How Is a Leg Trough Used?
To get the most out of your leg trough, simply lay back and place your leg in the natural gap between the cushioned sides. The slight elevation serves to promote healthy blood flow to the area, whilst relieving the pressure associated with the build up or sores and ulcers. Depending on your condition, a Leg Trough can have a number of therapeutic and rehabilitative qualities to aid with your recovery.
What Conditions Can a Support Trough Help With?
- Injury recovery
- Leg circulation issues
- Operation rehabilitation
- Orthopaedic injury recovery
- Reduction of pressure in patients assessed as at risk of ulcers and sores
- Varicose vein operation recovery
The Leg Trough is an ideal choice for individuals who spend long periods of time in bed and who therefore often suffer from excess pressure on the foot and heel. It elevates the leg and foot so that the heel does not come into contact with the surface of the bed, eliminating direct pressure and instead supporting the foot and leg with comfortable foam.
While the Leg Trough is great for anybody who requires long-term comfort, it is also suitable for anybody who has suffered a foot injury or who has recently had surgery. By lifting the foot away from the bed, it allows the area the time it needs to heal by reducing the risk of it becoming irritated by the bed surface. Please note that a medical professional should be consulted before using the Leg Trough to support an injury.
Highly Sanitary Wipe-Clean Cover
The Thorpe Mill Rehabilitation Leg Support Trough comes with a highly sanitary polyurethane cover that can easily be wiped clean between uses. Perfect for use in hospitals and care homes, this cover promotes impeccable levels of sanitation and allows you to transfer the wedge between patients without risking cross-contamination.
