PROSWedge Frequently Asked Questions:

Are the HoverMatt PROSWedge reusable or disposable?

The HoverMatt PROSWedge are disposable.  The wedges can be used by the same patient during the length of their stay as long as they are clean and not damaged.

How do I know if I have properly placed the wedges?

The easiest way to know if you have properly placed the wedges to off-load the sacrum, is if the sacrum is “floating”.  This means that the sacrum is not touching the bed’s surface.  You can check this by placing your hand between the two wedges.  If the patient’s sacrum is touching the bed, reposition the wedges to ensure the sacrum is not touching.

What is the easiest way to remove the wedges from under the patient?

The easiest way to remove the wedges is to lift up the back edge of the wedge and slide them out from under the patient.  To ease this process, if using a sling, lift the edge of the sling utilizing a lift.  If using an air-assisted matt, inflate the matt to remove the wedges.

How do I clean the product?

In between patient uses, the wedge should be wiped down with a cleaning solution used by your hospital for medical equipment disinfection. A 10:1 bleach solution (10 parts water: one part bleach) or disinfectant wipes can also be used. It is important to follow the cleaning solution manufacturer’s instructions for use, including dwell time and saturation.  Do not launder the HoverMatt PROSWedge. NOTE: Cleaning with bleach solution may discolor fabric.
