A simple and effective means of protecting the elbow area against pressure sores. A quilted fibre filled pad which is machine washable, adjustable, soft and comfortable. These elbow protectors are most suitable for those at risk of developing pressure sores — for example, those unable to get out of bed. Or for those who simply suffer with delicate or damaged elbows or forearms.
The soft material protects the elbow area from skin damage. Allows the user to experience less pressure on the elbow area, typically a vulnerable location for pressure sores. Pressure sores are injuries to the skin and underlying tissue caused by excess or prolonged pressure. Pressure sores are more likely to occur on the bonier parts of people’s bodies. Individuals affected by pressure sores experience localised pain and discomfort.
Our elbow protector can help prevent the formation of sores around the elbow area and can even ease the pain of already developing sores. But be careful - if sores are already forming, you may need to find a more specialised product. Comes in a single, one-size-fits-all configuration.
Early warning signs of developing sores include, but are not limited to: Skin discolouration - this may be very subtle, with paler skin presenting with pink, red or darker patches and darker skin showing purple or blue patches. Excessively warm, spongy or hard sections of skin around bony joints. Or localised itchiness around bony areas.
Sold as a pair they feature two soft foam fastenings straps which are adjustable to suit different sized arms. They fasten using a simple hook & loop fastening technique.
