Guardian and COVID-19

Guardian is being deployed as an intervention for optimizing the care of mechanically-ventilated patients during the COVID-19 pandemic

In a single-center case study, the following clinical benefits were observed:


Improved care flexibility by aiding in resource challenges

Enhanced protection of patients who were difficult or unable to be turned

Reduced sacral-region pressure injury incidence

A 399-patient randomized, controlled trial studying adverse event prevention in high-risk acute care patients, comparing TurnCare to alternating pressure beds:

81% reduction in sacral region pressure injuries


Other systemic benefits observed
