Self-Proning with Levitex® Pillows

Dr. Ilan Lieberman is the medical director here at Levitex and over the past couple of months, he’s been working on the front line with the team at Wythenshawe Hospital in the fight against Covid-19. To say we’re proud of him and all the other doctors and nurses across the UK right now is an understatement.

He continues to work tirelessly in the Intensive Care Unit and has told us that one of the critical interventions being used to help patients with coronavirus is the use of pillows to position them in prone.

We wanted to help, so we’ve already donated more than 100 of our Levitex pillows to ICUs across the North West region to offer some support.

Using his experience in ICUs, Ilan has put together a how-to guide and a short video for us about self-proning, covering the best way to self-prone.

How to self-prone

Dr. Ilan has produced two short videos on how to self-prone in your own home if you are having breathing difficulties due to symptoms of coronavirus Covid-19. We have also produced a downloadable booklet of his self-proning advice adapted from his work in ICUs.
