The add-on is easy to use and meets to of the great demands in the health care system, pressure relief and help to manual transfers. Two demands which have not yet been integrated in the same assistive aid. It also works very well with the existing assistive aids used in the industry. The add-on is comfortable and safe for the citizen, but also a real help for the personnel.
The citizen experiences greater satisfaction and the possibility of staying more active compared to lying on other types of pressure relieving mattresses. The add-on is easy to fit in into the original furniture of the home. Furthermore, it can also help preventing more serious diseases. The constant change of positions not only prevents pressure ulcers, but also helps preventing pneumonia.
Charlotte Skjoldman, Team manager at Day center – CFD Egebækhus, Nærum:
“Our personnel have sighed for similar aids for several years. Aids, which, like SPB, can work together with the existing aids that we are happy with, for instance the mattresses we already have, spilerdug (?) and the use of the bed’s functions.”
“The benefit of the bed is that there is a lesser need for transfers and touching of the citizen in a nursing situation than before. This means that the citizen reacts in a less powerful way, thereby giving him or her a better start to the day and ensuring a better work environment for the personnel.”
Gitte Simmel Jacobsen, Ergotherapist and Work environment representative – Grønbjerghjemmet Center Vest, Spjald:
“Earlier, we experienced that the citizen felt unsafe and reacted in a powerful manner when the personnel had to turn him around in the middle of the night, thereby waking him up.”
“Now, with the automatic night program, which moves the citizen form side to side with very slow and quiet movements, the nights have become much calmer. It is genius. It both creates a sense of security for the citizen and creates a better work environment for the personnel.”
