Purpose

With a RotoBed®Free, people who have difficulty getting in and out of bed, are now able to do so with no physical effort. Ensures better work postures for caregivers.

Target group

Impact for citizen

Some persons will now be able to get in and out of bed without help. Others will go from 2 to 1 caregiver.
A RotoBed® leads to less pain, more mobility, more dignity and more freedom for the user.

The risk of bedsores is reduced thanks to less twisting and pulling of the skin both at entry and exit, and in trying to find a good body position. The bed prevents falls, and people with osteoporosis have less pain and a lower risk of fractures thanks to fewer manipulations.

Patients that suffer from chronic diseases such as Parkinson’s and arthritis - have a limited amount of energy and using it all on getting out of bed would be a shame. Most users are elderly, and their spouses often lack the necessary physical strength to help out. With a fully automatic RotoBed® the couple gets a better opportunity to be husband and wife instead of disabled patient and helper. That way the spouses are also very pleased with the bed.

Impact for staff

A RotoBed® offers better work postures and reduces workloads for caregivers. Usually, the user goes from 2 to 1 helper or from 1 to none, saving both time and money. Staff will often meet happier users thanks to less pain and higher quality of life. Being 1 instead of 2 users often lead to a closer, more direct contact between helper and user.

Economic impact

Several welfare technology surveys have shown that a RotoBed® enhances the user’s level of mobility and quality of life, reduces workloads for staff and saves time / money. (see the above point)
