Lying and sitting luxuriously: the comfort bed combiflex fc
With the comfort bed combiflex fc, bock is making modern bed technology accessible to private customers with high demands. This bed combines high-tech functionality with high-quality woods and elegant extras such as headboards upholstered in leather. There is a good reason why people call the beds' electrically adjustable settings “comfort positions”: Even healthy users will soon appreciate the particular comfort and functionality of this bed. The combiflex fc is targeted toward long-term use and remains flexible at all times: In the event of later care needs, it can be converted into a nursing care bed.
Comfort for healthcare supply stores: domiflex 2 with Push-and-Ready
At REHACARE, bock is presenting the domiflex 2 with Push-and-Ready technology for domestic nursing care. This bed was developed together with medical and home healthcare supply stores and can be set up or dismantled by a technician without tools in less than five minutes thanks to its innovative connection technology. This means that the domiflex 2 is ideally suited to the demands of the practice, as the periods of time in which nursing care beds remain on site are becoming shorter and shorter.
“The goal of our development partners from medical and home healthcare supply stores was not simply a more affordable purchase price, but rather lower costs over the course of the bed’s entire lifespan,” bock Sales Manager Martin Mühlenkord explains. This included, among other things, their instructions to avoid “loose” parts so that there are no screws that can be lost when the bed is repeatedly set up and taken down. For this purpose, Hermann Bock GmbH has developed the new, tool-less Push-and-Ready connection technique – and, in doing so, simplified the safety controls too. “Looked at over the long term, the new domiflex 2 with Push-and-Ready technique performs significantly better than all comparable beds,” says Martin Mühlenkord.
Live demonstration: practico ultra-low 9.5/80 and dino children’s nursing care bed
Up until now, ultra-low beds have been primarily associated with the field of residential or institutional nursing care. In comparison to low beds, which have been more familiar for longer, this bed category is characterised by a lying surface that can be lowered particularly low to the ground, to a level of approx. 9.5 cm. This lying position protects occupants from falls and their consequences and promotes active mobility. This means that it is not just easier to leave the bed, but also to get back into the bed self-sufficiently. Using the auto-stop function, occupants and care givers can independently set conventional access positions of between 9.5 cm and 37.5 cm and also raise the lying surface to an ergonomic working level of 80 cm.
The practico ultra-low 9.5/80 and the recently developed dino nursing care bed for children and adolescents, which bock is also presenting at REHACARE, are making the ultra-low bed product category available for domestic nursing care for the first time. The dino can be lowered almost to the floor, so that young patients can experience independent mobility in a safe and accessible environment. For this reason, the bedframe can be opened up along its entire length.
At REHACARE, bock is also presenting its beds for all living situations in action. Nursing care trainer Sandra Skala will be giving a practical demonstration on how to handle the new beds at the bock booth E25 in hall 5. She will give both end users and caregivers tips on protecting their backs when handling the beds, explain how the beds can be used comfortably and how they can help to maintain and promote occupants’ independence.
