The Hercules Patient Repositioner is a new product which is transforming the world of caregiving. Suitable for both professional and home use, this versatile system can transform patient repositioning. Here’s what you need to know.
How the Hercules Patient Repositioner Works
This system features a specialized sheet which attaches to a drive at the head of the bed. When a patient has slid down in bed, the touch of a button operates the drive, which pulls the sheet up along the bed, repositioning the patient and the sheet simultaneously.
There are five major benefits provided by this repositioning system.
1. Make Patient Repositioning Simple and Easy
Operating the Hercules Patient Repositioner is as simple as the push of a button. Press the button to engage the drive, and the system does all of the work for you. There’s absolutely no manual labor involved in the repositioning.
2. Maximize Caregiver Capacity
This system makes repositioning fast and easy. The process takes less than 10 seconds and leaves caregivers free to accomplish other tasks with the extra time. Patient repositioning is no longer a dreaded task, and instead becomes a simple part of caregiving.
3. Reduce Risk of Injury to Caregiver and Patient
Any time that a caregiver must move or reposition a patient, there is the potential of injury to both the caregiver and patient. The Hercules Patient Repositioner helps to eliminate that risk. This system repositions the patient without requiring any physical effort on the caregiver’s part. And because the movement is completed by smoothly sliding a sheet up the bed, the jostling and physical risk for the patient is removed, as well.
4. Improve Patient Comfort and Dignity
Until now, being repositioned in bed could be awkward and embarrassing for patients. This system makes repositioning a subtler event. This smooth-moving transfer is more comfortable for patients than being lifted up and shifted by hand.
5. Allow Single Caregivers to Provide Better Care
Repositioning a patient is generally a two-caregiver job. However, the Hercules Patient Repositioner allows for a solo caregiver to safely and effectively reposition a patient. This means that your caregivers can get more accomplished without having to wait for someone to be able to assist them. And if you are caring for a loved one in your home, you can safely reposition them even when you’re home alone.
