MMO 8000 bariatric ultra-low bed

Gait disturbances and immobility issues in obese patients place these patients at an increased risk of falls. In cases where the patient is able to mobilise from the bed, an ultra-low bed with the ability to set a custom-height position can provide an effective part of a falls prevention solution.

MMO’s focus is to develop beds with a platform that will lower to an ultra-low height from the floor, a feature that offers several benefits to the patient and caregiver. Patients who are restless, confused and vulnerable whilst in the bed and are at risk of falling out the bed can be nursed at an ultra-low height, thus ensuring that injury is minimised.
