Medstrom announce UK bed manufacturing
Jane McLaughlin, 19 Dec, 2018
Medstrom Healthcare announced today that manufacturing of specialist profiling beds will commence in the UK in early 2019.
The ultra-low 5000 bed has achieved astonishing commercial success since its launch in 2015. Customers have recognised the many unique benefits offered to patients and caregivers, the main feature being a low and customisable height to prevent falls and promote safe mobilisation. Other features include a backrest design that protects patients’ vulnerable skin from shear and friction by eliminating migration down the bed and a unique ‘third generation’ brake, steer and castor design that promotes easy manoeuvrability. Selected by many UK NHS Trusts and Health Boards, Medstrom has seen record numbers of beds sold in 2018.
Medstrom will now manufacture the 5000 bed range at its brand new facility, Medstrom House, located close to the company’s headquarters in Castle Donington, Derbyshire and production is scheduled to commence in early 2019. The move will provide a number of benefits to customers and will also provide a level of security against the uncertainties and risks relating to Brexit. The move will also provide a boost to the local economy, creating a number of new jobs in the area.
