Carers, Dignity, Safety

Does it work in the real World?

 
As a carer, you are just as much a user of the aid products as the patient. Therefore, it is just as important that our aid products work optimally for you, too. When developing new aid products, we always try to optimize them with regard to 4 criteria:
 
1. It is our primary responsibility to offer you a safe work environment,
    where you avoid hard and asymmetrical loading
    of the musculoskeletal system and do not have to work standing
    stooped.
 
2. By considering transfer- & care routines as “integrated processes”
    rather than as a sequence of individual tasks, we
    try to limit cumbersome situations to a minimum.
 
3. It is important that intimate situations become as dignified as
    possible both for the patient and the carer as a good
    atmosphere is a prerequisite for a good psychological work
    environment.
 
4. We want to minimize the time spent on “mechanics” in order to
    maximise the time available for “care”. Traditionally
    many tasks could only be carried out safely and efficiently by
    2 carers working together. We prefer systems of care,
    which can be carried out safely by on carer. The goal is not to
    save money – that is a side advantage – but free up
    time. Warm hands are going to be scarce in a few years, and
    the solution is to work "smarter, not harder".
 
 
We want to learn all the time. Therefore, criticism is important to us – both positive and negative. As a result we are always thankful, when carers take the time to tell us what works – and what does not – in the real World.
