Pressure Relief Pads, Mud

Definition : Cushioning pads filled with mud that are designed to reduce pressure on specific areas of the body. These pads consist of a sealed plastic (e.g., vinyl) enclosure filled with a semi-liquid mixture of water and refined earth; the enclosure may include a valve to fill and/or refill the pad. Dedicated mud-filled pressure relief pads may be conformed in a variety of shapes and sizes. They are mainly used to distribute localized pressure to larger body areas or to shift the body weight to a different position, especially to prevent or alleviate pressure sores. The pads may be used on top of chairs, wheelchairs, and beds.
