Project Description

TurnAid is a new, independent patient-turning system with careful repositioning (decubitus prophylaxis) of the patient in the bed.

The patient-turning system enables nursing staff to reposition the patient and determine the lying position in a gentle and dignified manner.

In addition, the TurnAid reduces strain on the back for nursing staff and family members during the repositioning of light through to heavy patients. Excessive spinal loading and resultant back pain can be significantly minimised.

TurnAid is easy to install on all commercially available nursing beds. using appropriate adaptors. The basic function of the bed is retained. It can be used together with anti-decubitus mattresses for rapid decubitus treatment. A positive side effect of the construction design is that the patient is prevented from falling out of the bed. Very well suited to hospital or house and home care.
