Arm- and Leg Rests
In medical practices and hospitals, arm- and leg rests are used to elevate and support extremities during medical examinations and treatments. The support can be used both to support arms during blood samples and to elevate legs during bandage changes. The low weight of the arm- and leg rest permits transport, allowing it to be used in different locations. As a result it is more flexible and easier to use than blood drawing chairs or examination couches.
Versatile Application as an Armrest
In the medical practice, arm- and leg rests are generally used as arm supports. They are predominately used during blood samples, where the mobile support is placed next to a chair. The forearm is then placed on the rest, which provides a comfortable support thanks to its ergonomically shaped surface.
Wound care and bandage changes present further potential applications. As the armrest can be adjusted in height, it can be adapted to the individual needs of the patients, which facilitates treatments.
Leg Rests for Wound Care
The support is generally used as a leg rest for wound care, e.g. during bandage changes. Since the height of the rest is adjustable, the patient can be treated while sitting on an examination table as well as a normal chair.
Additionally, the tilt of the support is adjustable, allowing the position of the leg to be adjusted to individual needs.
To guarantee a comfortable positioning of the leg, the arm- and leg rests are equipped with an upholstery made from PU-foam. The material can be disinfected, allowing for a higher hygiene level in the practice, even if many different patients are treated.
Different Available Versions of Arm- and Leg Rests
Generally, the arm- and leg rests offered at Praxisdienst are made from a chrome-plated steel frame and can be adjusted in height and tilt of the resting surface. As a result, the supports can be individually adjusted to every situation and treatment. The used padding material further guarantees a secure and comfortable support of the extremities.
Depending on the material, the arm- and leg rests are available with locking wheels or a slip-resistant base. Additionally, we offer an armrest with a saddle stool as a combo unit.
This space-saving stool-armrest-combination is connected through a metal pole, which offers stability and prevents the armrest from shifting. The wheels allow for an easy handling and movement of the treatment combo.
