One of the major bariatric care issues faced by care professionals in the UK is injuries caused by moving care beds or helping lift patients who have fallen. To help tackle this problem, healthcare technology manufacturer, Rotec International, and their distribution partner, Innova Care Concepts, have launched a new version of the VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed, the lowest bariatric bed in the world.

The VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed with VersaDrive, a bariatric bed featuring a unique motorised assist system, allows caregivers to move patients more easily with one push of a button.  Not only does this help reduce the risk of caregivers straining to move patients between rooms and wards, it also saves time and improves efficiency with less staff required to push a bed.

VersaTech 1100 ULB VersaDrive Option

Integrated at the footboard of the bed, the VersaDrive is an advanced motorised wheel that uses sensors to detect the bed’s intended direction of movement. Using intuitive automation, the VersaDrive automatically adjusts the bed in the right direction to reduce strain and enable professionals to be in constant visual contact with the patient.

This unique evolution adds further functionality to the VersaTech 1100 ULB, which remains unrivalled as the only bariatric care bed with a safe working load of 500kg while remaining just 21 centimetres from the ground, enhancing fall-prevention protection. Manufactured by Canadian technology company, Rotec International, and distributed by Innova, the VersaTech 1100 ULB bed was originally launched in the UK in 2021.

Obesity in the UK

The obesity crisis remains one of the most pressing health challenges in the UK and across Europe. Recent research by The King’s Fund has revealed that obesity was a factor in over one million hospital admissions in 2019-2020. Care and supervision of obese individuals in hospital environments brings unique complications and challenges by comparison to patients who are not considered overweight. In fact, recent analysis predicts that over a third of UK patients will be considered obese by 2025.

Beyond its weight-bearing and low patient positioning attributes, the VersaTech 1100 ULB VersaDrive Option offers a range of unique and sector-leading features designed to assist and support care professionals better manage the needs of patients.

These include the ability to rapidly enter and exit the bed itself, a bed exit detection system, expandability to accommodate different sizes of mattress and importantly in the post-COVID environment, constructed using a simple-to-clean antibacterial steel structure to aid infection prevention.
