Benefits of the low rise function
In some circumstances, FloorBed™ can:
Reduces risk of injury following a fall from bed
Reduces requirement for side rails:
By making any potential fall height so low, the requirement for side rails is greatly reduced. This is significant for those users who may be at risk with the use of side rails.
Removes risks associated with side rails:
If side rails are not used, risks such as entrapment, impact injury and increase in the potential fall height may be reduced.
Reduce user agitation:
If side rails are used, users may become distressed and agitated. The user may attempt to climb over the side rails and may also exhibit other behavioural issues.
The adjustable bed height enables a user to place their feet flat on the ground when sitting on the edge of the bed, which may reduce the risk of slipping as they are able to obtain a supported seated position. This is of particular benefit to petite less-able users, and may enable them to carry out independent transfers. In some circumstances, this may reduce the requirement for manual handling equipment and/or carer assistance.
