Intelligent sensor technology supports residents and care staff.
At a care home, every day is determined by making the residents' lives easier and facilitating their recovery in an optimum way. However, this is usually not possible without human support.
The care staff conveys safety and a sense of well-being. These characteristics are likewise reflected in the technology of our hospital beds.
The Out-of-Bedfunction integrated in the hospital bed transmits a digital signal if help is required. Every second that the care staff is relieved by the system is also a gain for the patient.
Only if products meet these requirements, we can say that they are “products with heart and mind”.
The Out-of-Bed System
Care beds with Out-of-Bed-system automatically inform the care staff as soon as a resident leaves their bed. On request, a messaging function can be activated that sends a message through the existing call system directly to the care staff's room. The message delay can be adjusted individually, e.g. to 15 or 30 seconds, 2 or 15 minutes. The activation and control occurs with the aid of a handset at the bed. During each start-up of the Out-of-Bed-function, a safety lock is activated at the handset that prevents a readjustment of the functions by the resident. The system relieves the staff and provides additional safety for the resident.
This is how the Out-of-Bed-technology works:
The reading lamp
Residents in the care home especially need light for orientation at night when they must leave the bed. Especially old and demented persons can orientate themselves much bett by a discreet lighting. The Out-of-Bed technology turns the reading lamp on, after prior activation, automatically when leaving the lying position. Thus, no long search of the light switch is necessary. The reading lamp also turns itself off again when the resident returned to bed.
The under bed light
If a resident needs to leave their bed frequently at night, a permanent and non-glare light under the bed can be switched on. Combined with the Out-of- Bed-system, the under bed light is activated automatically if the resident leaves the bed. The resident can get out of bed safely and will find their way back reliably without waking up other residents. Once the resident has returned to bed, the Out-of-Bed-system will automatically deactivate the light.
The new LCD-handset has a well arranged display and only three buttons. This ensures a particularly easy and clear use. Dimmed permanent backlighting makes the controls easy to see at any time of day or night. The new handset is very robust and has a slim and elegant design.
Easy to operate for everybody
Most simple operation for the resident (Level 1)
This level only shows the functions that are released for the patient. Due to the three buttons, the handset can also be operated by patients with strong physical limitations.
Special functions for the care staff (Level 2)
An own operation level for the care staff offers all necessary bed adjustment functions. Among other things, the out-of-bed system is controlled by this functionality.
Service functions for the technician (Level 3)
This level offers special bed adjustments and adaptations for the service technician. Furthermore, potential problems may be solved quickly on the basis of the integrated error analysis.
More flexibility in everyday care with battery power
Through a battery that automatically charges by the installed bed control system, the care bed can be adjusted network independently. The battery can alternatively be used by other beds if these beds are equipped with a battery-preparation.
