The Australian Occupational Therapist, Frances Arnold, made a case study on the implementation of VENDLET on 49-year old Gavin. Gavin suffers from complete spinal cord injury, ABI, weighs more than 130 kg and has chronic pressure sores. The hospital staff had low confidence in assisting Gavin. Different equipment was trialed, but required either too much strength from staff, or were too small to handle Gavin's weight. The cost of care was spiraling as well as the cost of pressure sore treatment was significant.For Gavin, the implementation of VENDLET meant increased privacy and dignity and for the staff it meant better working conditions. Arnold’s study showed that the ROI on buying the VENDLET was broken in five weeks, due to reduction is staff required.
