The advantages of the MultiFlex+ safety sides on the Puro – Part 2
The safety sides MultiFlex+ of our hospital bed Puro offer many possibilities for everyday work on the ward. Magdalena Höwelkröger, a trainee in product management at Stiegelmeyer, explained the simple basic operation of the safety sides in the first part. Now she shows how individual settings can increase the patient's well-being and mobility.
Diagonally lowered safety side bars give the patient a feeling of safety and spatial orientation. To do this, press the button on the support element on the side where you want to lower the bars (left picture). At the same time, pull the upper bar slightly upwards on that side to release its anchorage (right picture).
Now you can lower the upper bar diagonally. The lower bar moves automatically (left picture). Keep the button on the support element pressed to fold it down to the side (right picture).
If the safety side is only diagonally adjusted on the head-side, it offers discreet protection and leaves plenty of space for unhindered entry and exit (left picture). Depending on the needs and wishes of the patient, many other variations are possible, e.g. a v-shaped adjustment (right picture).
Flexibility is also ensured by the advantage that the bars can be raised in two stages. In this case, the head-side safety side at the front is on the first level and gives the patient a feeling of safety without obstructing his view.
On the second level, the head-side safey side already offers considerable protection (left picture). If the caregiver additionally raises the foot-side safey side support, this protection is even standard-compliant, as all elements together cover more than 50% of the mattress base (right picture). The patient can still stand up effortlessly while supporting himself on the support elements. Thus the Puro contributes to the important early mobilisation in the hospital.
The four elements of the safety side can be adjusted completely independently of each other. This makes it easy to allow free entry and exit on one side of the bed and completely shield the other side. The bed thus adapts ideally to the room layout.
