Stiegelmeyer products can contribute to maintaining, promoting and regaining mobility and independence.
Falls and fall-related injuries are common in older adults, have negative effects on functional independence and quality of life and are associated with increased health related costs. The aftermath of a fall leads to further impairments, which can also have social consequences. If people lose confidence in their own mobility as a result, they will avoid activities for fear of falls. Reducing the risk of falls and minimising the impact they have on peoples’ lives therefore also plays a role when it comes to quality of life.
The use of floor level beds combined with appropriate bedside cabinets can be an effective means of reducing the risk of falls.
Tailored to the needs of residents with higher risk of falls:
For residents with dementia, the ability to find their bearings is of particular importance. At the lowest height setting though, it is more difficult for them to re-establish important visual links to objects. Combining the bed with a low bedside cabinet that is within easy reach and sight, provides orientation and is accessible from the bed without leaning out which helps to reduce the risk of falls.
More than lower bedside cabinet
Floor level beds play an increasingly important role in care. But up to now, the choice of suitable lower height bedside cabinets was limited and offered very few individual features. With the Aparto brevo, there’s no need to make compromises any longer: from a spacious overbed table to a slide-out table, it allows for many supporting functions that would otherwise only be found on standard models. Residents in a floor level bed can effortlessly reach for a glass on their bedside cabinet or switch the reading lamp on – a big bonus when it comes to quality of life.
