Activation of residents with the new Völker Vis-a-Vis healthcare bed.

Not all patients who cannot or do not want to leave their bed are necessarily totally immobile. Often, it is physical complaints or the experience of transfer, that prevent them from laterally getting out of bed over its edge, which often requires the assistance of two nurses. But the objective of activating care is always mobilisation, including self-mobilisation. And mobilisation is made much easier if the bed can be adjusted so that it forms a seat open to the front and patients can put their feet firmly on the ground. With a few exceptions and depending upon a patient’s self-care competence, mobilisation in such a bed, including activation is possible at any time.

The Völker low-level bed for people at a high risk of falling.

In electrically operated beds, residents and patients’ hand control units give them greater independent from nurses. While at the same time, staff gain more time and have less physical stress. Generally, motors in healthcare and hospital beds drive the height adjustment and the positioning of the various elements of the lying surface. From the very beginning, Völker has used motors and drive systems that were used on other beds. As a consequence, the company, in conjunction with these systems’suppliers, needed to gear these drives to the requirements placed by professional care in hospitals and nursing homes. Völker also had to keep the drives in line with the innovative progress characterising it's beds. It is this progress, based upon the nursing homes and hospitals’requirements and in particular their expectations of more safety, more reliability and additional applications that has driven this new development.
