The Invacare Soft Tilt is a unique and innovative new system designed to automatically reposition the user, as well as support 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 bed’s existing profiling movements and mattress.
Automated pressure relief & re-positioning
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.
Single care giver working
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 potential back injury.
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.
Enhanced individual and care giver comfort
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 back injury, normally caused when moving and handling.
