The addition, as standard, of mattress compensation technology prevents one from sliding down the bed and thus reduces shear and friction. It comes with mesh of ABS decking panels which can be removed for easy cleaning. The bed come with 360° movable castors that include central brake with straight running function and soft lock brake mechanics. The side rails on each side are in two separate sections, head section and foot section (also known as “split rails”). The head section can be left up as a mobility aiding grab rail and the foot section lowered thus allowing for the optimal transfer positioning in and out of the bed. The side rails swing out to be lowered or raised via a slide button mechanism and automatically lock in place when raised. An alternative long side rail system is available – same as on the Melanie or a combination of one side with adjustable long rails and the other side with split fold-able rails.
This bed is highly suitable for patient transport. It can be moved at any height position and has a high degree of maneuverability.
