To To: How Does the Patient Turning Device Work?

Posted on by admin

Caring for patients with severe mobility issues can be time consuming but it is necessary to provide adequate pressure care to ensure that patients do not develop pressure sores. Unfortunately, manual turning can be difficult for both patients and carers due to the time it takes, the frequency of the turning and the risks involved.

Here at Genie Care we have developed a revolutionary patient turning device that eliminates the need for manual turning; this innovative development can guarantee that patients receive the necessary care as the issue of human error is no longer present.

Gentle Turning through Innovative Technology

The way in which the To-To operates is presented in this diagram and, as you can see, the programmable device offers a simple yet effective turning system.

The device can be programmed to turn the patient as frequently as necessary from 15 minutes to 2 hours throughout the day and night.

One of the most advantageous aspects of using this device, of course, is that the patient can be turned throughout the night without being disturbed. The patient receives both a full night’s sleep and the necessary pressure care; something that is simply not possible with manual turning.

Benefits for Both Carers and Patients

At Genie Care our aim is to develop new equipment that offers benefits for both carers and patients. The To-To is a prime example of this.

–    Carers spend less time completing manual turning and can use this additional time to provide a higher quality of care.
–    Carers are not put at risk of physical harm; a risk that is present during the manual turning process.
–    Patients no longer have to cope with the discomfort or embarrassment that can be experienced during manual turning.
–    Similarly to carers, the patients are also not put at risk of physical harm.
–    Patients are guaranteed to receive the necessary pressure care that they require.
