Turning and Positioning
Maximize Patient Comfort and Avoid Caregiver Injury
Turning and positioning is critical for bed-bound patients, yet it is often challenging for caregivers to manage these patient handling tasks that require significant time and physical effort. To address these concerns, HoverTech designed the Q2Roller® Lateral Turning Device for easy and efficient lateral patient turning, eliminating the need for manual lifting. The Q2 Roller is comprised of two inflatable chambers that are easily controlled by caregivers to achieve optimal positioning for the patient.
The HoverMatt® Air Transfer System is the seamless option for turning and positioning, boosting, proning and lateral transfers in all clinical environments. The HoverMatt uses technology to lift the patient on a cushion of air in a supine position, providing comfort and stability while reducing the risk of pressure injuries.
The same turning and positioning tasks can also be performed with the HoverMatt® SPU Link and HoverMatt® Half-Matt. The HoverMatt SPU Link is similar to the traditional full-length HoverMatt with the addition of link straps that can be attached to the bedframe to help keep the HoverMatt in place. The HoverMatt® Half Matt offers a shorter variation of the full-size mattress, and is ideal for use during cystoscopy, labor and delivery and other gynecological and urological procedures. When turning and positioning with the Half-Matt, an additional caregiver is required to hold and position the legs.
When lifting a patient is necessary or preferred for turning and positioning tasks, the HoverSling® Repositioning Sheet and HoverSling® Split-Leg provide a two-for-one solution by combining the same features as the HoverMatt with sling straps to be used with a patient lift system.
Designed specifically for ear to sternal notch positioning, the AirWedge® Adjustable Positioning Device includes a dual chamber allowing caregivers to easily position the patient’s head and chest separately eliminating the need for towels and blankets.
