Turna, a powered in-bed patient turner, is a unique combination of a powered turning sheet and two bed rails. The system is controlled using a handset which rotates one roller at a time, causing the sheet to turn the person lying on it. This reduces the strain of turning a person as it is no longer just a manual task but a task that is controlled at the press of a button.

Turna, as an in-bed patient turner, is a unique combination of a powered turning sheet and two bed rails. The system is controlled using a handset which rotates one roller at a time, causing the sheet to turn the person lying on it. This reduces the strain of turning a person as it is no longer just a manual task but a task that is controlled at the press of a button.
Turna is compatible with most profiling beds enabling greater flexibility. (Subject to a risk assessment from an Accora Product Specialist)

The care staff have reported that use of the Turna has been very successful; they feel they can complete their task in less time, and the risk of injury to them is significantly reduced.
