Manual Handling Products

When moving and handling patients who are elderly or disabled, it is essential that it is carried out in a manner which is as safe and comfortable as possible, for both the carer and the patient. The UK Health and Safety Executive website states that poor moving and handling practise can lead to back pain and musculoskeletal disorders for the carer, accidents injuring either party and a discomfort and lack of dignity for the patient.

Moving and Handling Equipment

Genie Care’s patient moving and handling equipment can help minimise these risks. Using a number of innovative devices, we make it possible to move and turn bed-bound patients quickly and comfortably, often without a need for a carer to even be present. More than 50% of manual handling injuries in health and social care involve the moving and handling of patients, but the introduction of proper moving handling equipment can eliminate the need for this potentially dangerous process.

Moving and Handling Products

The effectiveness of moving and handling products has been proven time and time again. In a study conducted from 2003 to 2005, a Care Trust in South Wales reduced manual handling incidents by 75% by implementing moving and handling equipment and training. This equipment has also been proven to reduce pressure ulcers; an uncomfortable skin infliction which is common amongst patients who are confined to their bed for extended periods of time. Not only this, but proper moving handling equipment can save you money too – one Primary Care Trust in England saved £90,000 in one year, just from purchasing one of our ToTo patient turning devices.
