How VENDLET Works

The turn sheet is rolled around 2
motorised bars on each side of the bed.

By activating the hand control the
turn sheet rolls around one bar and
thereby repositions or turns
the patient to one side.

An easy one person job.

Ease of Daily Care Routines
VENDLET makes repositioning of patients in bed an easy one person job at the touch of a button. There will be improved care giver productivity and no more manual handling.

Easy Attachment to Most Beds
VENDLET is easily attached to most hospital and nursing home beds and works as an integrated part of the bed.
VENDLET does not restrict the bed nor have a negative impact on the efficiency of alternating air mattresses.

A Comprehensive View of the Patient's Needs
The uniform and gentle procedure ensures patient comfort and a postive contact between care giver and patient. The care giver has a comprehensive view of the procedure making it possible to support the patient's needs during the procedure.

Improved Care Giver Productivity
VENDLET simplifies planning of the daily care routines because the patient in many situations can be handled by one person.

Note: When mounted on the bed frame, VENDLET does not affect the other functions of the bed.

Vendlet Side Rail

The easist way to attach the side rails
is to press the bent edges on to
the bars one at a time.


Vendlet Side Rail

To remove the side rails take hold of
the side and pull upwards.


Vendlet Side Rail

The side rail, when not in use,
should always hang on rod under roller.

Mounting of the Slide Sheet
The slide sheet reduces the friction against the mattress and thereby the electricity consumption when using the VENDLET.

  1. Stretch the elastic in the corner of the slide sheet round the mattress.
  2. Make sure the surface is smooth and even without wrinkles or creases.
  3. Assemble velcro straps around the steel frame under the mattress.
  4. It is important that the straps be installed around the steel frame under the mattress and not around the bed frame, since the bed back, knee and leg cannot then be raised.
  5. The straps are long enough to use on extra thick mattresses.
  6. Ensure velcro straps do not hold the slide sheet too tight, as this can reduce the function of the mattress (Note: An air mattress should be inflated).

Inspect slide sheet regularly for excessive wear from frequent use. A slide sheet in poor condition increases friction with the mattress and can increase the risk of pressure ulcers.

Mounting of the Turning Sheet

  1. Place the turning sheet in the middle of the bed with the velcro down.
  2. Fasten the turning sheet to the velcro straps on the roller. Start at the head end and work down toward the foot end.
  3. The turn sheet must always roll OVER the roller. This prevents catching the patient's hands, hair, etc. in the roller. Also if the turning sheet rolls up from under the roller traction will be reduced. Do not pull the sheet as it will fit exactly on the bar.
  4. Drive about three quarters of sheet into the roller using the hand control Tighten RedTighten Blue.
  5. Fasten turning sheet onto the Velcro strip on the opposite roller.
  6. Run the turning sheet into this roller using hand control Tighten RedTighten Blue until it is smooth on the mattress with the red stripe in the middle of the mattress.

It is recommended that the red stripe be placed in the middle of the mattress. This ensures maximum maneuverability during use of the VENDLET.

Side Rails Attachment
The side rails are to hang securely between the mattress and the support on the inner side of the roller.
Note: See cautions in user manual.

  1. Press Loosen Red and Loosen Blue to slacken the sheet on both rollers to allow for the plastic side rails to be pressed on to the rollers. The side rails are to hang securely between the mattress and the support on the inner side of the roller.
  2. Adjust the height of the bed to ensure correct posture when pressing the side rails on to the rollers.

    The easiest way to attach the side rails is to slant them and press the bent edges on to the rollers one at a time.
  3. Note! When the side rails are pressed on to the rollers, the spacer at the bottom of the side rail must be in line with the head or footboard to ensure that the patient does not get fingers etc. caught in the gap. Site is therefore marked with a warning triangle.
  4. Always attach the side rail at the foot of the bed before the side rail at the head of the bed. This prevents the patient from getting caught between the side rails.

Side Rail Removal

  1. Adjust the height of the bed to ensure correct posture when removing the plastic side rails from the rollers.
  2. To remove the side rails take hold of the side and pull upwards at an angle.
  3. The side rails may be damaged if they get jammed or caught. Therefore, always hang them on the side rail support bars beneath the rollers when they are not in use.
Before Use of VENDLET
  1. The surface of the bed must be flat and horizontal before operating VENDLET.
  2. Adjust the height of the bed to ensure correct posture.
  3. If side rails is used – remove them and hang them on the side rail support bars.
  4. Press the green start button to activate the timer for 1½ minutes. If the timer disconnects while VENDLET is in use, press the green start button again to activate the timer again.
  5. The bars are marked red or blue corresponding to the colours on the hand control.
After Use of VENDLET
  1. Raise the bars to top level.
  2. Press Loosen Red or Loosen Blue to slacken the turning sheet enough to allow for the bent edges of the side rails to be pressed on to the bars.
  3. Adjust the height of the bed to ensure correct posture when pressing the side rails on to the bars.
  4. Attach the side rails on the bars. Always remember to attach the side rail at the foot of the bed before the side rail at the head of the bed.
  5. Press the red stop button to cut off the power supply to VENDLET.
