Frames, Turning

Definition : Mechanical frames designed for turning patients 180? along the longitudinal axis of the body (i.e., from supine to prone positions and vice versa). These frames typically consist of a two-component metallic structure resembling a hospital table; the patient is placed in supine position on one of the frame components and the other is adjusted on the patient to keep him/her tight. The table also has a mechanism intended to allow one healthcare provider to turn the patient. Turning frames are intended for critically ill patients suffering from pulmonary and/or spinal traumas or diseases.
