Falls can lead to loss of independence, as well as having other negative implications for both the resident and the care facility. This versatile low-height bed can be lowered to 23 cm* and raised to a stable working height of up to 80 cm* to ensure a safe and ergonomic working position for caregivers.
The bed's close proximity to the floor when at its lowest position can give residents who are prone to falls a greater feeling of safety and may also reduce the occurrence and severity of falls.
The Volker 5384 is suited to the individual within their own home and to care homes requiring professional nursing beds for use within multi-occupancy environments.
It consists of separate elements that are split on both sides and can be adjusted to either one or two levels. This ensures that patients feel adequately protected from accidentally rolling out of the bed. As the siderails are highly versatile and robust, they can also assist mobilisation.
It detects even minor movements made by the patient. The lying surface then feeds these back through the mattress and to the patient’s body as tactile stimu-li. This continuous feedback increases the patient’s body perception, and pro-motes movement and blood circulation in the skin.
