To To: How Does the Patient Turning Device Work?

Posted on by admin

Caring for patients with severe mobility issues can be time consuming but it is necessary to provide adequate pressure care to ensure that patients do not develop pressure sores. Unfortunately, manual turning can be difficult for both patients and carers due to the time it takes, the frequency of the turning and the risks involved.

Here at Genie Care we have developed a revolutionary patient turning device that eliminates the need for manual turning; this innovative development can guarantee that patients receive the necessary care as the issue of human error is no longer present.

Gentle Turning through Innovative Technology

The way in which the To-To operates is presented in this diagram and, as you can see, the programmable device offers a simple yet effective turning system.

The device can be programmed to turn the patient as frequently as necessary from 15 minutes to 2 hours throughout the day and night.

One of the most advantageous aspects of using this device, of course, is that the patient can be turned throughout the night without being disturbed. The patient receives both a full night’s sleep and the necessary pressure care; something that is simply not possible with manual turning.

Benefits for Both Carers and Patients

At Genie Care our aim is to develop new equipment that offers benefits for both carers and patients. The To-To is a prime example of this.

–    Carers spend less time completing manual turning and can use this additional time to provide a higher quality of care.
–    Carers are not put at risk of physical harm; a risk that is present during the manual turning process.
–    Patients no longer have to cope with the discomfort or embarrassment that can be experienced during manual turning.
–    Similarly to carers, the patients are also not put at risk of physical harm.
–    Patients are guaranteed to receive the necessary pressure care that they require.

Patient Turning Device Revolutionising Pressure Care

Posted on by admin

Bedridden patients and those suffering with severe mobility problems require consistent and regular pressure care to reduce the risk of pressure sores and ulcers developing. If you’re a nurse, carer or loved one caring for a bedridden friend or relative, you’ll understand how painful and persistently uncomfortable pressure sores can be.

Here at Genie Care we are passionate about improving the quality of care available for bedridden patients and as a result, we have developed our revolutionary patient turning device, the ToTo.

How Does the ToTo Work?

The ToTo is designed to gently turn the patient at regular intervals throughout both the day and the night.

Each turn is very gentle to ensure that the patient is not disturbed during the night and experiences no discomfort in the day; as well as this, the frequency of the turn can be varied from 15 minhtues to 2 hours.  While manual turning achieves the required result, patients are continuously disturbed and will rarely receive a full, peaceful night’s sleep.

At Genie Care we understand how important it is for patients to receive regular turning and that through human error or understaffing, manual turning can be missed. The ToTo, however, can be programmed to turn every two hours.

Nurses or carers have additional free time to complete other important tasks, while patients are guaranteed to receive the necessary care.

The ToTo will fits to any bed underneath the mattress which makes it ideal for use in a home or hospital setting.

What Other Equipment Is Available?

As well as our patient turning device, we have also developed and manufactured a range of innovative equipment for bedridden patients including:

–    WaterGenie
–    SafeSides
–    SleepLow

If you would like more information about our equipment then please feel free to browse our website or contact us directly on 01903 733 377; member of our friendly and experienced team will be happy to help you with any of your questions or queries.

To-To: Improve Quality Of Life and Quality of Care

Posted on by admin

Pressure care is an essential part of many patients’ care routine if they suffer from severe mobility problems. Unfortunately, the process of manually turning patients can be dangerous for both the patient and the carer.

Here at Genie Care we have developed a revolutionary new patient turning device to ensure that you can provide your patients with the necessary care without sacrificing quality of care or the patients’ quality of life.

Your Quality of Care

You won’t need to be told how busy a care home, nursing home or hospital can be and how this heightened workload can affect the quality of care your patients receive.

Bedridden patients, of course, require much more constant care and a significant aspect of this care is the frequent turning necessary to reduce the risk of pressure sores developing. Our patient turning device, the To-To, provides this essential care allowing your carers or nurses to spend their valuable time on other aspects of their role.

Your Patients’ Quality of Life

While the carers and nurses time is valuable, the level of care a patient receives directly impacts of their quality of life and regular turning, although essential, can be highly disruptive. Turning throughout the night can result in patients never getting a full night’s sleep and many patients will find manual turning embarrassing and uncomfortable.

The To-To eliminates the needs for manual turning and allows patients to have a full, peaceful and undisturbed night’s sleep while still receiving the essential pressure care.

If you would like more information about revolutionary patient turning device or our range of other patient care equipment then please our website; you’ll find a wealth of information about how can each piece can benefit both you and your patients.

Of course, if you have any questions about our equipment then please do not hesitate to get in touch with us directly; a member of our friendly team will be happy to help.

Reduce Manual Turning: Give your Nurses the Time They Need

Posted on by admin

Bed bound patients have always posed particular difficulties for carers and nurses as patients with severe mobility problems require a constant high level of care. One of the most important aspects of this care is patient turning to reduce the risk of the patient developing pressure sore or ulcers.

This essential care, however, is a time consuming process which can be both humiliating and dangerous for a patient. The process of manually turning a patient will often require 2 nurses or carers and this must be done regularly; of course, all of this will take up a lot of a nurse’s precious time.

Eliminate Manual Turning With the To-To

Here at Genie Care we have developed a revolutionary patient turning device which eliminates the need for manual turning and allows nurses to spend more time in other areas of their role to provide a higher quality of care.

The device turns a patient every 2 hours, completely independently. There is no need for the nurse to manually handle the patient in any way and the patient is guaranteed to receive their essential pressure care.

A patient will be gently turned by the near silent device throughout the day and night which means they can have a full, undisturbed night’s sleep without the discomfort or embarrassment of being manually turned.

This is only the tip of the iceberg of the To-To and there is a wealth of additional information available on our website; click here to go through to our To-To page or browse through the rest of the articles on our site.

To-To: Benefits for Both Carers and Patients

Posted on by admin

Here at Genie Care we specialise in the development and production of revolutionary pressure care equipment. The To-To patient turning device offers a range of invaluable benefits to carers and patients alike.

Nurses and Carers

When caring for bedridden patients nurses and carers will spend a lot of their precious time manually turning patients to reduce the risk of pressure sores developing. With the To-To the need for manual turning is eliminated which offers a range of valuable benefits:

–    Carers can spend more of their time offering essential care
–    Carers are not put at risk of injury as they would be when manually turning a patient
–    Lone carers are still able to provide effective pressure care
–    The To-To can be easily moved from bed to bed (including hospital beds)

As manually turning a patient requires multiple people, these benefits will not only affect one carer or nurse but many.

Patients

Although manual turning is, of course, in the interest of the patient’s health, many patients will find the process humiliating, uncomfortable and disruptive. Thanks to the To-To the patient can enjoy effective pressure care without suffering the issues involved with manual turning.

–    Patients that require turning at 2 hour intervals can enjoy a full night’s undisturbed sleep
–    The near silent and incredibly gentle turning system means that patients will not experience the disruption or discomfort that they would with manual turning
–    The patient is not put at risk of injury as they would be with manual turning
–    Patients that do not receive constant care or only have access to one carer will still receive the proper pressure care

Eliminate Manual Turning and Reduce Pressure Sore Risk

Posted on by admin

Patients with severely reduced mobility as well as bedridden patients will need perpetual turning throughout the day and night to ensure that pressure sores do not develop. Unfortunately, this means that a number of carers and nurses are using their precious time to manually turn patients whilst trying to avoid disturbing patients.

Here at Genie Care we have developed an innovative system to revolutionise the way that patients receive pressure care. Our To-To patient turning device will automatically turn patients every 2 hours without disturbing or distressing the patient and without the need for carers or nurses.

The features of the To-To include:

–    It is a unique lateral turning system
–    It fits onto any bed underneath the mattress to ensure comfort
–    It can be moved to wherever necessary
–    It can be used with alternating air mattress
–    It is compatible with profiling beds and will still operate when profiled
–    It is now used in a number of teaching hospitals

Built With the Patient in Mind

The To-To does not only eliminate the need for manual turning, it can actually improve a patient’s quality of life. With manual turning, the patient is disturbed throughout the night to be repositioned and many patients will find manual turning humiliating and distressing; the To-To on the other hand turns a patient incredibly gently over around 10 minutes.

The gentle and near silent turning allows the patient have an undisturbed night’s sleep while still receiving the necessary pressure care.

Here at Genie Care we are the experts when it comes to equipment to care for bedridden patients and those with significantly reduced mobility. Take a look at our range of products including the To-To, SafeSides, WaterGenie and SleepLow.

Whisper Quiet Turning Device: Get a Full Night’s Sleep

Posted on by admin

One of the most common problems for bedridden patients is the necessary turning to prevent the development of pressure sores and the subsequent difficulties that this presents. The necessary manual turning of patients by nurses or carers can be both dangerous and humiliating for the patients during the day and highly disruptive throughout the night.

Eliminating the Need for Manual Turning

Night time turning results in a severely disrupted night’s sleep for patients and the following lack of sleep can cause unnecessary distress and can even stunt a patient’s recovery. Here at Genie Care we specialise in pressure care equipment and we understand the need for regular patient turning and the problems that this can cause; however, thanks to our unique patient turning device, the To-To, these problems can be addressed.

A Revolution in Pressure Care

Our To-To turning device offers a revolutionary new method of turning patients throughout the day and night at regular intervals without disturbing the patient. The lifting system takes around 10 minutes to complete a turn and the gentle movement does not disturb the patient as manual turning would do.

As the device turns the patient it is incredibly quiet (<20db); many of our previous customers have been amazed at how quiet the device really is. The gentle movements and whisper quiet device allows patients to get a peaceful night’s sleep while receiving the turning needed to prevent pressure sores.

Here at Genie Care we are passionate about providing pressure care equipment and tools to make disabled and bedridden patients as comfortable and as safe as possible. Please browse our site for more information about the To-To and our other products such as the Water Genie and Sleep Low.

What Type of Bed Is Necessary?

The To-To can be fitted to any bed or hospital bed. There is no need to purchase a specialist bed and the To-To can be moved from bed to bed as necessary. The system is not bound to one bed once fitted.

How Is The To-To Fitted?

The lifting system is fitted between the mattress and mattress platform to slowly and gently turns without disturbing or distressing the patient.

How Loud Is the To-To?

This system is exceptionally quiet (<20db) as it is designed to provide the essential turning while offering patients a peaceful night’s sleep.
