Read how the Raizer Emergency Lifting Chair is used in falls response for West Suffolk NHS FT. Dale Boustead, Moving and Handling Advisor, talks us through their decision to get the Raizer on board, and how it's being utilised on wards.
Helen is 23, and quadriplegic thanks to a rare neurological condition. Helen had been relying on carers to reposition her in bed, which was interrupting her sleep and, for her, lacked dignity. The VENDLET has given her 'much more control, a better night's sleep, independence and some dignity back".
Beatrice suffered from severe neuropathic pain, which was exacerbated during repositioning. The smooth movement of the Vendlet and reduction in hands-on care greatly improved her own, and her carers', well-being.
For Bernard, the combination of a Vendlet and other care equipment meant that his care package could be reduced by 40 minutes a day. This reduction in cost, along with improved well-being, enabled him and his wife to stay in their own home.
Belinda's dementia posed challenges for both herself and her carers when it came to repositioning and personal care. Read how the introduction of the Vendlet eased this, and why it could eventually be removed.
