The Ekamove is an automated, sensor controlled patient positioning system for single handed care which can be programmed to meet the individual needs of the patient. It is designed to gently and quietly turn patients up to 30°, without the intervention of a healthcare professional.
The Ekamove air chamber is placed under a mattress and inflated to laterally lift the person lying on it. Operated via a control unit, you can select a separate positioning time for each step of the process and therefore give better protection to the affected areas of the patient’s body.
The turn angle and movement times on both the left and right sides can be personalised to suit the individual, making the Ekamove the most flexible patient turning product available.
Ideal for patients in pain, the Ekamove provides extensive pressure relief and accelerates the healing process.
Patients can sleep soundly without interruption from the extremely quiet system or manual handling by nursing staff.
The fully automated system reduces patient dependency on nurses or carers.
Using Ekamove With Dynamic Mattress
Ekamove patient turning system can be used with a dynamic (alternating) mattress if required. However, the measured degree of lateral turn may not be completely accurate when used with such mattresses due to the displacement of air cells during the alternating cycle. For example, if the Ekamove is set to perform a 30 degree lateral turn, the actual turn may be slightly more or slightly less than the value displayed on the pump unit. An individual risk assessment should be performed prior to using the Ekamove with a dynamic mattress.
