Rehabmart.com, an online e-commerce company that sells rehabilitation and medical supplies, has joined into a distribution alliance with HealthCraft Products, Incorporated, to offer their Revo™ Patient Turner to a wider consumer marketplace. Headquartered in Ottawa, Canada, HealthCraft Products was founded to manifest the development of product concepts based on direct real world feedback and input from thousands of therapists, caregivers and patients who use or work with medical equipment on a daily basis. Their innovative designs enable elderly and physically challenged users the ability to live independently in their own homes. The key personnel of HealthCraft bring over fifty years of combined experience to their product development, including intensive backgrounds in occupational therapy and engineering design. Their products have won numerous awards and received much positive recognition and accolades through the years from a variety of organizations including MedTrade, Kitchen and Bath Business, and the Canadian Seating & Mobility Conference.
Manufactured under license from Parsons ADL and the Parsons EZ TURN II brand, the Revo™ Patient Turner from HealthCraft is a portable and upright patient transfer device specifically designed to allow an assisted transfer from one seated position to another. Outfitted with superior quality fittings to meet the demands of today's medical facilities, the patient turner boasts shatterproof alloy steel knobs that will not crack or break from impact or excessive use, and a rib reinforced steel base and heavy duty ball bearings. The height adjustable handle comes with non-latex comfort grips and is adjustable from 30 inches to 43 inches, making this transfer device suitable for users and caregivers of all heights. Height and width adjustable knee pads increase comfort for the user, and can be quickly adjusted to transfer multiple differently-sized patients in a hospital or long-term care facility.
Other benefits and safety features of the Revo™ include a quick lock brake pedal, anti-slip foot pads and an ultra-smooth transfer disc that consistently creates a level weight-bearing surface for smooth, safe transfers every time. “We are excited to introduce the Revo™ Patient Turner from HealthCraft to more consumers,” said Hulet Smith, OTR/L, MBA and CEO of Rehabmart. “This device is perfect for reducing caregiver strain, while it also promotes user safety, allowing patients to make use of their available strength. The heavy duty frame, ultra smooth transfer disc and adjustable knee pads provide a safe and controlled pivot transfer for both patient and caregiver, reducing risks of injury for all. We are proud to offer this, and all of the great transfer and independent living products from HealthCraft Products to our customers at Rehabmart.com.”
