Areas of application
Turning patients from back to front position (proning) is and always will be a technically difficult action. Perfectly positioning patients on their front has major consequences for operations and long-term ventilation in the intensive care unit (ICU).
The demand for home care is on the rise due to the ageing population and because dependants want to stay in their familiar surroundings as long as possible. In order to meet this demand innovations are required which may help home care nurses in their daily activities.
