FOR HOSPITAL USE ONLY
Bertie Positioning aid was developed to be used in conjunction with Claire's Nest, but can also be used alone.
The Bertie was developed by Cuski to support the neurodevelopment of the preterm infant. It can be used to support infants in prone, supine and side-lying positions.
It is made from soft brushed cotton and filled with special Polyethylene PE beads that enable to Bertie to be moulded around the baby’s body and therefore better mimic an infant’s position in the womb.
The Bertie aims to support comfort, flexion, alignment and encourages self-comforting behaviours.
Nest sizes are provided for guidance only, therefore each baby should be assessed individually and an appropriate sized nest for their needs chosen. Cuski’s Bertie positioning aid can be used to help customise each nest for individual use, supporting the baby comfortably in a prone, supine or side lying position.
A flexed, midline position should be maintained within the nest and the baby should always be able to move their arms and hands freely, allowing movement towards their face and mouth, giving them the opportunity to self-comfort.
Bertie can be washed up to 90 degrees and then cool dried.
Each Bertie weighs 505 grams.
