Elbowlift Suspension Pad


Elbowlift Suspension Pad (View the video) protects the sensitive olecranon and olecranon bursa from friction burns and contusions by elevating and cushioning the elbow in smooth foam. Elbowlift helps prevent pressure ulcers, pressure sores, olecranon bursitis, ulnar neuritis, and other skin injuries.

Elbowlift Suspension Pad benefits patients who are bedridden or who spend time in a wheelchair. The bony prominence at the elbow can make this area susceptible to pressure sores, contusions, and friction burns.

In addition to using Elbowlift, the following action items can help protect the olecranon and the olecranon bursa:
• Use a lift sheet, transfer board, or a lifting device
when moving patients across any surface

• Remove elbow and heel protectors every eight
hours to inspect the skin

• Use transparent adhesive dressings or sprays to provide a protective “second skin”

• Keep bed linens smooth and wrinkle-free and
remove foreign objects from the bed (ex. crumbs)
