Interlude Hospital Beds

Interlude 500 bariatric bed

Introducing the New Interlude 500

The only bariatric bed that can drop to 21cms off the ground while supporting a weight of 499 kgs, the Interlude 500 is advancing bariatric care with a medical bed that significantly increases the mobility and autonomy of the patient, while facilitating the work of healthcare givers.

The Interlude 500 medical bariatric bed combines both the form of a modern design with the functionality needed to assist care givers in giving superior levels of care to patients up to 80st/499kg in weight. It helps to reduce the risks associated with the manual handling of this patient group. Its built-in scale makes weighing easier, while its supporting capacity, robustness and bed exit detection system make it a safe and easy-to-use option. Aesthetic and enjoying a wide spectrum of length and width adjustments, the Interlude 500 is also an attractive option for standard weight patients.

The Interlude range truly makes a difference to both staff and patients.

Standard Features

The Interlude adjustable hospital beds range as designed and built to help with every aspect of patient care and comfort. It’s well-known that synchronise movement of thorax and leg sections reduces shear, pressure, and the risk of pressure ulcers. This is precisely why we want to make sure that our beds are equipped with built-in auto-regression, so that the bed and the mattress can move as one and exert a minimal amount of friction on the patient’s body. The Interlude range also includes a manual ratchet system or hydraulic gas strut adjustment on the leg section to facilitate a therapeutic position that helps to promote good circulation for long-stay patients. The backrest also has manual CPR quick release levers at both sides when needed in an emergency.

Our Interlude range also features:

  • Corner bumpers for protection of walls and furniture
  • Handy membrane controls and angle indicators built into siderails
  • Trendelenburg and Anti-Trendelenburg tilt and cardiac chair position
  • Mattress retainers
  • Extendable mattress platforms for taller users
  • Central braking system which is activated with a stainless-steel bar-pedal
  • Pull-out linen tray (doubles up as a useful table)
  • One handle quick release polypropylene head and footboards with quick-locking function
  • Advanced nursing control unit at the end of the bed
  • IV pole connection points at each corner
  • Narrower option available for tighter doorways
  • Paediatric models available


Options & Accessories

There are a variety of options and accessories for the Interlude range, including the following:

  • X-Ray plate 430x350mm
  • Balkan Frame in painted steel
  • Trapeze bar in painted steel
  • IV pole in painted steel
  • Emergency back-up battery
  • Extendable tray under footboard (linen shelf)
  • 4 Dual tread castors Tente (Ø: 150mm)
  • Night light under the bed
  • Foot pedal for height adjustment

One of the most popular additions to our Interlude beds is the fifth wheel option, which makes moving and turning the bed almost effortless. It’s completely automatic (so there’s no need to use a foot pedal), and it includes a damping system that absorbs any shock and avoids damage to the wheel when negotiating steps or uneven surface – like when moving the bed into a lift. What’s more, the 5th wheel has been cleverly constructed so that it’s conductive and can discharge any static electricity to the floor.

All our Interlude hospital beds blend in well with typical hospital furniture, ensuring that the environment looks and feels good.

Interlude Newcare

Available in Basic and Advanced models, the Interlude Newcare hospital beds utilise a four-bar linkage ‘scissor’ lifting system, which provides stability along the entire length of the bed. The Newcare Basic includes metal concertina siderails and a standard user hand control, making it a trusty, reliable option or any care environment.

However, if you’re looking for something a little more sophisticated, the Advance model incorporates the signature Interlude siderails with the built-in user controls, a more advanced nurse control unit, central braking, integral length adjustment, and an X-ray ready backrest. The Advance also has clip-off mattress platform sections for easy of cleaning.

Interlude Newcare V3

The Newcare V3 is the one bed you can have customised to your exact needs. Incorporating all the benefits of the other two models, the V3 takes it one step further to become one of the most feature-rich hospital beds on the market. We’ve upped the safe working load, and have re-modelled the siderails to be more robust and offer more accessibility below the bed so that hoists and other equipment can be used with ease. With heightened user-friendliness and aesthetics, the V3 has all you could ever need. Please note that paediatric sizes are also available.

As quality hospital bed manufacturers, we understand exactly what to include on our products to make life easier for patients and carers.

Interlude TechnoPlus

The TechnoPlus combines the benefits of all the other Interlude models with its column height adjustment to create a stunning, user-friendly hospital bed. IP rated as “dust tight” and protected against powerful jets of water, the TechnoPlus is prepared for any hospital or high dependency care environment.

The rectangular shape of the columns, along with the lower joint, prevents torsion that can damage the columns when the load is unequal. With a mattress platform height adjustment range of 42 – 82cm, the TechnoPlus can facilitate almost any user to the caregiver’s satisfaction. The TechnoPlus hospital bed can be specified to include an advanced built-in weigh scale system with digital display and controls integrated into the siderails. This forward-thinking technology also includes a bed exit alarm to alert nursing staff when a patient is getting up from the TechnoPlus.

Interlude HiTech

As the name suggests, the HiTech is a cutting-edge top-of-the-range quality hospital bed. Using similar column height adjustment mechanisms like the TechnoPlus, the HiTech features three columns to enable the electric lateral tilt function to be used to incline the mattress platform to the side by up to 30° in either direction. This helps massively with turning the patient and carrying out hygiene procedures. Like the TechnoPlus, the HiTech can be manufactured with an integrated advanced weigh scale facility.
