To-To: Reduce Manual Handling in Bedridden Patients

Posted on by admin

It’s essential that the manual handling of patients is carried out to the absolute highest standards and if possible, not at all. It can be dangerous and uncomfortable for the patient while it is time consuming for nurses and carers. Here at Genie Care we understand the difficulties surrounding manual handling and believe that our unique patient turning device, the To-To, is the ideal solution.

Regular Turning to Prevent Ulcers

The regular manual turning of bedridden patients by carers and nurses is essential to reduce the risk of pressure ulcers developing; unfortunately, in order for this to be effective, it is necessary to turn the patient as often as every two hours. This can disturb a patient’s sleep, be humiliating for the patient and consistently use the time of multiple carers.

Take Manual Handling Out Of the Equation

The To-To, however, will turn the patient every two hours (when set to do so), without the need for any form of human involvement at all. This means that:

–    The two carers that were previously required to turn the patient are free to complete other tasks
–    The patient is put at no danger through manual handling
–    The patient is not disturbed throughout the night to complete manual turning
–    The patient is guaranteed to be turned every two hours; human error or scheduling difficulties are no longer a problem
–    The patient can also benefit from the improvement of respiratory and circulation problems

How Does the To-To Work?

The To-To can be fitted to any hospital or traditional bed and can be set to turn the patient every two hours; the device is also incredibly quiet and gentle so as not to disturb the patient during the night.

Why not take a look at our video of the To-To in action so you can see for yourself how this unique device works? If you would like more information about the To-to or our range of other products, please don’t hesitate to contact us today.
