Knee Bolsters and Support Pillows
Knee bolsters and support pillows are essential for numerous different treatments. On one hand, they help older patients get into difficult positions. On the other hand, knee bolsters offer comfort during the treatment. Especially lymph drainage demands position pillows.
What Do You Need Knee Bolsters and Support Pillows For
Depending on the use, whether it's a physiotherapeutic treatment or a massage, support pillows can help in different ways. Their benefits include:
- comfortable position during massages in a supine position
- avoidance of hyperlordosis
- preventing overextension of the cervical spine
- pressure relief of arms, legs and head
- reduction of pain
- support of therapeutic treatments
A knee bolster makes sure that during a massage in a supine position, the whole spine is lying down so that the weight is distributed evenly over the entire back. Knee bolsters, support pillows and co. also help reduce the pressure on the knees when the patient is in a prone position and are being used during physiotherapy to correct a postural deformity.
Where are Knee Bolsters and Wedge Pillows Being Used?
Wherever comfort when lying down plays a role, support pillows are being used. Knee bolsters are not only handy for massages and physiotherapy but are also great in cosmetic studios, tattoo studios, the nursing sector and medical practices.
Shape, Color and Density
The Massageliegnhaus offers knee bolsters in different shapes and densities for a variety of uses. In our shop, you’ll find round bolsters, half-round bolsters and ¾ bolsters in many colors.
Before purchasing a knee bolster, take a look at the material and filling. Knee bolsters with a PU leather cover like our Fluffy by ZEN Massage Ware are eco-friendly, skin-friendly and also oil and water-resistant. They can be cleaned easily and are always ready for use. We recommend a soft foam filling so that the muscles can relax immediately.
Size plays a role as well. Masseurs and physiotherapists should use support pillows that are at least 50 cm long and 10 to 30 cm wide. With such pillows, you are prepared for anything.
Tip: Knee bolsters are also a great addition to your own home. Use them to optimize the position of your neck when sleeping. Choose a knee bolster that is a bit longer if you’re a restless sleeper. You’ll feel the difference in the morning when you wake up relaxed and pain-free.
