Caring for bariatric patients often requires the help of additional staff to ensure care tasks are completed but without appropriate equipment, this can place caregivers and patients at increased risk of injury. This is why the VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed can be lowered to just 21cm from the ground – making it the lowest bariatric bed in the world and enabling a much more comforting experience when transferring a patient.
Manufactured by Rotec International and distributed by Innova in the UK, the VersaTech 1100 ULB comes with the option to include VersaDrive intuitive technology. This motorised assistance system enables caregivers to move patients more easily with one push of a button, reducing the risk of caregivers straining to move patients between rooms and wards.
The VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed has an extra low patient positioning (patient surface height is 21cm) which significantly reduces the risk of injuries in case of falling out of the bed, especially during the night. The bed features a safe working load of 500kg, with the patient limit of up to 460kg, with the each part of the bed also being tested for weight limits (the bed is divided into 3 sections)
The bed can be easily expanded in width and can accommodate mattresses of 89cm, 97cm, 105cm and 120cm. With its ultra-quiet DC motor this bed helps to maintain a calm and relaxed environment. The VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed also has an emergency battery for temporary autonomy, 2 pairs of half-length composite side-rails which are easy to operate and maintain with quick connect components.
With its 125mm anti-static double wheels casters, the VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed is easy to manoeuvre around busy ward corridors and with a central brake, it can be operated by one pedal at the foot of the bed.
The foot pedals have a green and red indicators to ensure the operator knows when the brake is activated.
With the demand in busy wards as they are, the VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed has been built with convenient and ease of operation in mind with a lightweight head and footboard which can easily be removed, the frame is powder coated steel which is antimicrobial and easy to clean. It comes with patient remote control with auto-contour, patient control integrated into the bed side-rails with auto-contour, an underbed light and nurse call.
The VersaTech 1100 ULB Bed also has an easy to use nurse control integrated in the footboard, bed functions lock-out from the nurse control at the footboard, one-touch Trendelenburg adjustment and many other features which make this bed the ultimate in bariatric care.
