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.

  • Includes 5 additional full body underpads
  • 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.

    Prevalon® Turn and Position System 2.0 w/ 5 additional full body underpads

    <p>I am a caregiver for a person who is unable to move without assistance. I was trained to use a pull sheet and a pad for tuning and pulling up in bed. The Turn and Position System has changed the patients life as well as mine. The easy grip handles make for easy moving. The material slides on a sheet so easily. The pads keep the patient cool and dry. I highly recommend this product. The wedges make it easy to shift body pressure and prevent or treat skin breakdown.</p>

    <p>This system is perfect for the in-home caregiver. I saw it used in the hospital ER and researched and found I could purchase it for home use. It is great for keeping the homebound patient turned and comfortable.</p>


    Very Useful Item for Home Care

    <p>We are using the Prevalon turning system for our 90-year-old mom. She is bedridden & has no fat over her sacrum. She often complains that her derriere is sore, and of course bed sores are a concern as well. </p><p>The wedges that come with the system are too long to accomplish the sacral off-loading illustrated in the video, as she is a very small person at under 5 feet tall. But they're still very useful; we tuck them underneath her on a "whatever works" basis, and they do provide some comfort. The wedge that goes under the thighs seems to keep her from sliding down in the bed as quickly when the head is elevated. </p><p>The Prevalon glide sheet makes it easy for one person to slide the wedges (as well as plain old pillows) underneath her without log-rolling her. (A bonus, as she is very independent, even with dementia, and emphatically objects to being handled unless it's on her own terms.) I am not as strong as I once was. Nevertheless, once the glide sheet is properly positioned under her, I am able to use it to position her in the bed by myself. I do have to have help re-positioning the glide sheet every 24-36 hours. It is not anchored to the bed, and the same friction-free properties that make it such a great tool also make it susceptible to sliding down and around on the bed. A stronger person caring for a patient who was able to assist a bit, possibly by holding onto the bed rail after being rolled up on their side, might be able to re-position the sheet on their own. (Though I know that the manufacturer does not recommend that for safety reasons.) </p><p>The Depends underwear that Mom wore for years is now uncomfortable, so she is going completely "commando". We use organic cotton baby crib pads under her bottom (from Amazon) and tuck a Tena pad between her legs. This makes her more comfortable, and also extends the life of the Prevalon climate-controlled pads that are used between the patient and the glide sheet.</p><p>This system has made caregiving easier and more tolerable for both us and our mom.</p>
