The new ultra lie-low bed can be raised to positions of up to 80 cm to provide residents of care facilities added safety and make the work of nursing staff and caregivers easier. The bed features newly developed aluminium lifting columns in the back and lower leg section, leaving space below for grab rails and lifters.
While traditional lie-low beds with sleep positions of around 25 cm mean added safety for restless sleepers, even falls from this height are still likely to cause injuries. “As a result, nursing staff and caregivers often have to lay out mats at night to reduce the height of falls, especially for the elderly,” Klaus Bock says. “With the practico ultra low, unintentional falls while sleeping are more like rolling out of bed. This floor-level bed makes such safety measures a thing of the past.” The new ultra lie-low beds from Hermann Bock GmbH will be available from summer 2015.
