Ensuring that patients get the highest quality care is becoming difficult for ‘overstretched nurses and carers’, argues Innova Care Concepts, whose new Interlude Newcare V3 hospital bed features ‘multiple easy-to-use functions to ease the busy schedules of healthcare professionals’.
The company said: “Following rigorous re-design and trialling, the Newcare V3 has a variety of built-in features that will reduce time usually spent on navigating frustrating equipment.” Joseph Hulbert, Innova’s bed and mattress specialist, explained: “We wanted to create a bed that could do practically everything a nurse could need at the touch of a button.”
- Easy-to-use controls’ on the side that allow patients to choose their own ‘perfect positioning’. These can all be overridden by the foot end controls, which make it easier for nurses to determine the individual’s positioning.
- Double auto-regression in both the headrest and knee brake to stop the mattress from sliding, and keep patients comfortable.
- ‘Infection control-friendly’ features, including an HPL mattress platform, and a headboard releasable using one hand.
- Re-designed siderails that facilitate mobile hoist use when the bed is in its lowest positon, without compromising patient safety or siderail regulations.
