BoosterEasy - Home Care Made Easier

 

Bed sheet advancing system that makes boosting the patient safe and easy without any assistance

 


 

This is the conventional way of boosting a patient:

The goal is to pull, not lift, the patient toward the head of the bed. The 2 people moving the patient should stand on opposite sides of the bed.
 
To pull the person up both people should:

- Grab the slide sheet or draw sheet at the patients upper back and hips on the side of the bed closest to you.

- Put one foot forward as you prepare to move the patient. Put your weight on your back leg.

- On the count of three, move the patient by shifting your weight to your front leg and pulling the sheet toward the head of the bed.

- You may need to do this more than once to get the person in the right position.

 


 
Traditional concerns with moving a patient in bed:

- You must move or pull someone up in bed the right way to avoid injuring the patient's shoulders and skin. Using the right method will also help protect your back.

- It takes at least 2 people to safely move a patient up in bed.

- Friction from rubbing can scrape or tear the person's skin. Common areas at risk for friction are the shoulders, back, buttocks, elbows, and heels.

- Never move patients up by grabbing them under their arms and pulling. This can injure their shoulders.

 


 
With BoosterEasy, simply turning the crank handle moves the patient towards the head of the bed eliminating the back strain caregivers often suffer from. And only requires one caregiver!
