Because care is important to us

Intelligent sensor technology supports patients and care staff. In a hospital, every day is dedicated to making life easier for the patient and promoting recovery in the best possible way. Without human support, however, this does not usually work.

Care staff convey a feeling of safety and a sense of well-being. Similarly, these properties are reflected in the technology incorporated in our hospital beds.

The Out-of-Bed function integrated in the hospital bed transmits a digital signal if help is required. Every second that relieves the workload on care staff is also a gain for the patient. Only if products meet these requirements are we able to say they are "products for caring with heart and mind".

Safety that you see and hear

Hospital beds with the Out-of-Bed system automatically inform care staff as soon as a patient leaves his or her bed.

On request, a messaging function can be activated to send a message directly to the nurses’ duty room through the existing call system. The message delay can be set individually, such as to 15 or 30 seconds, or to 2 or 15 minutes.

The function is activated and controlled with the aid of a handset on the bed. Each time the Out-of-Bed function is started up, a safety lock is activated on the handset to prevent the patient from setting any functions.

The system lightens the workload of staff and provides extra safety for the patient.

How Out-of-Bed technology works

Getting out of bed safely at night

If a patient needs to leave his or her bed frequently at night, a permanent, non-glare light can be switched on under the bed. Combined with the Out-of-Bed system, the under bed light is activated automatically if the patient leaves the bed. The patient can get out of bed safely and will find his or her way back reliably without waking up other patients. Once the patient has returned to bed, the Out-of-Bed system will automatically turn the light off.

The patient can get out of bed safely and will find his or her way back safely without waking up other patients. Once the patient has returned to bed, the out-of-bed system will automatically deactivate the light.

LCD handset

The LCD handset has a clear display and only three buttons. This makes it particularly easy and intuitive to use.

Dimmed permanent backlighting makes the controls easy to see at any time of day or night. The handset is very robust with its slim, stylish design.

With the EasyCare function, these functions can be used at the nurses’ level without changing the blocking status for the patient. This saves nursing staff a lot of time and increases the level of safety.

Using it is child’s play for the patient (level 1)

This level displays only the functions that are approved for the patient. With the aid of three buttons, the handset can also be operated by patients with severe physical disabilities.

Special functions for care staff (level 2)

An own operation level for the care staff offers all necessary bed adjustment functions. In addition, functions for the patients may be specifically locked and released.

Service functions for the technician (level 3)

This technical staff level allows specific settings and adjustments to be carried out to the bed. Potential problems can also be quickly solved using the integrated error analysis.

Integrated collision protection

The height adjustment of the beds works quickly and powerfully to guarantee time-saving operation. If, due to lack of attention, something is in the way when the bed is raised, this could damage the bed and the furnishings.

For this reason, a collision emergency switch is integrated in the wall deflection rollers. This switch automatically stops the height adjustment function as soon as an obstacle is in the way.

The programmable height-adjustment

The height adjustment can be limited in both directions. For example, the height of the windowsills, the wall installations and power sockets can be entered as a maximum or minimum height. As a result, collisions with these obstacles will never occur again.

In this way, fall-prone patients can also be prevented from raising the bed too high. This is a further important element of fall prevention.


Comfortably calling up the right position

With the aid of the memory function, certain standard positions are easy to pre-programme and recall by care staff. As a result, the favourite position can be saved for each individual patient. In addition, other individual bed positions are repeatedly used as a standard in the daily hospital routine .

These "bed profiles“ for therapy, diagnosis, breakfast or cleaning can be memorised and called up at the touch of a button. With this memory function, the care staff saves time since the laborious re-adjustment of the bed is not necessary.

Essentially better

The Out-of-Bed-System

  • Orientation through optional underbed light
  • considerably reduced risk of falling at night without fixations
  • Information to the nurse after a fixed time interval between 15 seconds and 15 minutes, thus few false alarms directly after getting up
  • Fast support for patients at risk of falling

Safety provided by brake signal

Modern movable hospital beds are equipped with an acoustic brake signal. If the power plug is connected, these beds will detect when the brake is not engaged. Consequently, various dangers can be avoided, such as falls when leaving or returning to bed, or leaning against the unbraked bed.

Similarly, maintenance costs for power cables and sockets can be reduced thanks to the audible alarm which makes it impossible to forget to unplug power connections before moving the bed.
