Patients must obtain PATRAN® slide sheets from health care providers
Jamar Health Products Inc, does not sell PATRAN® slide sheets direct to patients, their loved ones, or other individuals who may be caring for them in a home. Only professional healthcare organizations may purchase PATRAN slide sheets.
JHP understands that home health is a growing market and many homebound patients could benefit from mobility solutions. Patients should work with their healthcare providers to obtain PATRAN® slide sheets as part of a home health care plan.
Healthcare providers are best qualified to evaluate whether PATRAN® is an appropriate home care product for each specific patient’s medical condition and capabilities. Healthcare providers must also train patients and their home caregivers, communicate safety precautions and ensure competency before providing PATRAN slide sheets for in-home use.
PATRANapp compression hose applicator can help boost patient compliance at home
While PATRAN® slide sheets are not available for purchase by patients directly from our company, the PATRANapp compression hose applicators can be purchased by individuals for home use.
Patients who have been discharged from a hospital setting often receive orders to wear compression stockings to assist with circulation, reduce swelling, and prevent blood clots. However, pulling on compression stockings takes dexterity and strength, so much so that many patients and their caregivers simply give up and stop using them.
Purchasing a PATRANapp can make getting stockings on the patient much easier for the family or homecare assistants. If the patient has the ability to reach his or her feet but lacks arm/hand strength, they may be able to use the PATRANapp to put on his or her own hose.
