PR1000™/PR8000™ – Pivot Rotation
Getting in and out of bed just got a lot safer…
Caring for a loved one in the home can be a difficult task. Often times illnesses or injuries can leave your loved one with limited strength and mobility. We receive calls from spouses, family members, and friends who are trying to provide care to keep their loved one at home.
We designed this specialized medical bed to help address some of the challenges faced at home:
• Safely entering and exiting the bed – with a built-in stand assist (hi/low) and a full chair seating option, users have a safe and effective way to enter and exit the bed. Caregivers are also protected by not subjecting themselves to pulling/lifting their loved one up and out of bed in an unsafe manner leading to a potential back injury.
• Creating independence and mobility – using the built-in stand assist can help patients regain mobility while providing them the confidence to be more independent in the home.
• Enhancing comfort – whether experiencing a full chair seated position or the joys of a wider bed (42”) users will find enhanced comfort over typical beds offered in the home. From a seated position using the pivot mechanism, the user has access to watch TV, read a book, or chat with family members. Having access to pivot to see the entire room, the user has a much better experience in bed.
• Dignity – not having to rely on multiple caregivers to lift/transfer will help the user not feel like a burden and improve their quality of life
• Reduced Cost – potentially reduce the need for additional equipment (patient lift, lift chair), additional caregivers (one caregiver can operate the bed for transfers), or placing your loved one in a nursing home (private pay).
Helping a loved one transfer in and out of bed can be done in three simple steps:
- Raise the head section
- Separate and lower the leg section
- Grab the turn (pivot) handle and easily slide the bed to a side to allow your loved one the ability to sit in a full chair position and exit/enter the bed safely
