The U–Turner™ by Ergomatrix, Inc.


About

Protect caregivers from injury and reduce the risk of bedsores with the u–turner™ ergonomic patient turning device from ErgoMatrix, Inc.

The award winning u–turner™ empowers one caregiver to safely and comfortably turn a patient and maintain their side–lying position.

Unique design allows one caregiver to provide total care, such as repositioning, assessing skin, cleaning, wound care and changing linens with the patient in the bed.

Reduce the risk for costly and painful bedsores by using the u–turner™ to maintain patient in an elevated position.

The patent-pending design of the u–turner™ simulates the log roll technique, a safer method for turning patients which normally requires two or more caregivers turn a patient in order to stabilize their spine.

"This product allows me to safely turn my mom enough so she is comfortable and I can take care of cleansing her. It allows me to do this on my own and not have to wait for someone to help me."

Wife at home in Hospice Care and is a large Gal and I turn her at times to clean Her, Change sheets. I am 69 years old and have had a very hard time doing these jobs. And then I found the U-Turner. It has taken a job that was killing me and made my life a joy to do this for Her. I watched the video over and over and when it came time to use it I was a pro. Worth a million. Good people to deal with. From Anthony in PA
