The Guldmann Twin Patient Turner is an inexpensive yet valuable aid for turning immobile patients in bed. It works on a similar principle to the standard Guldmann Patient Turner which is inserted by simply sliding the turner underneath the patient. Using the unique design this requires minimal effort. Once under the patient, the turner is then connected to the bedframe on the far side of the patient using the strong velcro straps.
The Patient Turner is then attached to a ceiling or mobile hoist and used to to gently roll the patient in bed. Throughout the manouvre the patient remains supported leaving the carers free to focus on the patient, without having to manually support the patient.
Removing the patient turner is just as simple. Once the manoeuvre has been completed, the strap can be removed from the bedframe. The patient turner is folded underneath itself (to avoid any shear against the skin of the patient), and pulled out from beneath the patient.
In addition to being used for rolling in bed, the twin turner can also be used for applying and retrieveing slings, click on the videos below for further details.
Aiding single handed care
The twin patient turner is a fantastic aid to single carer care packages. One carer can apply the turner, and once the patient has been turned, they are supported in the turner enabling the carer to change pads, apply a sling or change the bedsheet.
Easy to use, clean and maintain
The twin turner is constructed from highly durable polyester woven fabric, and can be washed at up to 80°c to avoid cross infection risks. It features a woven label that will not wear out, and the straps are hard wearing for longevity. The unique polyester fabric has low friction properties, acting in the same way as a slide sheet.
Double or single version available
For situations where patients have to be rolled both sides in bed, we also have the double patient turner. Once underneath a patient, it can be used to roll both ways, reducing manual handling. For more information on the double turner, please click here.
Options: Patient specific version also available.
