Mode of Use/Application

The Mölnlycke® Tortoise™ Turning and Positioning System decreases the amount of effort needed to turn and position an adult. It protects the bony areas of the body such as the sacrum, hips and shoulders when the patient is lying on their back or side. It also helps to hold the patient in the desired position after turning and helps with boosting (moving the patient up in the bed). Refer to product application guide for step-by-step directions.
