The Bendy Bumper family includes bendable positioning aids that stay in place until reshaped by the caregiver. They can be molded into the desired shape to promote containment and to provide a reflex stimulus for extremity extension and subsequent flexion recoil. This unique molding capability is due to a patented hermetically-sealed lead rod structure in the center of a thick spongy foam body, which can be removed, enabling the rod to be cleaned and reused for multiple patients. The foam should be discarded and not reused from patient to patient. Two types of covers are available: washable cloth covers for multiple patient use and disposable covers for single patient use. The Bendy Bumper is specially designed for infants <gt/>1200 grams and is appropriate for all preterm and term infants.
