Patient turning and positioning plays a key role in pressure care management, both in the prevention of pressure ulcers and their treatment. It’s also a high risk task for care givers with the potential for muscular skeletal injuries and repetitive strain injury.
We understood the need for a better solution and introduced the world’s first powered patient turner to the UK in answer. The VENDLET patient turn aid takes away the manual handling involved in patient turning and repositioning and instead introduces the concept of mechanised handling: a gentler, more comfortable system that virtually eliminates shear and friction and a single-handed care solution.
Patient positioning is paramount for the well-being of persons who are cared for around the bed, particularly those vulnerable to pressure damage or who have reduced mobility. Effective patient positioning also has a positive impact on care givers’ health and promotes safety and efficiency in patient handling. The LEJRELET sleep positioning cushions are designed to make positioning much simpler for carers and provide superior comfort, support and pressure care.
