The ultra-low lying position of the practico ultra low 9.5/80 from Hermann Bock, at only 9.5 cm above the floor, offers safety to restless sleepers – all without limiting their freedom of movement.

With the practico ultra low 9.5/80, Hermann Bock GmbH has created a whole new type of low bed. With its sleeping position of just 9.5 cm above the floor, this “ultra -low bed” reliably protects against falls and, at the same time, promotes a feeling of safety and security for sleepers. Using an auto-stop function, residents can adjust the bed to different preset bed heights between 9.5 cm and 37.5 cm. This allows even people with limited mobility to get in and out of bed on their own. Caregivers can also raise the bed up to a care height of 80 cm.

New ultra low bed mobilises people in need of care

“We designed the practico ultra low 9.5/80 to make everyday activities easier for both residents and caregivers alike. This has obviously allowed us to fill a real gap in care,” says Martin Mühlenkord, Sales Manager at Hermann Bock. “Since the first presentation of our idea in early 2015, we have been essentially overrun with orders from nursing homes and senior centres.”

First, according to Martin Mühlenkord, the new bed already meets the requirements of the new expert standards for mobility. Second, with sleeping heights adjustable to the centimetre and side rails that can be completely lowered, the bed provides reliable protection against falls without limiting freedom of movement. Should residents happen to slide out, they can get back into bed on their own. Third, the stable mechanics of the practico ultra low 9.5/80 – with its fully adjustable lying surface that can be moved to a number of different heights all the way up to 80 cm – helps caregivers to keep their backs healthy while working with patients. “The first test beds of this new type were delivered in late summer to customers worldwide, and the reviews have been extremely positive,” Martin Mühlenkord adds.
