The Ekamove, an automated patient positioning system, is designed to gently and quietly turn patients without the intervention of a healthcare professional. The sensor controlled system is placed underneath a mattress and as the air chamber system slowly inflates, it laterally lifts the person lying on it.
There are clear benefits for both a patient and NHS caregiver when using the Ekamove. The patients, for example, will benefit greatly from the real pressure relief and the healing of any pressure wounds. The non-intrusive system is incredibly quiet, allowing them to sleep soundly without any intervention or manual handling from nursing staff.
For healthcare professionals, the Ekamove limits the need for any manual handling and therefore reduces the risk of injury from lifting.
It also offers a wide range of flexible turning options, giving care professionals full control over patient care. These flexible options are then backed up by a system which tracks all patient turning data on a memory card, saving time for the care team as once it is programmed everything is automated.
The Ekamove is designed for those who suffer from a disability or illness that means they have to spend long periods of time laying down, or for those who struggle to change their position when they are lying flat.
