Turn and Position Patients Quickly and Comfortably

Med-Surg nurses are the largest nursing specialty in the United States and act as true master coordinators of the unit. They require excellent time management skills, which is made even more critical due to high patient-to-nurse ratio.  Even so, tasks such as turning patients every two hours to prevent pressure injuries becomes a challenge. With products like the Q2Roller® Lateral Turning Device and the HoverMatt® Single-Patient Use mattress, nurses can turn patients quickly and comfortably using minimal manual effort. For other patient handling tasks in Med-Surg, the HoverMatt and other HoverSling devices can help boost, vertically lift and transfer patients in less time with fewer staff. All of HoverTech’s single-patient use products are comprised of advanced breathable materials and are designed to reduce skin shear while utilizing the air-assisted feature for transferring and positioning tasks.

In the event of a fall, the HoverJack® Air Patient Lift will gently lift the patient up to bed/stretcher height. The HoverJack can accommodate those who are injured or frail by keeping them in a stable position, and bariatric patients up to 1,200 lbs. In the event of an emergency, the Evacuation HoverJack® Device is designed to move patients down the stairs safely. HoverTech products help reduce workers’ compensation expenses by easing the strain on nurses, allowing them to continue working at their fullest capability.
