Telehealth involves the remote exchange of data between patients and healthcare professionals. The innovation is revolutionising patient care as it allows for regular diagnosis and the careful monitoring of the health and weight of patients.
It also reduces the strain on GP surgeries, hospitals and the NHS.
A rollboard is designed to improve lateral transfer for both the patient and healthcare staff. It's an innovative alternative to slide sheets with comfort and ease of use at the forefront of its design.
Why are we telling you this? Because the Silverboard is coming to the UK, exclusively through Marsden. We’ve teamed up with German rollboard specialists Transatlantic, because of the benefits we think it can bring to our healthcare system.
This month we unveiled our new M-250 with stand assist: a revolutionary scale with ergonomic design to ease patients from a sitting to standing position.
The movement from sitting to standing can be a great strain on those suffering with existing conditions. Hip fracture is the most common serious condition in older people and costs the NHS £1billion per year.
The Patient Transfer Scale is so easy to use when you need a quick weight for immobile patients, because it’s used in just the same way as you would a transfer board or transfer slide.
It’s important, though, to remember that the PTS is a weighing scale too, and a few pointers on technique will make all the difference when getting your weight reading.
