Corus Wide Community Profiling Bed

SKU: COR2400

Product description

The Corus wide community profiling bed has a low height of 30cm and is a 4ft wide bed designed for larger users or just to have more space in bed than a single width bed. The simple to use variable height allows greater independent movement and transfers.

A unique approach

The Corus profiling bed has been designed using 4 years’ of research on anthropometric data based on the Adult Social Care Survey 2009-2012. Over 227,000 people were surveyed looking at their age, gender, height, weight and mobility.

The findings from the survey showed:

• 175cm average height
• 80kg average weight
• Over 75% are over 64 years old
• 65% female
• 90% either cannot or have difficulty getting out of bed

By using this data we have been able to design a quality profiling bed which offers exceptional comfort and support to all users.

Enhanced comfort and support

• Enhanced shear and friction reduction
• Excellent postural support
• Better respiratory positioning
• Exceptional comfort

Dementia friendly profiling bed

• Appearance is in harmony with a domestic setting
• Uniquely styled head and footboard design, enhancing patients’ visual field, reducing the “enclosed feeling” that some beds generate
• Rounded corners for safety
• Appropriate height to prevent injury from falls
• Stable four-point design as dementia users tend to use the bed as a mobility aid
• 30 point Light Reflectance Values (LRVs) between the grey rounded corners and head and foot panels can be achieved, making it easy for the visually impaired to see the edge of the bed

User-friendly design

• 1 person assembly
• No tools required for assembly

Infection Control

• Open bed design allows easy cleaning
• Powder coated frame is smooth and easy to wipe clean.

Easy maintenance

• Plug and play maintenance, all controls are easily accessible.
• Head and foot panels are removable by one person and easily replaced.
• Interchangeable head boards – various colour options are available.

Moving and Handling

• Moulded hand grips for safe and secure manoeuvring of the bed.
• Comfortable hand grips also act as a protective feature for the bed against walls and furniture.

Transport

• 100mm castors for easy transportation
• Lightweight design
• Individual sections are less than 20kg for safety when assembling
