Patient Positioning Aids - The Ultimate Guide to the Vendlet V5+

For many patients or elderly people who are bedridden patient positioning aids are a necessity for their day to day life. For these individuals that require assistance with turning or repositioning while laying down, an integrated on-bed positioning system like the Vendlet V5+ is an excellent option. This unique positioning solution allows for carers to operate an easy-to-use motor that moves the sheet lying below the patient, making turning easier and quicker. These systems are easy to install, easy to operate, and the turning sheet itself can be simply removed and washed before being returned to service.

The VENDLET is life-altering equipment for patents and carers alike. This state of the art equipment allows the safe rotation of a bedridden person with little effort from one caregiver. Unlike any other product we have seen the VENDLET has a simple design, consisting of a slide sheet, a turning sheet, a hand control and two motorized bars mounted on each side of the bed. To use you simply press the hand control, the sheet is tightened around the bars, so the patient is moved or turned around.
