5000 ultra low hospital bed

Patients in today’s healthcare arena are older and more vulnerable, yet clinicians still want to get patients mobilised at the earliest opportunity. The 5000 ultra low hospital bed offers a platform that is low enough to create a safe environment that will encourage independent and safe mobilisation without the risk of falls. It also achieves safe and easy patient positioning, is simple to use and easy to clean.

High levels of reliability combined with a robust frame enable a 10-year warranty to be offered.

Independent testing has demonstrated that our range of ultra-low beds create zero patient migration during articulation, protecting patients’ skin and reducing the potential for manual handling injury in nursing staff as they no longer need to reposition patients back up the bed.

Key Features

  • Ultra-low height of just 21cm minimises potential injury from falls. A custom exit height can be programmed.

  • The backrest lengthens as it rises, which reduces sliding hence reducing shear and friction.

  • Full cardiac chair position can be achieved using one button. Also offers electric Trend/reverse Trend and CPR.

  • Excellent access for all designs of hoist.
