The Invacare Soft Tilt is a unique and innovative in-bed system designed to automatically reposition patients for prevention and or treatment of pressure injury/ulcers, as well as to support families and carers with daily moving and handling tasks, such as sling application and transfers into and out of bed.
The Soft Tilt mechanism is almost silent and fits to a standard SB755 community profiling bed (others coming soon).
The soft tilt allows the use of standard bed linen - unlike other turning beds that require a roll or spool of bedlineb to be sent to the cleaners!
The Invacare Soft Tilt pressure care system is available for rental hire for a minimum of two weeks.
Compatible with Invacare's SB755 heavy-duty community profiling, high specification community nursing bed.
The Soft Tilt can be automatically programmed to turn the client gently from side to side whilst in bed and can be used day or night to provide pressure redistribution.
The Soft Tilt can also be manually operated for moving and handling tasks.
The Invacare Soft Tilt is a unique and innovative new system designed to automatically reposition patients, as well as supporting care staff with daily moving and handling procedures. The Soft Tilt can be easily installed on to the Invacare SB® 755 mattress platform and will work in conjunction with the beds existing profiling movements and mattress.
The Soft Tilt can be programmed to automatically turn patients at various intervals and angles throughout the night; relieving pressure and preventing the development of pressure ulcers. When operating automatically, the wings will never elevate higher than 30° to ensure optimal safety and comfort whilst the patient is sleeping.
The Soft Tilt can be operated manually by a carer, making it ideal for moving and handling within single carer working environments. The easy to use hand control allows the carer to elevate the wings to up to 60°, giving full access for sling application, glide sheets and personal care. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with the beds profiling movements, the Soft Tilt allows the carer to safely transfer the patient in and out of bed - into a standing position - with minimal effort, protecting the carer from a potential back injury.
Thanks to the silent, gentle and automated movements of the Soft Tilt, patients can enjoy a more peaceful, undisturbed sleep. Moreover, carers benefit from a more comfortable working environment and avoid the risk of a back injury, normally caused when moving and handling.
Works in combination with the beds profiling movements to ensure comfortable positioning of the patient as well as supporting with transfers.
When operating aut omatically, the secondary wing will elevate slightly to offer additional support and comfort for the patient. Once the patient reaches the desired position, the secondary wing will return to a horizontal position.
When operated manually with the handset, the wings can be elevated to 60° for moving and handling purposes, such as personal care and sling application.
The easy to use control box comes with one preset program (auto) and two customisable programs to suit individual user requirements. Once programmed, automated movements can be activated at the touch of a button
Soft Tilt can be programmed to turn the patient gently from side to side when both wings are elevated.
Clear and easy to use handset for manual use.
Blue cover with elastic straps helps keep the mattress in place. Machine washable up to 80 degrees.
