Manufacturers of patient handling equipment rely on Master Bond structural adhesive systems to meet application specific requirements. These durable, high strength, dependable, consistent, steadfast compositions help ensure safe, comfortable, efficient, and flexible solutions for patients with a wide variety of health conditions and diseases. Our custom formulations are utilized to build mobility scooters, power wheelchairs, stair lifts, patient standing assists, hospital beds, ceiling mounted and mobile floor based lifts. Master Bond adhesives and sealants can be employed for the construction of acute care, long term care, rehabilitation and bariatric care devices. Electrically conductive, thermally conductive and electrically insulative compositions have been instrumental in this effort.
Master Bond bonding agents can enable the design of patient handling equipment for numerous applications. They include:
- Heart/lung issues
- Impaired balance
- Gait abnormalities
- Visual illnesses
- Intestinal infection
- Kidney disease
Patient handling equipment has been most advantageous in aiding individuals with maladies in hospitals, assisted living facilities, nursing homes, retirement communities, ambulatory care and homes.
It is important to note that manual lifting should be limited and that medical care should be only performed in the safest conditions. Many states have implemented safe handling guidelines promoting the use of assistive devices for patient transfers and positioning. Physical demands for nurses, nurses’ aides, attendants puts these employees in danger of musculoskeletal disorders such as lower back injuries, muscle strains, and tendonitis. That is why to decrease the potential of injuries safe handling programs are absolutely crucial to reduce the risk of harm. It is mandatory that lifting, transferring and repositioning training be properly conducted to optimize safety procedures during patient handling.
