Twin Turner - Applying Sling
A good tip:
Use of the Twin Turner sling as a helper for other slings or for therapy and rehabilitation
Did you know that the Twin Turner sling can be used to assist in applying another sling? For example when a patient in bed has difficulty turning and staying in a side-lying position.
Apply the Twin Turner sling with the patient in supine, turn and hold in a side-lying position with the Twin Turner, while placing a Repositioning sling, changing bed linen, or applying a Basic High sling for an out of bed transfer.
In this way, it is possible for a single helper to apply the sling – something that would otherwise require two people.
As seen in the video below the Twin Turner stays put during the transfer. When the patient is placed in the wheelchair you can remove the Twin Turner together with the other sling.
A good tip: Use a Ceiling Hoist for Daily Living Activities
Enhance patient mindset and recovery through simple daily activities supported by a ceiling hoist.
A good tip: Gait training
The Trainer Module and Positioning lock can be used to adjust and emphasize the patient’s rehab goals within either a session or whenever changes are needed.
A good tip: Avoid the risks of falling during rehabilitation
What do you do if your patient has a loss of balance when standing or walking?
A good tip: Training on steps and stairs
When using the Trainer Module, it is possible to repeat exercises on stairs and uneven surfaces often and safely for both patient and staff.
