DM Systems/Position Health
Position Health is proud to introduce the TurnAssist Patient Turning System. Managing microturns is a key part of any pressure ulcer prevention protocol, and the TurnAssist makes it easier than ever.

Durable, washable and easy to use, the TurnAssist uses an advanced glide sheet material to provide a superior microclimate. The offset wedge system has pull handles to make repositioning easier, and the wedges are completely covered for easy wipability. Optional incontinence pads provide moisture control. Save nursing time and prevent injury at a better value than other systems. Also available in bariatric.

HARTMANN, who last year introduced Dignity® Briefs with Curly Fiber, will showcase an expanded assortment of skin-friendly absorbent products with Curly Fiber at this year's show-booth #823. Absorbent products with Curly Fiber protect the skin by reducing the high pH of voids to skin-friendly pH 5.5. Renowned incontinence researcher Donna Bliss will review the findings of her recent study on the efficacy of Curly Fiber in reducing the risk for incontinence associated skin damage at a breakfast symposium on June 7, and later the same day during an Innovation Theater from 2:30 pm to 3:00 pm.
