Quotes "THE ROCK-KING IS AWESOME! IT RECLINES, ROCKS AND IT IS SO COMFORTABLE. WE ARE USING THE CHAIR WITH A PARKINSON RESIDENT. HE WANTED TO FALL OUT OF HIS REGULAR WHEELCHAIR. THE ROCK-KING HAS SOLVED THAT PROBLEM. WE ARE PLANNING TO ORDER 3 MORE ROCK-KINGS! " Quotes

Quotes I wanted to share with you how much my mom enjoys her chair..... After only being in it a few minutes, she caught on that it rocked and rocked herself to sleep in minutes..... While my mom does talk, it usually doesn't make much sense but the staff has commented to me and my Dad on how much more she seems to smile and also seems a little more talkative. It brings us happiness because she seems to be enjoying it so.... I had told my Dad she would be rocking for Christmas and she was. :)) Quotes

Quotes Another success story on the second one, too. Behaviors have decreased - he has gone from 5 out of 7 days of severe agitation to maybe once a week. I know this is hard to imagine but these chairs are very calming. They are wonderful for our residents. With the first resident that used the Rock King, I had tried high backs, Brodas, Geri-chairs, Restraints, Pommel cushions, Dycem, adaptive equipment - everything I could think to do and nothing calmed him or kept him positioned. He yelled most of the day and constantly slid out of the chair or propelled into walls or worse. Since we put him in the Rock King wheel chair he sleeps much of the time (with no med changes) and when awake no longer yells. He rocks his chair and appears content with this motion. The second chair, when we put the patient in it, relaxed and slept the whole day and continued to repeat this, and we have been able to decrease his medications! He smiles and rocks with no further episodes of agitation. Quotes

Quotes I want to take the time to thank you for the many years you have served our facility St.Otto's Care Center. I have been Director of Nursing at St. Otto's since 1993 and over the years you and your team has always been there to help in any way. SMT has helped trouble shoot over the phone, drop off rentals while our stand or lift devices are being serviced, been very competitive with pricing and always willing to do what it takes to keep our devices working to better care for our residents and keep our staff safe. Your stand and lift device are easy to use, durable and SMT is always looking at ways to make them better to meet our facilities needs. SMT has also been very support of MNDONA (Minnesota Director of Nursing Administration) attending our conferences and being a sponsor. Thank you and your team for the great customer service you have given us over the years and I know our partnership will continue into the future. Quotes

Quotes The Team at SMT have been a pleasure to work with. We have been using SMT lift devices for over 20 years in our long term care center. We have six Sit-to-Stands and three Full body lifts that we use every day in our facility. The Customer Service Team and Sales Team are prompt and willing to help troubleshoot and correct problems that occur. The lifts are very reliable and easy to service. I would recommend them to others. Jim Quotes

Quotes We have a resident living with us who was extremely anxious and due to a diagnosis of advanced dementia, she would try to ambulate unassisted and often fall. We implemented the Rock-King X3000 with her and she has had only one fall in 4 months. She sits in her chair and gently rocks which seems to help with her anxiousness. Another success story involves a gentleman with dementia who had positional issues in a standard wheelchair. When staff would reposition him, he would become combative as he didn't understand our intentions. After the interdisciplinary team reviewed him, it was decided we would try a Rock-King X3000. He was so comfortable and relaxed in it and utilized the rocking motion. This seemed to calm him. After a recent hospitalization, he returned in a standard wheelchair. The moment staff assisted him into his Rock-King chair, he stated "I'm home". This melted my staffs' hearts! Thank You SMT!!! Quotes

Quotes We currently have three residents using the Rock King. We have used the Rock King in all three cases to eliminate a restraint and our success has been tremendous. Not only did we eliminate the restraint, but the Rock King improved the quality of life for the residents. One resident in particular was previously agitated and difficult to redirect. With the Rock King, she is much calmer, easier to redirect and enjoys a much greater quality of life. The staff have discussed with me the notable difference in this resident's behavior. Quotes

Quotes WE ORDERED THE CHAIR FOR ONE OF OUR ALZHEIMER'S RESIDENTS. SHE HAD BEEN IN A SMALL CONFINED UNIT. WHEN THAT UNIT CLOSED, SHE WOULD WHEEL HERSELF THROUGH OUT OUR FACILITY IN A STANDARD WHEELCHAIR, BUT WAS RUNNING INTO OTHER RESIDENTS AND OBJECTS IN THE HALL. SHE WOULD BECOME VERY FRUSTRATED AND ANXIOUS. THE VERY FIRST AFTERNOON SHE WAS IN THE NEW ROCK-KING WHEELCHAIR, SHE FELL ASLEEP IN MINUTES!! SHE CURRENTLY IS ABLE TO WHEEL HERSELF THROUGH OUT OUR FACILITY SAFELY AND WHEN SHE BECOMES TIRED, SHE JUST LEANS BACK AND STARTS ROCKING. WE HAVE BEEN VERY PLEASED WITH THE NEW ROCK-KING WHEELCHAIR, AND PLAN TO ORDER MORE! Quotes
