Young people and those newly in love dream of spending the night with their beloved partner. But over the course of a long marriage or relationship, the magic of the shared bedroom often diminishes. In surveys, up to 40 percent of all couples say they spend the night in separate rooms, and the trend is rising rapidly. Bed manufacturers have to adapt to this trend. With the partner bed, Stiegelmeyer now offers a solution that supports a more fulfilling partnership with clever ideas.

December is usually the time for good-humoured advice in the media: what to give for Christmas, what to cook, what clothes are in fashion? But this year everything is different. Those who are currently looking for advice and tips are asking about much more existential issues, for example: Can I even visit my mother in the nursing home for Christmas? Or my husband in hospital?

The hospital "O Evaggelismos" is one of the largest and most renowned in Greece. It is located in the popular Athens district of Kolonaki, with its magnificent embassy buildings and classic 1920s apartment-block buildings. The hospital was opened in 1884. The Wilhelminian-style façade of the old building has become the entrance to an area of modern new buildings, which tower like a large frame against the wooded hills on the outskirts of the city. Since this year, another novelty has been causing a stir inside the hospital: 809 modern hospital beds from Stiegelmeyer.

The Puro hospital bed meets many requirements. Equipped with the MultiFlex+ split safety side, it promotes patient mobility. If, on the other hand, maximum protection is permanently required when there is a high risk of the patient falling, a bed with full-length safety sides is a good choice. Magdalena Höwelkröger, trainee in product management at Stiegelmeyer, demonstrates the effortless operation of this variant.

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.

Anyone who is currently browsing through a specialist healthcare magazine will immediately be struck by a great lament: digitisation, e. g. in German hospitals and nursing homes, lags miles behind the technical possibilities, important key issues of the future are being neglected. At the same time, the manufacturers of medical devices see the great potential of the new technology, but in many areas, they realise that the market for digital products is still in its infancy. With the new "Connectivity Lab" in Herford, Stiegelmeyer has created an ideal environment for the development of interconnected beds. We spoke with Meik Eusterholz about the chances of success of this project. He works as business unit manager for the healthcare industry at UNITY, a renowned management consultancy for digitalisation.

Corona now puts a stop to these personal encounters – but not to our presentation of exciting products. This autumn, Burmeier will also be presenting new products and further developments that will make everyday life easier for specialist dealers and people in homecare.

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.
