With dino, Hermann Bock GmbH is setting new standards in nursing care beds for children. The bed features a modular design, allowing it to grow along with young patients for later use in adult life. “We worked with experts to develop the design,” Martin Mühlenkord from Hermann Bock GmbH explains. “dino is specially designed to meet the needs of young people who need care of varying degrees. The design is as safe and kid-friendly as possible.”

Among other features, the lying surface of the new bed can be lowered almost fully to the ground, allowing mobile children to get in and out of bed on their own. The split foldable guard doors feature perspex infills and wooden rails as well as a patented mechanism for optimum accessibility and to prevent the doors from accidentally being opened.

dino already complies with future EU standard EN 50637

Hermann Bock GmbH has developed the bed to comply with the future EU standard prEN 50637, which is currently being finalised. The new guidelines are intended to supplement standard EN 60601-2-52 for nursing care beds to include those for use by children. The lying surface features a four-section design that can be mechanically adjusted as well as a lifting mechanism to raise dino to a care height of 80 cm. “The lying surface and wood work surrounding it are raised at the same time, eliminating the risk of trapping and injuring occupants. With dino, even the smallest patients are always in good hands,” Martin Mühlenkord explains. Bumpers and modular vertical attachments for the bed’s wood work provide additional protection, making a wide range of different configurations possible. The dino nursing care bed for children will be available from August 2015.
