The Big Turn system provides full-body continuous lateral rotation therapy (CLRT) for immobile bariatric patients and/or those suffering from pulmonary complications. The system supports kinetic therapy with a rotation of 40 degrees or more in conjunction with continuous clinically effective low air loss therapy to assist in wound management protocols.
If rotation is not desired, pulsation mode can be used to provide active pressure redistribution by increasing and decreasing pressure over the entire body at preset cycle times. In addition, the optimal respiratory therapy module allows mechanical percussion and vibration for the immobile patient. The control settings allow for three areas of the lung to be percussed and vibrated independently with varying degrees of pressure. The nurse can begin therapy and know the control will automatically stop at a prescribed time.
Chest Physiotherapy Explained
The purpose of chest physiotherapy (CPT) is to help patients breathe more freely and to facilitate the oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange in the lungs. Percussion and vibration therapy is used to help breakup thick secretions in the lungs by repeatedly stimulating the chest wall. Our percussion and vibration therapy can be programmed to focus on one, two or all three zones of the back, targeting the movement of the fluid in the patient's lungs.
The programmable therapy can be set for five, ten or twenty minutes with options for percussion, vibration or both.
