The Etac Patient Turner is a transfer aid which assists in moving the individual from one seated position to another, often from a chair to a wheelchair.
The turner can also be used to transfer from a sitting to a standing position.
It is typically used for people who retain moderate strength in their legs and arms.
It is designed to reduce strain on the carer and reduce the number of necessary assistants. All the while, the caregiver and user can maintain eye contact and communication.
This patient transfer aid has a contoured stem and rotates on its base, supporting the individual, improving balance and reducing the amount of body twisting.
The orange handle provides a strong, high contrasting colour which can help users with impaired vision or dementia. The small footplate makes it the perfect choice of transfer aid when transferring in tight spaces.
This is the latest version, the Etac Turner Pro. It is compact and easy to grip and due to its low weight of only 7.5 kg it is easy to transport.
The wheels run smoothly on most surfaces including carpets.
