For most of us, getting out of bed is a simple and almost automatic activity; however, if you are one of the millions of Americans who cannot get out of bed on their own, this simple task is a major barrier to living a satisfying life.
NEXT HEALTH now offers the AgileLife System, an automated, no lift patient transfer and mobility system. The AgileLife System helps people who are bedridden transfer in and out of bed easily, safely and quickly. For caregivers, AgileLife automates patient transfer to and from a hospital bed into a wheelchair/commode docked at the foot of the bed.
The core product is an integration of several assistive devices that address all of the challenges of safe patient handling. In both home and institutional settings, the AgileLife System virtually eliminates risk of patient falls and can reduce the development of pressure ulcers (bed sores) through increased patient mobility and pressure redistribution surfaces. The AgileLife System is the only true “zero Lift” device that can reduce caregiver injury due to musculoskeletal strain.
Disabled individuals regain their dignity and independence; family burden is reduced without resorting to nursing home care or exorbitant in-home hourly expense; caregivers can save time and avoid career threatening injuries; and insurers save money as a result of improved patient and caregiver outcomes. Few technologies hold so much promise to so many throughout the healthcare system.
At NEXT HEALTH we are committed to creating and delivering an integrated technology and services portfolio that “Simply Transforms Caregiving”.
