Legacy is a mechanical turning bed developed for the treatment of complex trauma, including multiple injuries, spinal, and spinal cord injuries and acute medical conditions.

With extensive input from specialist nursing and medical staff, its operation has been designed to reduce the physical strain for healthcare workers, as well as to preserve patient safety during turning, transfer and treatment.

Patients until now deemed “not for turning” can now be turned safely and comfortably – improving care without compromising their condition, injuring nursing staff or draining resources.

  • Spinal/Spinal Cord Injury
  • Neurology
  • Neurosurgery
  • Obstetrics
  • Orthopaedics
  • Intensive care
