Digital assistance systems

Everyday life in a nursing home is geared to making life just that little bit easier for residents and to helping them retain their autonomy for as long as possible. Usually, this cannot be done without human support. Care staff convey a feeling of security and a sense of well-being. These characteristics are also reflected in the technology incorporated in our care beds.

The sensors integrated in the bed transmit a digital signal if help is needed. Every second that relieves the workload on care staff is also a gain for the resident. Only if products meet these requirements can we say that they are "products for caring with heart and mind".

The Out-of-Bed system

As soon as a resident gets out of bed, staff are automatically informed by a system of sensors on the ‘smart’ bed. A messaging option can be activated to inform staff in the duty room through the existing call system. The message delay can be adjusted as desired to an interval such as 15 or 30 seconds, or 2 or 15 minutes. Activation and control are carried out with the aid of a handset on the bed. This handset can also be used to completely switch this function off. The system lightens the workload of staff and provides extra safety for the resident.

How the Out-of-Bed technology works

Reading lamp

Residents in a nursing home need light to find their way in the dark if they need to get up in the night. The elderly and people with dementia particularly benefit from discreet lighting. When the Out-of-Bed technology is activated, the reading lamp is automatically switched on when the resident is no longer lying down. This saves the need to search for the light switch. The reading lamp also switches itself off automatically once the resident has returned to bed.

With a rechargeable battery, this provides more flexibility in the daily care routine.

Using a rechargeable battery, which, when fitted, is automatically recharged by the bed control, the care bed can be adjusted even when not connected to the mains power supply. The battery can also be used on other beds if these are prepared for battery use.

Under bed light

If a restless resident frequently needs to get out of bed in the dark, a glare-free light under the bed can remain permanently switched on. The handset can be used to turn this under bed light on and off by hand. When used in conjunction with the Out-of-Bed system, the under bed light is activated automatically if the resident leaves the bed. This lets the resident get out of bed safely and easily find his or her way back to bed too. Once the resident has returned to bed, the Out-of-Bed system will automatically switch off the light.

LCD handset

The new LCD handset has a clear display and only three buttons. This makes for particularly easy and intuitive use. Dimmed permanent backlighting makes the controls easy to see at any time of day or night. The new handset is very robust with its slim, stylish design.

Easy to operate for everybody

Easy operation for the resident (level 1) This level only shows the functions that are enabled for the resident. With the aid of three buttons, the handset can also be operated by residents with severe physical limitations.
Care staff can lock out special adjustment options (level 2) for the resident but, thanks to EasyCare, they themselves can use all options of the bed without changing the locking status for the resident.
Service functions for the technician (level 3) This level offers special bed adjustments and adaptations for the service technician. Potential problems can also be quickly solved using the integrated error analysis.
