VitalGo is dedicated to enhancing hospital and nursing homes’ abilities to administer medical treatments and to helping prevent caregiver injuries. Our advanced technology-based solutions are designed to improve safety and quality of life for people who have difficulty performing daily personal care activities, such as getting in and out of bed as well as for the professional nursing staff, caregivers and family members who care for them.
Addressing a vital and growing need
As medical science has advanced, one of the major challenges in hospital and long-term care, as well as in homecare of the elderly, has largely remained unsolved: the safe, dignified transfer of people to and from bed. In even the most advanced hospitals and nursing homes, nurses, aides and other staff risk pain and injury when lifting patients from reclining to sitting and standing positions and back again. Spouses and other family members of recuperating and aging people, themselves often elderly, are at particular risk of serious injury when helping another adult from a reclining to standing position.
The difficulty of lifting patients into sitting and standing positions also has serious medical ramifications as spending long periods of time in a prone position can lead to respiratory complications, muscle atrophy, bladder infections, digestive problems, and more.
As the number of people living beyond 65 and into their 80s and 90s has increased, the demand for solutions that support aging in place (i.e. in one’s own home) has grown. Similarly, in recent years government focus on preventing injuries of patients and caregivers, which lead to high costs of care and in lost work days, has also intensified.
A new approach to patient transfer
At Vitalgo Systems, we are committed to developing and implementing advanced products to address this vital
and growing need for safe lifting modalities in hospitals,care facilities and homecare situations.
Every aspect of our product design and development is guided by the belief that it is not enough to just bring the
patient to a standing position; rather, it must be done in a way that ensures the safety of both the patient and
the caregiver and with full respect for the patient’s dignity.
Based on a unique combination of advanced technologies, Vitalgo's products fully address the threat of caregiver and
patient injuries caused by transfers and they also can assist in various aspects of medical treatments and rehabilitation,
such as physical therapy.
Vitalgo’s flagship product, the innovative Total Lift Bed™, sets a new standard in user and caregiver safety and comfort. Designed for use in hospitals, nursing homes, rehabilitation facilities and in private homes, the Total Lift Bed is the only bed that can raise the user from a lying position to a full standing position and all intermediate positions. Other products, currently in various stages of development, will provide innovative, safe and dignified solutions for bathing, using the toilet, and other daily activities.
