WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT?
The Handi Soft Turn Pad is a turning pad used for helping someone getting into or out of a car. It can also be used to help Patients when getting in and out of a bed or a chair.
It can be used upside down, with the vinyl side up, if the person is incontinent. This will make it easier to wipe clean if required because it can be sprayed and wiped clean. It is very flexible and is made from two foam pads with a central swivel mechanism, and the two pads rotate on each other.
WHO IS THIS PRODUCT SUITABLE FOR?
The Handi Soft Turn Pad is suitable for people when swivelling or turning on a chair or bed.
BRIEF INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
Place the Handi Soft Turn Pad on the car seat with the webbing handles where the person’s hips will go when seated. The Pad will bend to the shape of the seat. The person can then turn themselves into the car to face the front. They may be able to help turning by leaning against the back of the seat, or use their arms to pull themselves around.
Alternatively, the Carer may use the webbing handles to turn, without touching people prone to pain if touched.
After the journey is over they can then turn themselves again to get out of the car.
An alternative turning pad to consider is the Car Seat Slide Pads (sold separately). This is often better than the Handi Soft Turn Pad because it does not use a swivel mechanism in the middle, which can sometimes buckle up.
WHAT IS THIS PRODUCT MADE FROM?
Foam, velour, vinyl, webbing.
