Patient falls are widely recognized as a significant healthcare risk, as well as a cost. Pain, cost, complication, extended rehabilitation stay – and even death – are just some of the dire consequences of a bed fall.
The risk of falling.
Patients who are at risk of falling are not protected from the impact of a fall if the bed only descends to a height of eight inches (20 cm). That distance to the floor – although appearing small and harmless – can still lead to the sustaining of serious injuries.
Avoid fall injuries.
On a floor-level bed endowed with a minimum height of less than four inches (10 cm), the gap from the bed to the floor is small enough to avoid the hazardous drop distance. Thus, the risk of bed-fall injuries is avoided, offering safety – as well as dignity – to the user. Our range of premium beds – featuring all state-of-the-art functions expected in today’s leading healthcare equipment – reduces patient´s risk of bed fall injuries to an unprecedented low.
