ErgoNurse® is a bed repositioning system.
Research shows that NO manual lifting is safe, yet other equipment on the market requires lifting to place the patient on the sling. Therefore, the ErgoNurse uses sheets to move the patient. How strong are sheets?
The ErgoNurse was developed because the existing lifting equipment was designed primarily for transfers, yet 90% of caregiver lifting involves bed repositioning.
The ErgoNurse stays at the bedside for as long as that patient is total care. It is convenient to use, so much so that where it has been in use, pressure sores decreased to zero, since patients were being turned more often.
The company stands behind its products, and guarantees they will be safe and effective.
The Ergonurse has many advantages:
- One person operation
- No waiting for staff to help move the patient
- ErgoNurse makes turning patients fast as well as easy
- Smooth and comfortable, important for post-op and injured patients
- Turning can be done more often, especially with heavy patients.
