Frequently asked questions about patient turners
A patient turner, also known as a transfer aid or pivot disc, is a mobility assistive device designed to help caregivers safely assist individuals with limited mobility in turning or pivoting while transferring between surfaces. The turner is placed on the floor or bed, and the user stands or sits on it. The caregiver can then assist in rotating the user to a desired position before transferring them to another surface, reducing the risk of strain or injury during the process.
Patient turners are particularly helpful for individuals with mobility challenges who have difficulty turning, shifting weight, or changing positions independently. This includes people with conditions like stroke, arthritis, postsurgery recovery, or weakness. Carers and healthcare professionals use patient turners to facilitate safer and more manageable transfers, promoting both user comfort and caregiver wellbeing.
When choosing a patient turner, consider factors like weight capacity, size, non slip surface, handles for control, ease of cleaning, user comfort, and healthcare professional input. These aspects ensure safe and effective transfers, benefiting both users and carers.
