| TurnAide is the ideal patient-positioning and turning device for all health care environments. The TurnAide Therapeutic System is lightweight (less than 3 pounds), is water and stain resistant, and has a washable cover and replaceable components. The strong, antimicrobial cover is highly resistant to moisture, abrasion, punctures, and tears.The National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel recommends to "Reposition bed-bound persons at least every two hours." The TurnAide provides a quick and easy way to accomplish this, and its bright color serves as a welcome reminder to the caregiver to turn the patient.The TurnAide also helps to protect against the adverse effects of pressure, friction, and shear. The use of Fossfill -- a synthetic filling that remains fluffy while gently cradling the patient -- inside the TurnAide brings unparalleled comfort to those confined to bed for extended periods of time. The physical properties of Fossfill have been shown, in laboratory studies, to reduce pressure over 50% on the occipital and heel areas when compared with typical polyester-filled pillows.With the TurnAide, repositioning is possible in a fraction of the time originally required. What's more, multiple caregivers do not have to be present when repositioning a patient. One caregiver using this device can easily and safely reposition most patients in less time than it would take multiple caregivers not using a TurnAide.A Medwest Ergonics study shows that, when using the TurnAide, the caregiver has up to 39% less lower backstrain than without its use. Imagine the potential difference, over time, this could have in Workman's Compensation claims.
