bock shows barrier-free ultra-lie-low bed at Altenpflege 2016
Hermann Bock GmbH will present its barrier-free ultra-lie-low bed, practico ultra low 9.5/80, at the Altenpflege 2016 trade fair. So-called ultra-lie-low beds are distinguished from the more common lie-low or low-level bed by the ability to reduce the height of the lying surface to less than 10 centimetres when required. The ground-level lying position reliably protects residents from falls and their consequences, while promoting active mobility. That is because the low height of the bed makes it easier to get out of, and back into, bed at will. The practico ultra low 9.5/80 allows the resident to move the bed to common access positions between 9.5 and 37.5 cm. Nursing staff can also raise the lying surface to a safe working height of 80 cm – the side rails for the care position are integrated into the bed and can be fully lowered.
Nursing demonstration in Hall 19 at booth C80
In Hall 19 at booth C80 at the Altenpflege 2016 trade fair, which will be held from 8 to 10 March 2016 in Hanover, nursing trainer Sandra Skala will demonstrate how the new ultra-low bed can be used in practice. She will offer nursing staff tips about how to protect their backs when handling patients, and explain how the practico ultra low 9.5/80 can be used optimally to maintain and promote independence.
