Extra product information

Turner Pro is a sit-to-stand transfer aid that makes it easier for a carer to help a user to stand and transfer him/her to another sitting position. Users must be able to grip and pull up their own body weight, but still require support/help to stand up and be
turned. The purpose is to transfer a person from/to bed, chair, wheelchair or toilet. The Turner PRO is lightweight and easy to
move around. The Turner PRO should only be used indoor on flat surfaces.
It works by counterbalance and leverage.
The attendant carer controls how the user stands up, This may reduce the risk of falling and allows the attendant carer to work in an ergonomically correct manner.
The height of the handle and the knee supports will need adjusting for each user.

===
Clean on a regular basis. Clean surfaces with a damp cloth using an appropriate pH-neutral detergent. Do not use solvents
or strong liquids, this may damage surfaces on the Turner. For disinfection when needed; use isopropyl alcohol or similar. Avoid abrasive cleaning products. Remove hair and pile from the wheels and verify that the wheels rotates freely.
