How Does the ReTurn 7500i Make My Job As a Carer Easier?
The ReTurn 7500i makes your job easier as a carer because it enables safe and easy transfers, and eliminates the need for heavy lifting. The bars on the top of the 7500i enable the patient to use their own strength to safely lift themselves, while you provide support through stabilising and positioning the patient. Once the patient is standing and locked in place, you can move the patient from A to B by pulling on the same top bars that the patient used to pull themselves up.
How Easy to Use Is the ReTurn 7500i Aid?
The ReTurn 7500i is easy to use. As the video below demonstrates, the ReTurn 7500i works by simply locking the patient in place and pushing or pulling them from place to place. It's designed to be easy to use and reduce the difficulties that may usually come into play because of heavy transfer.
How Much Movement Does the 7500i Enable for the Patient?
The ReTurn 7500i is intended for short transfers only, meaning that it isn't recommended for transfers that are further than the distance between a bed and toilet. However, wheels on the bottom of the device and a simple patient standing platform make the device incredibly easy to manoeuvre, suitable for rolls, turns and pivots even in smaller spaces. The device can be positioned incredibly close to the patient, helping to reduce the risk of injury during transfer.
How Is the 7500i Suitable as a Patient Transfer Aid?
The ReTurn 7500i has two uses. The first is use as a transfer aid, which can be facilitated by having the patient lock their feet into place before the carer can pull and push them from A to B. This helps to keep the patient in their own home for longer as it reduces the need for more specialist care.
How Is the 7500i Suitable as a Rehabilitation Device?
The second use from the ReTurn 7500i is for it to be used a rehabilitation device. It can be used to help a patient stand up, using core muscles in their arms, core and legs. This can help to return strength to areas that have been weakened because of injury or illness, making it one step in the journey to full recovery.
