The John Lester Head Support
The John Lester head support was designed in conjunction with the University Hospital of Southampton NHS Trust. The concept for the head rest came from the need to retain the patients dignity whilst in the care of the mortuary.
The design for the head rest took into consideration the natural position of a person when laid down for family and friends to be able to see their loved ones in a more respectful way, as it also stops the lividity of hypostasis of the face of the patient if it is used on arrival of the patient.
The head rest allows for the practical aspect of controlling the purging associated with pulmonary oedema and gastric reflux, which reduces the need to extensively wash the patient. It comes with a small hole to allow fluid to drain, mainly when disinfecting. It is also easy to wipe, clean and disinfect.
We also provide other head rests and head blocks, which are available to buy online
