Reducing bed falls and preventing injury is a top priority in care environments. The FloorBed® solution improves quality of life for the user, helps balance carer workload and can help reduce costs.
At its lowest setting, FloorBed® is just 7.1cm high - similar to a tennis ball, minimising serious injury if users fall out of bed. FloorBed® rises to full nursing height for care duties.
At just 7.1cm, FloorBed® 1 is little higher than a tennis ball, greatly reducing the risk of injury from falls. It rises to full nursing height to facilitate care tasks and offers comprehensive functional and clinical benefits to maximise user safety. The FloorBed® has all the profiling functions of a standard nursing bed.
With an ultra-low mattress platform giving a height of only 70 mm, the FloorBed® 2 significantly reduces the risk of injury if users roll out of bed. FloorBed® 2 raises to 800 mm which facilitates a safer working height for taller carers. The low head and footboard enable access for care tasks such as hair care and lower limb dressing. Low head and footboard will also facilitate access to sliding sheets at the head or foot of the bed allowing single carer use to reposition a person up or down the bed.
FloorBed®1 Plus has weight capacity of up to 35 stone. The additional 150 mm width gives extra space which may be required when turning. The extra width is particularly beneficial when there is not adequate space for the full width of a bariatric bed or if carers would struggle to reach across a bariatric bed to carry out care tasks.
