What Is a Patient Turning System?

A patient turning aid is an assistive device that allows for gentle turning or repositioning of a patient or client in bed, while not straining healthcare staff, nurses, caregivers or loved ones assisting the moving and handling of the patient. The patient turning system even makes it possible for some patients to turn themselves, increasing independence and dignity.

The patient turning aid is used in place of positioning bed pads, transfer boards or other mobility aids.

Improve Workplace Health and Safety in Healthcare

The patient turning aid helps ensure safety for both the client and the helper whether being a healthcare professional or family member.

This assistive device eliminates the need for lifting, pushing, and pulling on the client when turning them. This creates sustainable work health and safety for staff as it reduces the risks of injuries to the neck, shoulders, arms, and back, often associated with moving and handling.

Dignified and Independent Living

Clients using the transfer aid on their own can obtain a more independent life, where they can manage some situations requiring turning or repositioning themselves, such as turning during the night. This means that the client will have fewer disturbances through the night, as they can adjust their position as needed without having to wait for help from others. As such the individuals functioning and independence is improved, thereby promoting their well-being.

Whether a client can use the system on their own depends on an individual assessment of their cognitive and physical capabilities.

Target Group

The turning aid provides dignified care for people with disabilities, elderly people, and people with health conditions such as Alzheimer’s Disease, ALS, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy, Parkinson’s Disease, and more.

When using this patient transfer equipment, the client will experience more dignified and gentle care as any pushing or pulling is eliminated from the moving and handling process.

The patient transfer aid can be used in any setting such as the client’s own home, in hospitals, care homes or nursing homes.

Simple and Safe Resident Positioning

Carefully and comfortably moving residents isn’t always easy

With the VENDLET you can position residents easily without needing multiple carers to manually move a resident and risk personal injury.

The VENDLET uses two motorised roller bars operated by a handset. The VENDLET system gives professionals complete control over the repositioning of a resident, without lifting or adjusting the individual’s position manually. When one roller bar turns, it winds the slide sheet in, which initiates a highly controlled and comfortable turning motion. Carers can then use their free hand to guide the positioning of the resident.

Resident Turning Device

Allow carers to work with residents on a one-to-one basis

By offering carers a simple resident turning device to safely move residents, the VENDLET system ensures that carers can work on a one-to-one basis with clients.

The VENDLET is fitted with an actuator at each end, which allows for the sides to be raised and lowered. The VENDLET can be individually adjusted to suit most mattresses or beds.

Frequently Asked Questions

HLS Healthcare answers common queries about the VENDLET

What is the VENDLET system?

The VENDLET is an intuitive positioning system is an intuitive device that requires very little manual input from a carer. The turning system is made up of two bars with automated motors. When the bars move, they pull a sheet carefully from one side to another, adjusting the position of a resident without needing to rely on the physical strength of the carer.

This effective moving and handling tool can assist with:

  • Preparing a resident for hoisting
  • Moving an individual for hygiene-based activities like washing and cleaning
  • Adjusting a residents position for wound management and examinations
  • Moving residents from one side of the bed to another
  • Preventing the formation of ulcers and pressure sores
  • Transferring a resident from one bed to another, or from a bed to a chair
What is the VENDLET used for?

The VENDLET is used when moving a resident in a variety of situations, such as:

  • Hygiene procedures
  • Medical examination
  • Positioning purposes
  • Pressure Ulcer prevention
  • Applying a sling
  • Applying bandage
  • Rotating sleeping positions
  • Sitting the resident up in the bed
  • Transferring the resident from one bed to another
  • Reducing carer injury and workplace injury claims
What are the advantages of using the VENDLET?

The VENDLET provides many advantages carers and residents, allowing both to experience greater comfort, independence, and dignity.

Work health and safety

When using the VENDLET, carers are spared the physical strain of lifting handling bedridden residents. The maximum capacity is up to 400 kilograms.

Resident comfort

Because VENDLET supports the entire body, find the process of moving more comfortable and dignified.

Use of resources

The VENDLET carers, in most cases, can work alone with their residents. This simplifies planning daily care routines. The VENDLET results in fewer and simpler work procedures, allowing resources to be used elsewhere. This, in turn, reduces absenteeism due to work injuries and MSD.

Target group
  • Bedridden residents with few physiological and/or cognitive issues and palliative residents.
  • Bedridden residents who receive care and hygiene.
  • Residents at risk of pressure ulcers. The comfortable and steady transfer in the sheet minimises tissue damage and pressure ulcers.
  • Residents who have issues with space and direction awareness.
  • Bedridden bariatric residents weighing up to 400 kg (VENDLET V5S+)

Why is having the right resident positioning equipment so important?

Moving and handling is a common part of a carer’s role when looking after a bedridden resident. Residents who spend a lot of time in the same position, unable to move by themselves, need to be regularly repositioned for examination, hygiene, and to reduce the risk of sores and ulcers.

With a tool like the VENDLET automated positioning system, bedridden residents can maintain their independence, dignity, and comfort. It’s possible to move a resident within a matter of minutes, and there’s no need to call for a second carer to help.

A single carer can initiate the moving process at the push of a button. There’s no risk to the carer, and the resident doesn’t have to worry about an uncomfortable and awkward moving experience. Combined with other tools like ceiling and floor hoists, the VENDLET makes comfortable moving and handling for bedridden residents easier than ever.

How do you move a resident between beds?
  1. Double click the power button to activate.
  2. Press both the red and blue downward arrow buttons to lower the bars
  3. Use the bar on the side where the resident needs to be moved to tighten the turning sheet and shift the resident towards the other bed.
