Elevate Respiratory Patients
EasyShift makes it easy to frequently boost patients to maintain 30° elevation. This helps reduce aspiration and reflux for respiratory patients.
Reduce Risk of Skin Abrasions
For patients with sensitive or damaged skin, EasyShift reduces rapid shear forces during movement which can cause skin abrasions, especially on the coccyx and heels.
Save Time for Caregivers
To boost and turn a patient of size, gathering a lift team often takes 10 minutes, and the repositioning itself takes 3 minutes for 4 staff (12 minutes), for a total of 22 minutes.
With EasyShift, one caregiver can boost and turn a patient of size in 6 minutes, and there is no need to wait for a lift team. This saves up to 16 minutes per repositioning. At 12 repositionings per day and total labor cost of $40 per hour, this generates $40,000 in annual time value per EasyShift unit.
