The Big Turn is available in either 39" or 48" widths. It offers two forms of therapy, Full Body Lateral Rotation and True Low Air Loss. Full Body Lateral Rotation refers to turning the full body from head totoe. This is very important because most of our competitors are not able to do this. Their products for the most part only turn the upper torso. Full body lateral rotation is excellent for pulmonary challenges where fluids will build up in the lungs. This buildup could lead to pneumonia. Full body lateral rotation also helps for urinary stasis issues. Again the movement of fluids is to create a better circulatory situation. And lastly our full body lateral rotation is designed to raise the legs just a little bit higher than the heart. The benefit of this therapy is that when the body does not have the proper movement, especially in the legs, blood clots can begin to form, especially behind the legs. This is called deep vein thrombosis, and very hard to detect. Our Big Turn will provide a much needed thearpy for those issues.

The Big Turn also provides True Low Air Loss. Again True Low Air Loss refers to the amount of air, at least 100 liters, escaping from the air cells, through the top cover, disseminated over the back side of the body, keeping the interface pressure under 32mmHg (millimeters of Mercury). 32 mmHg is the industry standard designated breakpoint where blood flow is shut off to the capillaries. When blood flow is shut off, nutrients and oxygen are prevented from reaching the skin, setting up the scenario for skin breakdown.

The Big Turn is therefore called a dual modality system, True Low Air Loss and Full Body Lateral Rotaion. True Low Air Loss reamins constant 24 hours per day, 7 days per week & 365 days per year. It is selectable on the blower by hitting the Static button. Whereas Full Body Lateral Rotation is optional and programmable and always able to be turn off if necessary.

The Blower is capable of blowing 250-300 liters of air per minute. Whereas a pump will have a typically offering of True Low Air Loss. A pump cannot keep up with the amount of air loss on a True Low Air Loss System.
