This document is intended to provide guidance for Healthcare Professionals prescribing Configura® cushions. It is important to note that prescribing cushions is a professional decision and whilst we (Accora) are able to describe our cushions, we are not qualified to prescribe.
We are often asked what Waterlow/Braden etc score our cushions are appropriate for. A direct answer to this question is not straightforward as many of the factors contributing to a Waterlow score are beyond the scope of a cushion (i.e. continence, medication, build etc.). We are however able to give broad guidance on what level of risk our cushions are appropriate for.
