Turning in bed

For the user, being able to turn in bed not only increases the comfort and prevents pressure sores. It also promotes independence and actually improves the quality of life. For the caregiver, assistive devices which make work easier, eliminate unnecessary lifting and prevent load injuries, are also extremely important. Handicare offers several assistive devices facilitating turning in bed; both devices which are used only when needed and devices which are left under the user at all times. The choice of assistive device(s) depends on the activity level of the user as well as on the number of available caregivers.

From simple to complex scenarios

Hereunder you will find Handicare's solutions for manual positioning of active and somewhat active users, from simple to more complex scenarios. More information about the different transfer aids and how to use them can be found on the respective product pages.

Combination of devices provides individually adapted solutions

To create optimal solutions for users with different needs, most assistive devices can be used in combination with one or several other manual transfer aids. The user manual, the movies and the "See also" section at the bottom of the respective product page provide more information and suggestions on combinations.

For more information about our solutions for passive users, please go to the For lifting of passive users section which is available in the left hand side navigation.
