Simple Stuff Works Supine Stabiliser

Leg support designed to help keep a neutral, supine position for longer periods of time

The Supine Stabiliser is a leg support piece which is designed to help an individual to keep a neutral, supine position for long periods of time. It is worn above the knees, across the thighs, and it stabilises the pelvis and the femora.

The Supine Stabiliser supports the legs to be therapeutically aligned from a habitual, unsupported, or destructive position. A few examples of postures achieved with the help of the Supine Stabiliser are:

  • ‘Wind sweeping’ to the right or left
  • Internally rotating both hips
  • Externally rotating both hips

The Supine Stabiliser can be used with individuals of all ages during immobilisation after surgery, to therapeutically align the legs and avoid contractures. It has a cotton mix terry towelling cover and is filled with a specialised fibre that wicks moisture away from the body, therefore it may be placed next to the skin. The Supine Stabiliser comes in five sizes, from infant to adult. It is entirely washable and simple to use making it one of the most popular support options in the Simple Stuff Works range. 

Some of the benefits of using the Supine Stabiliser may be:

  • Reduced pain
  • Improved comfort
  • Improved sleep
  • Improved balance
  • Improved cardiac function
  • Improved respiratory function
  • Improved heat exchange
  • Improved pressure care
  • Improved digestion
  • Decreased tone

The intended purpose of Simple Stuff Works is therapeutic positioning of the body in the lying posture, and is a gentle therapy used for those with movement difficulties. When used correctly it may help protect and restore an individual’s body shape. The system has no Velcro or screw action fixings, so silent changes of position can be made with little disruption to the person whilst in bed.

FAQ

Q: What is the difference between the Supine Stabliser and the Multi-Plane Stabiliser?

A: The Supine Stabiliser and Multi-Plane Stabiliser are similar types of leg positioning supports, however they have several key differences. The below table compares the two...

Supine Stabiliser Multi-Plane Stabiliser

More stable - increased base of support encourages good position throughout the night

 

More flexible and dynamic - it allows for increased internal or external rotation as well as increased hip and knee flexion based on the location and amount of extra wedges used.

Promotes abduction and external rotation while allowing for knee extension - it doesn't raise the hip or knee much from the surface.

Smoother and curved finishing at the top which allows the bed sheets to be closer to the body.

 

Easier to position the client - no obstruction on the sides.
