EVERY PROJECT BEGINS AS A VISION
Our vision for the Sequential Automated Turning System began several years ago at the bedside. Our founder and CEO Ryan Speidel has been an RN since 2004 in a variety of clinical settings including various medical/surgical units and the intensive care unit. The idea for this product originated back in 2017, when Ryan had an “aha” moment while assisting with turning and repositioning patients. That idea slowly transformed into the product that we are actively developing now.
Patient and staff safety are of paramount importance, representing the most basic pillars of healthcare. Unfortunately, patient and staff safety are frequently threatened by factors associated with staffing difficulties, overwhelming nursing staff workloads, and competing care priorities with increasingly higher acuity patients. We are committed to developing products that optimize patient and staff safety and well-being by bringing innovative products to market that are designed to improve nursing workflow, decrease nursing workload, and address issues that contribute to decreased patient care quality.
In any healthcare facility, the goal is to take the best possible care of patients. With that said, for immobile or deconditioned patients, it is important for caregivers to frequently turn and reposition patients.
Our innovative product makes quick work of turning those patients as needed. One caregiver can do the job with little or no effort at all. The Sequential Automated Turning system consists of two inflatable wedges that are positioned beneath the patient.
