Split safety sides that are easy to use in everyday life and support patient mobilisation – in many cases this is the ideal equipment for a hospital bed. We have made this ideal a reality with the MultiFlex+ safety sides for our Puro. Magdalena Höwelkröger, trainee at the Stiegelmeyer-Group’s product management, shows the easy handling of the MultiFlex+.

Larger, faster, digital – the new Burmeier logistics centre in Hiddenhausen, Germany, has successfully started operations. Exciting months of planning are behind Deputy Sales Manager Irina Dietrich and her team. The move from Lage to Hiddenhausen was completed in just one week in mid-August. As Burmeier delivers up to 250 urgently needed beds for homecare every day, the interruption had to be kept as short as possible. In the meantime everything is on a very good course. Ms Dietrich explains the advantages of the new logistics centre with great conviction in an interview with the FORUM team.

Anyone who has come into contact with Stiegelmeyer or Burmeier regularly in recent years has been able to observe fundamental changes: The brands of our company now present themselves much more distinctly, the communication strategy has been modernised. Our trade fair booths, websites and brochures offer more information, better clarity, more distinctive colours, a new font – the corporate design of the Stiegelmeyer-Group is ready for the new decade. Our advertising agency scanlitho.teams from Bielefeld has played a major role in this change. Since the end of 2017 it has been our partner in many marketing matters.

Children and young people in hospital have special needs. Many young patients feel anxious outside their familiar home. Others let their temperament run free as usual. Children's and junior beds should therefore have a calming and cheerful effect and at the same time be particularly robust and safe. The latter is also regulated by a new EU standard for paediatric beds since August 2020 (we reported). Anyone wishing to equip their ward with standard-compliant beds of the highest quality will find two attractive new models at Stiegelmeyer.

Stiegelmeyer has been supporting the clinic clowns for years. The work of these artists, who inspire both children in hospitals and senior citizens in nursing homes, is close to our hearts. The clowns have been active in Germany for over 20 years. For 15 years there has been the umbrella association Clowns in Medicine and Nursing Germany e.V. based in Freising. Elisabeth Makepeace, chairwoman of the umbrella association, spoke with us about the different needs in nursing homes and hospitals, the challenges of the digital age and the long road to secure financing.

A lively temperament and curiosity are endearing characteristics of children. In hospital, however, lively behaviour can become a challenge when the young patients play in or in front of their bed. This is because children are not always sufficiently protected by the technical safety precautions for adults. Too great a space around the safety sides can become a problem, as can gaps and crevices where children might pinch their fingers.

All nursing homes and rehab facilities strive for a homelike, comfortable atmosphere. Good ideas for an appealing interior design are always welcome. But finding inspiring sample rooms with care beds and furniture is not so easy – especially as trade fairs are hardly being held at the moment. We at Stiegelmeyer therefore offer our customers large, elaborately designed showrooms. Several years ago, the showroom at our German headquarters in Herford was modernised, now the showroom at our Nordhausen location in Thuringia have followed.

Slowly but surely, hospitals all over the world are returning to normal operation. Their beds are ready for various patients and medical devices are needed throughout the facility. And as always, those responsible for logistics have to deal with dozens of tasks at the same time. But help is at hand: Bloc – the intelligent logistics system for beds and equipment – from Stiegelmeyer.
