning. It is also comfortable for patients, which may improve their confidence and compliance to chair sitting.

Benefits For You and Your Patients

Reduces Boosting – The innovative one-way glide resists forward movement, ensuring patients remain in the optimal position.

Promotes Proper Ergonomics – The multi-grip handles improve healthcare worker posture and body mechanics.

Redistributes Pressure – Multi-chamber air cushion provides comfort and security while allowing patient to shift in chair.

Manages Moisture – The Microclimate Management Pad is effectively absorbent to protect patients’ skin while allowing air to flow through.
