Essential Products for Aged Care Facilities

Aged care facilities face daily challenges in the routine care of disabled and elderly patients who require assistance with getting up, walking around, and adjusting their position when lying down. To meet these challenges, many newer products have been developed that can be put to use immediately, to reduce the risk of injuries sustained by carers as well as provide a more comfortable day-to-day living experience for patients.

While not all healthcare organisations have exactly similar needs for accessible mobility furniture and accessories, there are a few ‘essential’ products that are perfectly suited for aged care facilities in particular. 

The VENDLET Patient Positioning System

For bedridden patients who need assistance turning themselves, the full line of patient positioning devices from HLS Healthcare can serve multiple purposes. There are positioning cushions, handles, bedding accessories, and complete, integrated systems like the Vendlet V5+, an electronic turning sheet. Easy to clean and even easier to operate, the Vendlet patient positioning line of products has a solution for virtually any bedridden patient positioning challenge.

Simple enough for use with just one caregiver, the Vendlet V5 turning aid can be used to turn a patient into supine, lateral, and prone positions, reposition a patient after they have slipped, or apply slings, and change incontinence products.

As one of the most comfortable and reliable solutions on the market, the Vendlet V5 gives service users a more consistent and calm turning experience, while caregivers can benefit from a simple and effective procedure.

The Vendlet Patient Positioning System allows carers to physically rotate a patient while they are laying on their bed, reducing the risk of injury due to lifting. When used as part of a comprehensive approach to patient positioning, the Vendlet patient positioning system can offer significant improvements in patient comfort and efficiency of care.

Guldmann Ceiling Hoists

ceiling hoist is a professional-grade, movable hoist that uses ceiling tracks to relocate patients with mobility issues. Single-track systems are also available, giving aged care facilities more control over where they can easily move patients without presenting a lifting injury risk to carers. By installing a single-track Guldmann Ceiling hoist that travels from the bed to the bathroom, for example, a patient can be more easily transported within their living area, resulting in more efficient care.

In the days that came before mobility hoists, helping disabled and elderly people to complete their daily routines was a challenging task. For those with mobility issues, something as simple as getting in and out of the bath, bed, or car, would require physical assistance of a dedicated care provider. Not only was this dangerous for all people involved, but the privacy of the affected individual was often compromised.

Which is why at HLS Healthcare we have been supplying and installing Guldmann Ceiling Hoists and track systems since 2000, making us one of the most experienced suppliers of ceiling hoist systems in Australia.

Our hoists can be used almost anywhere to improve accessibility, they allow people to be moved quickly and most importantly safely for both the patient and carer, they ensure that care providers don’t have to take on dangerous processes to help the individual they’re assisting move.

HLS Healthcare is proud to represent Guldmann and its full line of ceiling hoist systems. These easy-to-use, fully integrated hoisting solutions are perfect for lifting, relocating, and weighing patients who have mobility issues. Key features and benefits of the many customisable ceiling hoist configurations include:

  • Adjustable, custom-sized harnesses for patients of most sizes
  • Simple, straightforward hoist operation makes for easy use for carers and attendants
  • The integrated scale allows for weighing of patients without requiring them to stand or sit
  • The built-to-order tracking system is durable and reliable

Adding a quality ceiling hoist will go a long way to help protect carers as well as give patients more comfortable throughout their day.

Mobile Hoists

Mobile hoist solutions from Guldmann offer a great combination of convenience, portability, and ease-of-use for patients who need assistance to move from a chair or bed. These mobile lifters are easy to relocate without needing to be structurally removed from the floor or wall. This is accomplished with precision bearing-assisted wheels as part of the overall hoist construction.

Mobile hoists are fantastic for managed care organisations that need hoist assistance with patients in multiple areas of their facility. Mobility means better care provided to more patients in less time.

Elsi Smart Floor System

The Elsi Smart Floor System from HLS Healthcare is a fully integrated flooring solution that uses pressure-sensitive panels to detect the location and status of elderly or disabled persons. The system is connected to an alert and notification system that keeps carers informed regarding the exact location and activity logs for all patients, resulting in shorter fall response times, more efficient use of carer time and resources.

The Elsi Smart Floor Monitoring System is the only system available on the market that’s proven to help reduce falls, ensure safety in care environments, and support cost-savings for customers. The system provides security and wellbeing according to the challenges and requirements of the user.

The Elsi Smart Floor operating system tracks the position and movement of human bodies relevant to their position on the floor. The installation is simple, and maintenance is easy, making it perfect for any home or care environment. Various notifications and alarms can be activated in the impeccable Elsi Smart Floor Monitoring system user interface.

The installation of the Elsi® Smart Floor is similar to the installation of traditional linoleum carpets, i.e., it is installed in the same way as the traditional top floor carpets are installed. It is easily and quickly laid, and is fully protected by the top floor carpet, giving it a long lifetime.

Various alarm and notifications can be activated in the unique Elsi® UI (User Interface), using different criteria: nurses, individual residents and special times during 24 hours, and are also relayed to Smart Phones or DECT Phones.

Wheelchair Lifting Platforms

Even the most advanced wheelchairs with super-lightweight construction can still be heavy and cumbersome. For aged and disabled persons who must remain in a wheelchair but still need to be lifted from one elevation to another, wheelchair lifting platforms from HLS Healthcare can help.

These systems are ‘stepless’ and offer a safe, seamless transition from the platform to either opposing surfaces. These lifting platforms also feature retention guards that keep the wheelchair from rolling in any direction from the platform while it is in use.

One of the major benefit we find when people are selecting a wheel chair lifting platform in the space allowance. Our wheel chair lifting platforms are the perfect alternative to wheel chair ramps when space is not abundant.

Ultimately, platform lifts can be one of the most cost-efficient and convenient ways to install an option for people with limited mobility to be able to move between a first, and second floor. Platform lifts are a great way to ensure that wheelchair and members of the community with limited mobility are able to reach their destination with simplicity and dignity.

With Guldmann Stepless Wheelchair Lifting Platforms you can choose from a wide variety of options depending on the circumstances required.

We have the following alternatives to make your life easier:

With the right product selection, correct configuration, customer support and training, the patient mobility products available from HLS Healthcare can truly transform the day-to-day operation of aged care facilities.
