Yesterday I swapped my etac patient turner for a new one, as it was rusty and damaging my wet room floor. I use it for transfers from wheelie to commode. I hoist for other transfers, but do want to keep some leg strength.
This new turner has a slightly different knee pad area. A bit difficult to describe, but i`ll try.
Instead of the 2 separate knee pads, it has a one piece thicker pad.
With the old one, i had difficulty keeping my knees straight and felt scared of falling all the time.
The new one makes my legs straighten more quickly and I feel so much safer.
So that has boosted my confidence. My bowels are working well again, got a bit more control of my diet again…so yeh, feeling best I have for a few weeks. Nice!
