Elderly people who are bedridden for a long time are prone to complications such as bedsores, intramuscular atrophy, and joint stiffness. Therefore, Guangdong wheelchairs can be used to encourage bedridden elderly people to regularly engage in outdoor activities, promoting blood circulation and physical recovery. It should be noted that assisting elderly people in getting into and out of wheelchairs is only applicable to elderly people who cannot walk but can sit up.
1. Check the wheelchair
Firstly, check if all components of the wheelchair are in good condition, if the brakes are fixed, if the pedals are turned properly, and if the front wheels are in place, push the wheelchair to the end of the bed. The back of the chair is flush with the end of the bed, with the opening facing the head of the bed.
2. Help the elderly sit up
Assist the elderly in sitting up, turning around, with legs hanging down by the bed, and put on shoes for the elderly.
3. Assist the elderly in getting into a wheelchair
Assist the elderly in sitting in a wheelchair, protect the operator's body during operation, and pay attention to the principle of labor saving. Ask the elderly person to gently press the operator's shoulder, with both hands crossed on the elderly person's waist. At the same time, stand up and help the elderly person onto the wheelchair. Hold onto the armrest with one hand and gently help the elderly person sit in the wheelchair.
4. Assist the elderly in sitting down
Lower the pedals and place the elderly person's feet on the pedals. Have the elderly person sit back and support the armrest with both hands. If the elderly person is weak, you can tie a restraining strap and release the brake to push the elderly person out of the activity.
Attention: When the weather is cold, it is necessary to promptly add clothes to the patient to prevent them from catching cold. After the activity, the same method can be used to help the patient return to bed.
