closer look at the newly released Prevalon
and Position System 2.0
part of your daily caregiving routine includes boosting and repositioning
someone, then we have just the thing for you—the Prevalon™ Turn and Position System 2.0
1, used by nurses since
2011. Now it’s available to consumers.
Thanks to an ergonomic design, it saves your back by minimizing
strain, a common problem when repositioning someone in bed.
how it works.
The person in bed lies on top of a glide sheet, while two body wedges are
placed underneath. Because the wedges position the body at an appropriate angle—it
naturally relieves pressure to the sacrum, which is located at the base of the
spine. Because the sacrum is at
increased risk for bed sores, continually moving and repositioning a bedbound
individual is critical to their care needs.
The built-in handles on the glide sheet make it practically
effortless for the caregiver to slide someone onto their side and reposition
their body. The clever design and body
wedges help guide the body into the desired position.
Plus, a Microclimate body pad that’s placed underneath the
individual easily absorbs body moisture. And, for people with incontinence
2, where there is loss of bladder
or bowel control, the Microclimate body pad absorbs bodily fluids that often
leak onto bed linens.
The Turn and Position System accommodates people up to 350
pounds. We hope you will consider giving
it a try and let us know what you think.
We’re pretty sure you’re going to love it.
