GDV Technology have developed an add-on to a carebed, by the name SPB: Sore Protective Bed. The add-on can be used to automatised pressure relief and manual replacements. The add-on is a comfortable and safe solution for the citizen, but also a help for the personnel. The add-on is a simple mechanical device which is placed on a regular care bed, underneath a matress. The add-on consists of two wings which can be activated by a simple press on a button on the remote control. The other functions of the care bed work together with the add-on, which can be of especially great practical help to citizens with reduced respiratory capacity and heart problems. The two wings can be lifted to an angle of 80 degress at the same time, which makes it possible to shift the weight of the patient from one side to another in a comfortable and safe manner. The add-on can be programmed to lift the wings automatically, following a pre-defined pattern. The automated program can lift the wings to an angle of 30 degrees, therby relieving the pressure in a effective and comfortable manner. The add-on operates silently and the automatised pressure relief works in a slow manner. This means that the citizen can sleep undisturbed. Tests show that the add-on gives the citizen a comfortable and safe stimulation of the senses. The add-on has been tested alongside with other aid remedies and has been found to be very suitable in a number of situations. For instance, the construction of the add-on makes it possible to minimise skidding when shifting the weight of the patient from one side to another. The add-on can furthermore be a great help for citizens who act in a violent manner or who are hypersensitive. The personnel can use a minimal of ressources when moving the citizen and this is a benefit for both the citizen and for the work environment. The add-on also saves considerable ressources, since it can be operated by one person in a secure and safe way. GDV Technology’s new add-on is a revolutionary product which is simple to use and has the needs of the user at its core. The add-on provides pressure relief and prevents bed sores, while ensuring a safe work environment for the personnel.
