English translation:cushion or pillow???
Explanation:
In Danish a 'pølle' is a cylindrical cushion. (Vinterberg & Bodelsen)

Could this be something like that?
I have also seen what the patient called a 'pølle' with a smaller diameter in the middle, in that case to keep the head in position, but it could be used to stabilise a limb too.
