What is it?

The Invacare Soft Tilt is a unique and innovative in-bed system designed to automatically reposition patients for pressure ulcer prevention, as well as support families and carers with daily moving and handling tasks, such as sling application and transfers into and out of bed.

Automated pressure relief – The Soft Tilt can be programmed to gently turn patients at various intervals and position them at different angles throughout the night; relieving pressure and reducing the risk of pressure ulcer development. The automated repositioning feature reduces the number of night time visits from care staff, allowing for a more peaceful and undisturbed night sleep for the patient.

Single carer working – Ideal for single carer working environments, the Soft Tilt can also be used manually by care staff to give full access for sling application, glide sheets and personal care. Furthermore, the Soft Tilt can be used in conjunction with the beds profiling mechanism to allow care staff to safely transfer patients in and out of bed – with minimal effort, protecting carers from potential back injury, which can be caused through moving and handling

Key Features

Automated Pressure Relief

The Soft Tilt can be programmed to automatically turn patients at various intervals and angles throughout the night; relieving pressure and preventing the development of pressure ulcers. When operating automatically, the wings will never elevate higher than 30° to ensure optimal safety and comfort whilst the patient is sleeping.

Single Carer Working

The Soft Tilt can be operated manually by a carer, making it ideal for moving and handling within single carer working environments. The easy to use hand control allows the carer to elevate the wings to up to 60°, giving full access for sling application, glide sheets and personal care. Furthermore, when used in conjunction with the beds profiling movements, the Soft Tilt allows the carer to safely transfer the patient in and out of bed – into a standing position – with minimal effort, protecting the carer from potential back injury

Bathing Cradle Review

Hi Andrew

We have had a really exciting day today: our pupil has tried the Shower Cradle in the pool and it is absolutely amazing!! We set it up this morning with the rolls and headrest ect and the pupil has just been in the water independently for the first time with the TA beside and not needing to hold on to support at all.

we have shown it to lots of staff and will now start assessing other pupils to see how many more would benefit from using the cradle. it is so adaptable with the adjustable mesh/tilt feature and the different loops to hoist it into the water and it will make such a difference to our less mobile pupils.

Parent of Blind 10yo Child

“Being 10yrs old, blind unable to talk or walk would be enough to moan about for most…yet our daughter didn’t moan…until we got the Durance Junior chair.!!

She loves it so much that unless we get her out of her wheelchair, after school or hospital trips and into her comfy Durance Junior she wont stop moaning…she loves it.

Great personalised service were the customers needs are put first…Many other companies would do well to learn from Andrew at ambre-stone”
