Williamson Turn Stand has been proven as an effective device for
transferring patients in two independent studies. . .
conducted by the Center for Cumulative Trauma Disorders at Penn
State University showed that the Williamson Turn Stand can decrease
twisting and rotation by 86% that could be dangerous or cause
When compared to patient
lifts and the hug method, the Williamson Turn Stand was shown to
be significantly more efficient in transferring patients.
A second study conducted by Beth Allyn Bowser, Biologist
and Medical Technologist, looked at 10 patient cases where the Williamson
Turn Stand replaced other transferring methods like the hug method
and patient lift. In 50% of the cases, the Williamson Turn Stand
was used as a long-term solution for transferring bed-confined patients
in a nursing, continuing care facility or at home.
In some cases, the
Williamson Turn Stand was the deciding factor in allowing the patient
to return to home and avoid costly admission into extended care
