Patient Turning System
The TurnAssist™ Patient Turning System is the next step forward in patient positioning. The ability to make faster, easier patient turns while preventing nursing injuries is a must in today’s healthcare landscape. That’s why we developed a smarter way to position and turn patients. It starts at the bottom. The bottom turning sheet has four-way glide capabilities, allowing faster and easier turns.
Made with advanced materials that allow breathability, TurnAssist can also be used with low air loss mattresses. The high quality wedges are completely covered with a wipeable, removable cover with sturdy handles for easy repositioning. Optional incontinence pads keep patients dry while protecting the system. Easy to use and easy to clean, the TurnAssist will save nursing time and prevent injuries.
Both 30° Positioning Wedges included measure at 18″ for the upper torso for added support and a 14″ for the lower torso. The heavy duty handles allow for precise repositioning and are covered with a wipe-clean, moisture-proof fabric.
The TurnAssist turning sheet contains a stretchable, flexible, anti-microbial-treated fabric. Six low-profile handles on bottom of turning sheet won’t get caught on the bed or sheets.
Place the glide sheet under the patient, placing the top of the sheet just slightly above the shoulders.
Roll the patient on their side and fold the glide sheet on top of the patient.
Place the larger 18″ wedge under the upper torso and the smaller 14″ wedge under the lower torso, beneath the glide sheet.
To Reposition Patient
Roll the patient on their side, using the TurnAssist glide sheet to facilitate turning. Use the wedge handle and remove the wedges from under the patient.
Use the top handles on the glide sheet to slide the sheet up or down the bed.
Use the side handles on the TurnAssist glide sheet to turn the patient on their side.
Reapply the larger 18″ wedge under the upper torso and the smaller 14″ wedge under the lower torso, beneath the glide sheet.
