Turning yourself around in bed with an electric turning aid

electric turning aidFor several Pompe patients it can become difficult or impossible to turn around in bed independently. This also happened to me.

When this problem started to appear in my life, I looked for a solution to be able to stay as independent as possible, also during the night. I didn’t want to be a burden to my caregivers and I did want to turn when I wanted to turn, just like anyone else.

When looking around I found an electronic turning aid that can be mounted to a bed frame, also a special bed frame that can be elevated. I operate this turning aid myself via a remote control. I use this electronic turning aid for over 10 years now and for me it is the perfect solution.

This electric turning aid is reimbursed by my health insurance.
