    Rice Lake D1100 Portable Wireless Bed Scale With 1200lb Capacity

    November 14th, 2013

    Weighing patients who can not get out of bed is often difficult, but it does not have to be. With the D1100 Portable Wireless Bed Scale by Rice Lake, you can weigh patients in their beds without requiring them to get up.

    1stSeniorCare-Inovision-Portable-wheelchair-wireless-scale-system-big

    The D1100 comes with four weighing pads, with each being placed under one wheel of the bed. The bed is then rolled on top of the weighing pads, and they wirelessly communicate the weight of the patient to a display. The D1100 is perfect for multiple patients and facilities like hospitals and nursing homes, with the capacity to remember the weights of forty patients at one time for 100 days. If this is not enough for your facility, a USB cable can be used to transfer the patient data onto a computer where it can be stored permanently, allowing nearly unlimited numbers of patients to use the system.

    Weights can also be taken quickly thanks to the design of the system. Each pad weighs only three pounds, so it is simple to get them into position. Further, the pads can be up to thirty feet away from the display and still produce a reading on the display. Finally, the scale can accurately weigh all the way up to over half a ton, 1,200 pounds.

    Traditional scales do not work well for bariatric patients, but the Rice Lake D1100 makes it easy to manage the weight of patients who cannot get out of bed.


    IWalk Hands Free Knee Crutch

    November 5th, 2013

    Crutches are a good alternative to wheelchairs for those with greater mobility than wheelchair users, but they have some very annoying qualities. For one, they tie up the hands of the user while they are walking and can cause shoulder pain as they are under the shoulders of the user. Crutches make it nearly impossible to push a shopping cart or even carry something across a room.

    The iWalk Hands Free Knee Crutch can solve these problems. The iWalk is a revolutionary crutch that allows the user to continue their normal active lifestyle while still supporting their lower leg injury. In fact, it is even better for the injury than traditional crutches as the user’s leg is elevated off the ground, which increases the blood flow to the leg. To use the iWalk, the user simply puts their injured leg in the device and straps it in. They can soon walk as normal using their other leg and the crutch on the bottom of the iWalk.

    The iWalk is an affordable solution even for patients whose insurance does not cover it, and can allow those with lower leg injuries to get back to their normal lives much more quickly than traditional crutches or wheelchairs.

     


    SECA mBCA 514 515 Medical Body Composition Analyzer

    May 31st, 2013

    The seca mBCA 515 is a medical Body Composition Analyzer which is ideally adapted to the working conditions in hospitals and medical practices. In order to obtain a truly meaningful BIA measurement, we need to look beyond the many technical requirements. For one thing, the device has to be quick and easy to use for both medical staff and patients. For another, the measurement results have to be reproducible under normal clinical working conditions. These exact considerations went into the development of the seca mBCA 515.

    Clinically validated, medically precise, and medically relevant. seca has compared its measurement results from the seca mBCA with those of the scientific gold standard in clinical studies. It is clear that the seca

    seca-515_sports_lady_on_mBCA_with_nurse_RGB_430

    mBCA not only promises to but also fulfills medical requirements.

    A measurement that can measure itself against the gold standard.

    The seca mBCA compares fat mass (FM) and fat-free mass (FFM) with the gold standard, which is a combination of four labour-intensive comparative methods (ADP*, D20*, DEXA* and weight). Furthermore, seca compared extracellular water with the NaBr* method. The results are clear: In contrast to
    many other BCA measurement devices on the market, the seca mBCA delivers measurements that are nearly as precise as the immensely complicated scientific methods.

    A measurement that takes ethnic differences into account.

    In the validation of the seca mBCA four major ethnicities were considered: Caucasian, South and Central American, Afro-American, and Asian.

     

     

     

    Abnormal body composition.

    Even abnormal body composition was considered in the validation of the seca mBCA. In contrast to most other BCA vices, which were validated only for healthy patients.

    Analysis with six modules

    The six analytical modules of the new seca mBCA 515 offer the user innumerable diagnostic options. With precise ratios such as fat mass to weight or extracellular to intracellular water, the doctor can now obtain indications of medical disorders which were previously difficult to diagnose without additional examinations. Another significant advantage comes with the graphic presentation of measurement results, which visualizes the doctor’s findings for the patient.

    The six modules in the seca mBCA 515:

    • Energy
    • Fluid
    • Function/Rehabilitation
    • Development/Growth
    • Health risk
    • Raw impedance data

    The modules at a glance

    Decide for yourself which modules should be available to you. Then you can set up the seca mBCA 515 to suit your medical specialty exactly.

    Automatic electrode detection
    The seca mBCA 515 makes a measurement only when all the electrodes have proper contact. This safeguard prevents faulty measurements and thus spares the patient from having to repeat the procedure. As the seca mBCA 515 shows when one of the eight electrodes is not working correctly, it’s possible to intervene and correct the positions of the hands and feet before a measurement is taken.

    Standing aid with hand-held electrodes for precise results.
    No other BCA has hand-held electrodes in a standing aid. This combination is important as it prevents faulty measurements and ensures result reproducibility. When the patient always grasps the electrodes in the same way, the angle of the arms to the body is unchanged for every measurement. The handrail also makes the measuring process easier for the patient, who is often overweight or ill and has trouble standing motionless without assistance.

    Ableware Patient Slide Makes Positioning Easier and Safer

    May 23rd, 2013

    Caring for an individual who has trouble staying in an upright seated position can be difficult and, in some cases, can cause back strain for the caregiver and injuries to the person needing assistance. Maddak’s new Patient Slide Positioning Device is designed to provide caregivers with an easier, safer way to seat an individual to the back of a chair for better support. “Often people with difficulty sitting upright will find themselves in the dangerous position of being seated at the front edge of a chair. A caregiver’s first response will be to grab the person and pull them to the back of the seat. Repeated grabbing and pulling of the individual to get them into a proper sitting position can lead to a caregiver unintentionally bruising or irritating the patient’s skin, or possibly causing an injury. The Patient Slide provides a method of positioning an individual to an upright seated position at the back of a chair in a manner that is easier, more efficient and safer for both the caregiver and the person requiring assistance.”

    704030000_a_500 (1)

    The Patient Slide is 46″ (116.8 cm) long with 3 sets of handles to accommodate various sized individuals and seating scenarios. The smooth surface on one side reduces friction allowing it to easily move across the chair, while the non-slip material on the other side holds the patient safely in place during the positioning process.

    Hanek further explained, “To use the Patient Slide the caregiver slides the device under the patient’s legs so that one set of handles is on each side. Then standing behind the patient, the caregiver chooses the handles that are best for the situation and gently pulls up on the Patient Slide to allow the device to slide over the top of the seat. While pulling up, the caregiver alternates pulling with the right and left arm until the individual is seated correctly with their back flush against the chair. When the process has been completed the Patient Slide can remain on the chair or it can be removed.”

    The Ableware Patient Slide Positioning Device, SKU ABW704030000 is available from 4MD Medical.

    Ableware Maddak Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench

    April 10th, 2013

    Ableware Sliding Rotating Bench Makes the Bathroom a Safer Place

    transfer benchIf you are thinking “I didn’t know the bathroom was unsafe”, consider this: a 2011 study by the Center for Disease Control reported that hundreds of thousands of falls occur in the bathroom each year, with seniors suffering the most serious injuries. One reason for these falls is difficulty stepping over the wall of a bathtub. A solution to overcoming this is the Ableware Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench from which simplifies the process of getting into and out of the bathtub by eliminating the need for a person to step over the side.

    Kathleen Hanek, Director of Product Management for Maddak Inc., U.S. manufacturer of Ableware Aids for Daily Living, explains “the Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench is extremely helpful to people who have difficulty stepping over the wall of a bathtub. It has a long seating surface and is positioned with two legs in the tub and two legs outside. This allows you to sit down on the portion of the seat that is outside and safely transfer across the seat into the inside of the tub. The sliding feature enables you to move across the bench with very little effort, and the swivel seat allows for easier transfers into the tub and optimal accessibility for caregivers.” In addition to the senior population Hanek adds “the Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench is ideal for anyone who has a lower extremity injury or a disability that prevents weight bearing on the legs”.

    The Ableware Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench is height adjustable from 16 – 23″ (40.6 – 58.4 cm) and, according to Hanek, “features Maddak’s exclusive quick-change leg design that makes adjusting the height simple. The legs can be easily adjusted in 1/4″ (.64 cm) increments and they have non-slip rubber tips that hold the bench securely in place.” The legs, back and arm are all removable for easy transport and storage. Other amenities include a built-in soap tray, a shower spray holder and a slit for the shower curtain. Made of talc filled polypropylene the Sliding Rotating Transfer Bench has a weight capacity of 400 lb. (181.8 kg).

    Nearly two-thirds of American adults are overweight or obese, yet only one-third of doctors are discussing weight with their patients. While no one seems to be offended by discussing routine vitals showing high blood pressure or high cholesterol, doctors face the daunting challenge and discomfort of addressing weight-related issues with overweight and obese patients. With many doctors pressed for time and patients becoming defensive and/or hurt when told they are overweight or obese, the awkward discussion is often avoided altogether. As the global leader in medical measuring and weighing, seca understands that discussing weight can be a touchy issue. The lack of dialogue, however, is hurting patients.  But it doesn’t have to be, let seca be the ice breaker.

    0_704_wireless_600x600_RGBThe seca 360° product system is an entirely new approach to advising patients about weight related issues.  Within a few easy steps, measurements are interpreted and printed immediately for a patient to review while they wait to be seen by the doctor.  This immediate print out enhances patient education on maintaining healthy weight and initiates the weight discussion if desired by the patient. This type of diagnostic print out adds a completely new dimension to medical advice and allows doctor offices the ability to communicate this information to their patients in a non-confrontational environment.  Imagine a revolutionary system that provides patients with feedback at every appointment and empowers them to initiate the discussion when they feel comfortable. Available with every seca 360° device at no extra cost, seca scales are equipped with premium EMR connectivity solutions as well as unique safety features with both practitioner and patient in mind.

    The seca 360 wireless product line:

    seca 360° wireless is the first of its kind in the world. The products transmit their data via a special medical wireless protocol in a simple, secure and swift seca network. In this system the measuring instruments and scales can communicate with your PC, a seca 360° wireless printer or your Electronic Medical Record (EMR) system.
