Levitex PostureCare are on a mission to promote 24hr posture support as the no 1 rest and recovery aid for long term treatment.

With waiting lists and waiting times at an all time high in the NHS, the need for expedited recovery at home and on NHS wards is required more than ever. We strongly believe that with proper postural intervention, we can both prevent injuries caused by being bed-bound long term and aid recovery and proper bed rest.

Postural care is a way of preserving and re-establishing body shape for people with movement difficulties. The principles of posture care are about ensuring that everybody with movement difficulties has their body shape protected over a 24-hour period, in all settings, to maintain or regain good body shape and reduce the risk of further deterioration and secondary complications”

Postural intervention in practice:

The gentleman in question, managed over 2hrs in prone having previously not tolerated this therapy. His oxygen requirements reduced from 90% to 45% whilst proned. He only came out of the prone position to allow a doctor to insert a new line and to have something to eat.He was so pleased with the pillows and how comfortable he was, he has already agreed to go back to a prone position later this afternoon.

Posture Care was created due a huge gap in the healthcare industry for innovative, yet simple and effective products that could help in providing postural support to those in need.

Levitex acquired Posture Care to further their work in educating the healthcare market in the need for postural management.
