Prevalon® Turn and Position System 2.0


The Prevalon Turn and Position System 2.0 moves as one with the patient, preventing the Glide Sheet and M2 Microclimate Body Pad from riding up. This allows the system to stay under the patient at all times, providing continuous tailbone, or sacral offloading and minimizing the need for boosting.

  • Helps prevent tailbone, or sacral pressure ulcers by offloading the sacrum
  • Manages moisture due to incontinence, creating an optimal microclimate for the skin
  • Helps minimize friction and shear
  • Keeps patient positioned at the appropriate angle
  • Breathable to help control body heat
  • For patients up to 550 lbs.

    What is a pressure ulcer?

    Pressure ulcers, also known as bedsores, are damage to the skin and other tissues caused by unrelieved pressure.1 The risk for developing these sores is greater in folks who are immobile and incontinent.2 Developing a pressure ulcer can be dangerous and costly, making pressure ulcer prevention an important part of any care routine.

    What causes a tailbone, or sacral pressure ulcer?

    The sacrum, or tailbone, is the #1 area for pressure ulcer development.3 There are many risk factors for pressure ulcers, including reduced mobility or immobility, moisture, friction and shear, age, vascular disease, and level of consciousness.4

    How can I prevent a tailbone, or sacral pressure ulcer?

    While some of these risk factors, such as age, vascular disease, and level of consciousness are hard or impossible to control, pressure, moisture, friction and shear can be addressed with a positioning device that helps manage these four risk factors.

    The Prevalon Turn and Position System 2.0 stays under the patient to help reduce the risk of pressure ulcer development. The system helps to keep the sacrum off the surface of the mattress, also known as offloading. By offloading the sacrum, the Prevalon Turn and Position System 2.0 helps reduce pressure.

    The Glide Sheet helps to reduce friction by transferring the friction so that is exists between the Glide Sheet and the bed, rather than the bed and the skin. When the Anchor Wedges are placed, the system helps reduce shear by allowing the person and system to move as one. This results in the force is redistributed to protect the skin

    The Glide Sheet is also made from a breathable material, which helps manage moisture. The M2 Microclimate Body Pads contain 4 layers to pull moisture away from the patient's skin and trap it while still being breathable to help control heat.

    <p>I care for my husband (200 lbs) who has no use of his legs and little strength in his arms. This glide sheet is great for pulling him up in the bed when he slumps and moving him back and forth. It has handles all around so you can move it from any side, and it is strong enough to shift him from bed to gurney, etc. We use a disposable pad under his diaper so leaks don't soil the nylon sheet. It is awfully expensive, but I can't find anything else that is even close for design and toughness.</p>

    <p>The patient is a 4'10", 86 yr. old female, bed bound, appx. 100 lbs. The system is used on a 3-way adjustable home hospital bed. The bedding is a cotton/poly. blend. The System challenges for us are these: The nylon type mat material is very slippery and slides down the bed when the head of the bed is in the upright position. The lift wedges can slide out of position when the bed is flat. The patient has 6-8 diaper changes daily. With each change a new system mat is needed which becomes very expensive. Perhaps this system is better suited for a larger, heavier, patient requiring less mat changes.</p>

    <p>I am using this system at home for my husband. He is about 200 lbs and I can turn him, pull him up in bed by myself with this sheet under him. I received it from the hospital where it was being used on a trial basis. I like it very much and would recommend it to anyone who has a person to care for that is heavy, or in need of being positioned from side to side on a routine basis.</p>
