For 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.
