“For the new practico alu SCC, we have once again optimised the ergonomic aspects of the (comfort) sitting positions so as to provide additional relief for residents and care givers, and to support measures that promote mobility, along with several other improvements,” says Martin Mühlenkord, Sales Manager at Hermann Bock GmbH. In addition, all beds manufactured by bock will soon be equipped for SMART Care Control® as standard. The new, modular sensor and control system is exclusively available from bock. It was developed in partnership with a leading international communications technology manufacturer.

SMART Care Control® gives care givers more time

“With SMART Care Control®, we are adding cutting-edge technology to the bed that will provide relief to care givers and operators in their daily duties,” says Sales & Marketing Director Robert Efinger. The system allows care givers to monitor the condition of all beds in their ward via a central wireless system, and modular sensors provide up-to-the-minute information using a wireless signal if a resident unexpectedly leaves the bed at night, for example. SMART Care Control® also enables the technical operation of all beds to be carried out centrally from the care technician’s desk. The combination of sensors and control functions also offers new options for support on an ongoing basis. “Our ambition is that ‘smart’ nursing care beds like the practico alu 25/80 SCC or the practico ultra low SCC will not only transmit signals from multiple sensors, but also be capable of reacting independently and supporting the residents’ mobility,” explains Robert Efinger.

The new practico alu 25/80 for SMART Care Control® will soon be available at specialised retailers or directly from Hermann Bock GmbH.
