Citadel Plus Bariatric Care System
Citadel™ Plus Bariatric Care System provides a safe, dignified environment for plus size patients and their caregivers.
As healthcare facilities treat a rising number of plus-size patients, the need for specialized products and care processes is increasing.
Citadel Plus is a purpose built bariatric bed, designed to deliver value, and safe dignified care for plus-size patients and their caregivers.
Built on the same universal medical bed platform as other Arjo hospital beds, Citadel Plus benefits from consistent use of technology, user interfaces and accessories which help reduce training and service requirements for staff, and increase economies of scale and value to healthcare facilities.
As the aesthetics are visually consistent with other Arjo beds used in the care environment, Citadel Plus is difficult to distinguish as a bariatric product, thus helping preserve patient dignity while delivering the functionality required to manage patients weighing up to 1000 lbs (454 kg).
With features such as variable bed width expansion, designed to comfortably accommodate different size patients, and Power Drive* helping to reduce both effort required and risk of injury when bed and patient transport are necessary, Citadel Plus provides a great solution for the heart of a bariatric care program.
Facilitates one person transport of patients weighing up to 1000 lbs (454 kg) depending on hospital protocol.
VariZone Patient Movement and Exit Detection
This state-of-the-art technology can help alert caregivers to unplanned patient egress from the bed. With a choice of ten settings, alert sensitivity can be altered to suit patient and caregiver requirements.
AES (Anti-Entrapment System)
AES detects obstructions under the sleep deck during bed articulation and stops the downward movement of the bed to help prevent injury to a person or damage to other equipment.
Variable Width and Length
Citadel Plus™ incorporates three width expansion options from 34 in (86.4cm) to 48 in (121.9cm). Variable width and length provides flexibility to accommodate different size patients and enables easier access through doorways and in elevators during transport. Width adjustment is always available even during power outages.
Provides visual alerts on four bed safety conditions to help staff provide a safe environment especially for those patients identified at risk from falls:
- side rail position
- brake status
- bed height
- whether VariZone is armed
Integrated weigh scale
Easy to use weigh scale weighs up to 454 kg (+/- 500 g). The Auto-Compensation feature allows objects to be added or removed without impacting the patient’s weight reading. Patient weight is visually displayed for 10 seconds only, to help protect patient dignity.
Head of bed angle indicator
Digital head of bed angle indicator provides clear information to assist caregivers in appropriate patient positioning.
Automatic pause at 30 degree head elevation helps remind caregivers when this important angle has been reached.
One Button Chair Position
The Citadel Plus can be articulated into a chair position, lowering the legs and abdomen to help improve patient comfort.
Designed specifically for Citadel Plus, the surface helps provide skin protection for plus-size patients. The pressure redistribution surface uses Self Adjusting Technology™ to automatically adjust cushion pressures in response to patient movement.
- Sloped heel section with visco-elastic foam helps transfer weight off the vulnerable heel area
- Mattress size can be adjusted from 34 in (86.4 cm) to 48 in (121.9 cm) wide and from 80 in (202 cm) to 88 in (224 cm) in length. This provides an appropriate sized surface to accommodate patient need.
- Durable, waterproof, moisture vapor permeable cover with multidirectional stretch to help reduce skin shear and friction.
Skin IQ® 1000*
Microclimate Manager (MCM) provides a simple, effective solution for managing the skin microclimate of bariatric patients weighing up to 1000 lbs (454 kg). An optional single patient use powered mattress cover that utilizes state-of-the-art Negative Air Flow Technology™ to assist in managing the moisture, heat and humidity (microclimate) of the patient’s skin. Skin IQ 1000 can be used with a suitable bariatric pressure redistribution surface to help prevent and treat pressure injury.
