Simple Stuff Works Stabilising Mesh

The foundation of an award-winning sleep system

The base of our award-winning sleep system starts with two layers of non-slip mesh. The flexibility of this base layer makes it one of the most dynamic parts of the system.

It is between the two layers of mesh where supports are placed around an individual to create the ideal position for them. The mesh is one of the most hygienic bases for a positioning system as it is anti-microbial, complete with SteriTouch running through it, anti-mite, anti-fungal, entirely washable and conforms to Oeko-Tex Standard 100. It holds any supports firmly and is completely silent to use, making changes in position throughout the night as gentle and calm as possible. The mesh can be used to also hold other pieces of equipment in place as well as holding the individual which means that the overall positioning system is very secure whilst allowing for easy changes in position. It is available in a variety of sizes and can be adapted for use on double beds (please enquire for this).

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.

Simple Stuff Works Temperate Topper

A soft mattress topper for added comfort and temperature regulation

The Temperate Topper is a soft mattress topper which is used underneath the fitted bed sheet, and on top of the layers of Stabilising Mesh. The topper provides a padded layer over the mesh, and without this in place, there is only the sheet between the person’s body and the mesh.

It is filled with a state of the art non-woven fibre material which is machine washable to 90°. Natural fibres wick moisture away which prevents maceration of the skin and allows air to circulate around the individual, helping to maintain a dry, temperate environment for them to rest in.

The Temperate Topper aids in thermoregulation, being non-dynamic. This means that the non-woven fibre does not retain heat as foam is known to do, thereby neither cooling nor warming the individual. This is an essential safety feature for those who find it difficult to control their own body temperature, so as not to interfere with their unique temperature regulatory system.

The topper provides a soft layer under the person’s body where the bulk of their weight lies. Comfort of the patient is necessary as postural care must be gentle and humane. If the patient is not comfortable, then muscle tone may increase, and the sleep system is less likely to get used.

The Temperate Topper is available in both single and cot sizes. The single size can also be used on larger beds.

Simple Stuff Works Fitted Sheets

Comfort, durability, and practicality…

Just three of the words used to look for the perfect soft sheet for an individual to lie on, on top of this award winning positioning system. These sheets are made from a beautiful cotton material which is hard wearing but lovely and soft. The cotton sheet is the sheet that will be placed between the patient and either the mattress or any additional layers.

They are extra big and stretchy so that supports can be placed around an individual and the sheet will still conform to their body. With a four way stretch, the sheet ‘moulds’ over the sleep system parts that are placed below it. In this way the contours of the parts are not lost ensuring good support and optimising contact with the person’s body.

These cotton bed sheets aid in thermoregulation, made from a natural fibre cotton mix that wicks moisture away from the body. This can be described as “thermo-neutral” meaning that it neither gives heat to the person’s body nor takes heat away from the person’s body. This is a necessary property where thermoregulation and/or sweating is a problem for the user.

They are available in cot bed, single, and double (upon request) sizes.

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.

Simple Stuff Works Wedges

Soft yet firm versatile support option

These soft fibre wedges are manufactured using a specialist fibre and are covered in a soft yet durable polyester-mix material. The fibre is highly breathable and wicks moisture away from the skin, allowing the person to remain comfortable whilst reducing the risk of tissue damage.

The soft fibre wedges increase the patient’s base of support – this can spread the load and reduce body tone. It is recommended to use a soft fibre wedge to support the patient in a therapeutic manner. The fibre wedge counters the forces acting on the patient’s body, however in areas where forces acting on the body are stronger, we recommend using alternative Simple Stuff Works supports.

The wedges are tapered at one end, meaning they can be used in a variety of positions and at different areas of the body such as the pelvis, rib cage, head. This will have the effect of maintaining the body’s position or improving it. The wedge is positioned between the two layers of stabilising mesh alongside the patient’s body. It can be used to support the patient in a variety of assessed positions including supine and side lying.

They are available in five different sizes.

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.

Simple Stuff Works Lateral Supports

Firm support option with comfort of a padded cover

There are a range of Simple Stuff Works support options that Medifab supplies to make support for an individual within this therapeutic positioning system. One of these options is the padded lateral supports that can be used in conjunction with our other supports to make a comfortable position for the individual.

These padded lateral supports are perfect for providing firmer support around the torso and limbs for an individual using this therapeutic positioning equipment. They are L-shaped with soft, washable, removable pads which cover them. They are then positioned in between the two layers of mesh which hold them in place securely. They can also be used to support other items such as leg supports or pillows.

The supports are made of a specialised fibre material that wicks moisture away from the body. This can help with regulation of the body temperature.

These come as a pair.

Simple Stuff Works Supine Stabiliser
