Beds, Electric, Rotation
Definition : Electric beds designed for periodic or constant turning (i.e., rotate) patients along the vertical axis of the bed, keeping the body alignment. These beds typically include a surface and restraints that are appropriate for use as a mattress and to keep the patient in a fixed position while rotating. Rotation electric beds are intended for unstable trauma patients, particularly those who have spinal cord injury; they also may be used for patients who have severe pulmonary disorders and/or decubitus ulcers.
