Welcome to the VENDLET patient turning system product family. A range of truly innovative patient turning systems for safely and effectively moving, positioning, and repositioning a patient in bed in a variety of care settings.
The original VENDLET patient turning system was developed by a Danish innovator who had noticed that his wife was struggling with the physical strain of turning their disabled daughter in bed. Since then, the technology has been developed and refined by a registered physiotherapist, and the VENDLET V5S & Bari are now the most advanced patient turning systems on the market.

In addition to improving the quality and dignity of your care, when used to reduce the number of carers required on a package, it can pay for itself in weeks and give you significant savings. Try our VENDLET Cost Benefit Calculator today to see how much you could save on your care packages.
|VENDLET V5S & Bari (identical except for the SWL)|
|Does the bed need to be accessed from both sides?||Because the V5S’s side rails are mechanically lifted and lowered, you don’t need to physically access both sides of the bed. The bed can be positioned against a wall and remain fully operable from one side of the bed.|
|How are the sheets attached to the system?||Velcro|
Safe Working Load (SWL)
(The bariatric version of the V5S, known as the Bari, has a SWL of 400 kg)
|System weight||56 kg|
|Is the system autoclavable?||No|
|Are the siderails manually or mechanically height-adjustable?||Fully motorised|

Double-up care packages are costly, and often unnecessary. VENDLET turning systems mechanically reposition patients by gently winding in the sheets that they are lying on. This initiates a smooth turning motion, and it takes just one carer to use their free hand to guide the client into place.
Single-handed care brings a whole wealth of benefits beside cost efficiency. Single-handed care can solve the problem in the local community of co-ordinating multiple carers to attend the same client, which can be problematic. Single-handed care can also help alleviate headaches associated with low staffing levels, for social care organisations as well as care homes and hospitals.
Using the VENDLET to reposition patients drastically reduces friction and shear, virtually eliminating the risk of tissue damage. And if the VENDLET is to be operated by just one carer, it makes it easier for care agencies to improve consistency in care. Single-handed care also allows for the development of more personal one-to-one relationships between clients and their carers, and improves levels of privacy and dignity, which have been proven to positively affect well-being.
Moving and handling patients is risky and often physically demanding, even when best practice is employed. The mechanical turning of the VENDLET removes the need for manual handling, almost completely eradicating the risk of musculoskeletal injuries and associated pains and sick days.
