Rotate™

Rotate™ Continuous Lateral Rotation Therapy (CLRT)

Rotate™ provides full-body continuous lateral rotation therapy (CLRT), ideal for immobile patients and/or those suffering from pulmonary complications. The system supports kinetic therapy with a rotation of up to 40 degrees or more in conjunction with low air loss therapy to assist with wound management and percussion/vibration to aid in respiratory therapy.

The Hazards of Immobility

Immobile patients are at a higher risk for many health complications, including pressure ulcers/injuries, pulmonary/respiratory issues, and a correlation to increased caregiver injuries. Typically these immobile patients are vented, sedated, and unable to cough, take a deep breath, or move on their own. The right tools can help address these preventable conditions, leading to better outcomes.

Continuous Lateral Rotation Therapy (CLRT)

Rotate provides full-body Continuous Lateral Rotation Therapy (CLRT), where the patient is turned side to side up to 40 degrees. Gravity and movement mobilize the secretions from the base of the lungs to the point where they can be suctioned out — improving pulmonary functions.1 Rotate™ also provides full body vs. torso-only rotation, keeping the legs active and helping avoid mobility complications such as DVT.2 Read our Clinical Note on CLRT and Percussion/Vibration for Pulmonary Support for more information regarding the benefits of full-body CLRT.

Percussion and Vibration

The Percussion and Vibration therapy mode is used to help break up thick secretions in the lungs by repeatedly stimulating the chest wall. Rotate can be programmed to focus on one, two, or all three zones of the torso, targeting the movement of fluid in the patient’s lungs.

 

Low Air Loss

Our low air loss mattresses have laser-drilled micro holes in the air cells which continually blow out air via the control unit. As a result, moisture is wicked away and the patient stays dry and cool for improved microclimate management.

 

Pulsation Therapy

When rotation is not needed, the Pulsation mode can be used to add gentle stimulation that aids in the increase of capillary blood flow to the skin. This in turn supplies greater oxygen and nutrients to the tissue for improved skin integrity.

Turn Assist

Most patient-handling tasks involve pushing and pulling, increasing likelihood of caregiver and/or patient injury. Rotate provides a turn-assist feature that helps turn the patient without strain to the caregiver, and keeps them positioned on their side to support nursing care such as skin care and linen changes.

Patient Success Story

"[Rotate] is so much better. On days when I don't have help, I can easily turn him. Plus, the fabric is more breathable. I can put my hand under his back and it won't be hot at all."
