We recently evaluated the etac Turner Pro which can be found on www.molifthoistsandparts.co.uk and found it to be a very useful, simple piece of equipment. Anyone needing assistance to stand willl find this lightweight standaid easy to use.
Once setup for the user, it does not need any further configuring. The Turner Pro easily wheels along flat surfaces and light enough to lift into the car. As you can see in the video, it easily fits into the back of a Mini!!!
Whether you're needing it at home or to get in and out of the car; the Turner Pro is so handy. OK, it's lightweight but anyone can use it up to 200kg / 31st !!!
Furthermore, the etac Turner Pro is very reasonably price at £295 RRP.
etac Turner Pro Technical
Etac Turner PRO is a portable patient turn aid with a functional design that offers safe patient turning with standing support.
This turn aid enables a good posture and minimises the risk of injury for the carer when transferring, moreover, it encourages natural standing and sitting movement for the user. The only adjustment necessary is the height of the leg support and the handle.
Thereafter, the transfer can be performed safely whilst the caregiver and user can maintain eye contact and communication. 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. Etac Turner PRO is easy to transport due to its low weight of only 7,5 kg, furthermore it is compact and easy to grip.
