Total Lift Bed

Advanced profiling bed

Progressive upright positioning at the touch of a button.

Prolonged bed rest and immobility of critically ill patients can lead to severe physical deconditioning, significant loss of muscle mass and increased muscle weakness that can result in extended time spent in both the ICU and the hospital¹. Recognition of the long term physical and psychological consequences of prolonged immobility has resulted in early mobilization being advocated for ICU patients². While early standing and weight bearing is a desirable goal, achieving this consistently with critically ill patients can be a challenge for caregivers. Using only one or two caregivers, the Total Lift Bed™ can progressively move patients to full standing and weight bearing to aid rehabilitation early in the acute phase of critical illness.

Complying with early mobility protocols
• Without leaving the bed, patients who need a graded transition from bed rest to supporting their full body weight, can be progressively moved to the standing position.

Patented Foot Lifter™ Footboard
• When the tilt function is activated, the patented Foot Lifter moves towards the patient’s feet. When contact is made the bed begins gently tilting to the desired angle or weight bearing ratio while maintaining the patient in position to help avoid the need for repositioning. The Foot Lifter will automatically adjust to become flush with the floor for patient egress from the bed if appropriate.

Safety during movement and while standing
• A flexible strap system helps secure the patient in position during movement to the upright position.

Patented weight bearing control system
• As the bed tilts, the change in weight bearing achieved by the patient is displayed on the Foot Lifter footboard. This visual feedback helps caregivers to monitor progress, and set milestones against rehabilitation and mobility objectives.

Flexible positioning
• In addition to progressive standing and weight bearing, the Total Lift Bed offers flexible patient positioning to help with care procedures and patient mobilization. It also allows for Tredelenburg position which provides head down positioning for selected care procedures.

Skin protection
• The integrated five zone pressure redistribution surface provides caregivers with a choice of low air loss or alternating pressure options to help in the prevention and management of pressure injury. Mattress firmness can be altered using the comfort controls.

In bed chair position
• The in bed chair facility helps orientate the patient to a more upright position with legs down between standing episodes. The foot board’s position can be adjusted from the handset to accommodate different patient needs.
