Geri Chair Ischial Step Cushion
Generally, the reason to use a Geri-Chair Ischial Step or wedge is to keep the resident’s hips at the back of the Geri Chair. The Geri-Chair Ischial Step utilizes the natural curvature of the body to give an “Anchor Support.” Ischial Steps inhibit the hips from sliding forward without using any type of groin abductor; therefore, they are not considered a restraint by most survey teams. Ischial Steps are layered with Visco on the back portion for pressure redistribution. These devices have an Anti-Skid bottom to prevent them from sliding, even when in a reclined position.
