Hercules Patient Repositioner™
Hercules Patient Repositioner™ features an innovative drive unit, pressure redistribution mattress, and a specialized sheet that positions a patient up in bed in a matter of seconds.
Moving a patient more frequently relieves peak pressure points. As the patient is positioned up in bed, they move with the sheet and stay static on top, which virtually eliminates the friction that can cause skin shear and tears. Hercules repositions patients weighing up to 750 pounds or patients with little to no strength, easily bringing them to the head of the bed with the touch of a button.
The positioning sheet eliminates the need for caregivers to recruit floor staff to help position the patient up in bed, negating injuries caused by attempts to reposition patients without assistance. For the patient, being pulled back up in bed often can be an uncomfortable, unsafe, and embarrassing experience. With Hercules, one care provider can easily handle repositioning while protecting the patient’s dignity, comfort, and risk of injury.
