Hill-Rom has brought a new bed and therapy mattress to the UK market which is designed to drive patient safety and improve patient outcomes while also supporting caregivers in their jobs.
The HR900 Accella bed aims to aid NHS nurses by simplifying day-to-day tasks including the weighing and early mobilisation of patients.
The product brings together technology and design to enhance caregiver workflow, improving safety and allowing them to spend more time on face to face patient care.
The HR900 Accella is equipped with several features to simplify nursing tasks including an in-bed scale to weight and calculate BMIs accurately, a three-mode bed exit alarm, a one-touch side egress system and removable sleep-deck sections for easy cleaning.
The latest addition to Hill-Rom’s portfolio also includes a newly launched plug-in mattress which converts the HR900 Accella into the HR900 Accella Therapy.
This mattress offers the user new features which help to both prevent and treat pressure ulcers.
The HR900 Accella Therapy comes equipped with real-time pressure adjustment, controlled by the ‘internal I-mmersion pressure sensor’, which adjusts to each patient’s needs, according to their size, shape and position in the bed, without the need for caregivers to intervene.
James Rhodes, marketing manager, early mobilisation and falls prevention at Hill-Rom, said: “The introduction of the Hill-Rom HR900 Accella and Accella Therapy demonstrates how integrated technology can benefit both patients and caregivers, allowing beds to become the central care station for patients during their stay in hospital.
“These valuable additions to the HR900 range can help protect patients, speed up recoveries and assist us in managing increasingly complex conditions.
Hospitals face consistent challenges to improve patient safety, protect from infections, and other complications during their stay.
“We are excited to be able to introduce cutting-edge technology which will help to address some of these issues, as well support nursing staff by simplifying their day to day tasks.”
