Getting In And Out Of A Wheelchair

Getting In And Out Of A Wheelchair

Getting in and out of a wheelchair is a difficult skill, especially for less mobile users or when transferring to different surface heights. Some wheelchair users can complete these transfers on their own. However, others may require assistance. 

At Breeze Mobility, we are passionate about helping people find the products that best suit their needs. The Romedic ReTurn is a popular product that supports those who may require assistance. It is an incredibly effective patient transfer device that assists transfers and can make it easier for people to get in and out of their wheelchair.

About The Romedic ReTurn 

The Romedic ReTurn is a manual patient transfer device that provides an easy, convenient, and natural way to transfer from a wheelchair to a bed, chair, showerchair, or toilet.

Romedic ReTurn is an ideal tool in a rehab unit, hospital ward, or home as it can support transfers for wheelchair users. The Romedic ReTurn reduces manual handling risks for the user and carer. While it can also be used to reposition the users further back in their wheelchair for comfort and pressure care. Additionally, it can also be used as a rehabilitation aid as it replicates the natural movement pattern during standing.

The Romedic ReTurn is designed for users with impaired mobility, strength, or balance, such as those in a wheelchair. It is ideal for patients who may not be confident or able to walk for short distances but can bear some weight, support the movement with their arms, and actively participate in the transfer. 

Quality of life can be hugely improved by simply providing the opportunity for someone to utilise their own ability and strength to transfer in and out of their wheelchair.
