Innovative community and care home beds to offer flexibility and choice
Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare has invested in a new range of home care and residential care products, which offer innovative modular designs for care professionals.
Focusing on long-term care, the Bradshaw and Casa Elite ranges are two new electric profiling bed families that offer flexibility and choice, with cross compatible accessories and innovative modular designs.
The Casa Elite range provides flexible solutions for community, nursing and residential care settings. Drive has developed a pioneering design solution that enables the aesthetic of the Casa Elite bed to be upgraded with a modular head and footboard design that encloses the bed actuators in a few minutes.
This unique design allows for the head and footboards to be replaced and repaired quickly and easily, reducing product downtime during recycling, service and maintenance, the manufacturer adds.
The Bradshaw range has been developed for home care, nursing and residential care settings and provides a comfortable and safe sleeping environment.
Featuring an auto regressing backrest, the Bradshaw beds are designed to maximise resident comfort. The backrest section of the profiling bed raises and regresses away from the pivot point based around the sacrum, increasing the space in the sacral area to promote comfort, minimise shear and friction forces and support the reduction in torso compression.
Available in five different wood finishes, Drive says that the Bradshaw bed fits seamlessly into any room décor and style.
Optional leatherette padded inserts for the head and footboards can be added. These are available in six colours to complement and coordinate with any interior and the unique design allows these padded sections to be added to the bed at any time or easily changed to suit different decoration requirements.
Graham Turner, Vice President International Product Management and Marketing at Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, commented: “We have developed the Bradshaw and Casa Elite bed ranges with the aim of simplifying our bed solutions for our customers, without compromising on functionality, aesthetic or patient safety.
“By keeping our design and manufacturing in-house, we have ensured that quality and compliance are prioritised at each stage of development.”
Designed with safety and comfort in mind, these latest bed ranges offer a large selection of wooden and metal side rails, including the patented metal dipped side rails, developed to minimise excess pressure on the backs of the legs when transferring into or out of the bed.
Compatibility of these rails across other Drive DeVilbiss reduces training requirements due to familiarity with shared items, simplifying bed fleet management and maintenance, which is helpful for care professionals.
The Bradshaw and Casa Elite bed ranges have both undergone testing to meet the requirements for medical electrical equipment and are compliant with EN 60601-1, EN 60601-1-11 and EN 60601-2-52.
The Bradshaw bed range is available now, with the Casa Elite range coming soon, Drive has confirmed.
