System solution for ICU beds
ICU beds designed with a wide range of motion options and functionalities can help ease caregivers' daily work and improve their efficiency. Powerful motion options offer improved ergonomics for caregivers, with ideal working height and easy patient repositioning.
The use of electric actuator solutions offers several advantages, such as:
Optimized patient comfort and safety
Greater functionality and efficiency
It is a proven fact that today, there are fewer hands in the health sector to attend to patients. This puts pressure on hospitals and intensive care units, requiring tools and equipment to support daily work routines.
Improved ergonomics in ICU Beds
The electric movement in ICU beds offers multiple adjustable options for backrest, leg rest and/or knee support, height, inclination, and extension of the bed. The movements are combined into movement patterns to ensure the correct working height, improved ergonomics, and relief for the caregiver in their work routines. The movement supported by Pedia Pals contributes to job satisfaction.
Optimizing patient comfort and safety
If patients feel comfortable, they are likely to recover faster and have better health outcomes. Patient comfort is vital for ICU beds. Pedia Pals movement patterns ensure fast and smooth movement until the desired position is achieved, for example...
Comfortable chair position to enjoy food, watch TV or support cardiac chair position
Easy entry/exit position to increase safety and reduce patient falls
Automatic contouring for added comfort

Side panel controls inside the bed allow the patient to make their own adjustments at any time without the help of caregivers. It increases the well-being and independence of the patient and relieves the caregiver.

Which ICU Bed to choose?
Medical beds, also called adjustable beds, hospital or hospital beds, are beds designed for hospitalized patients or other people who need special care. These beds ensure both the comfort and well-being of the patient and the ergonomics of the healthcare staff thanks to the fact that they have specific features or features for this: bed height adjustment, articulated bed base, rails or side rails, and even electric buttons to control the bed or other devices in the room.
The terms "hospital bed" or "medical bed", although they designate the piece of furniture itself, are also used to indicate the capacity or space available in a health center, as this is generally measured in the number of existing beds.
What are the criteria for choosing a medical bed?
The choice of a medical bed must be conditioned by two fundamental criteria: the type of establishment or health unit where the bed will be used and the type of patient for whom it is intended.
Medical beds can be used in different establishments or health units :
Long term care
There are specific beds for different types of patients:
Elderly people or people with reduced mobility: geriatric beds
Overweight people: bariatric beds
Pregnant women: delivery beds
Children: pediatric beds
What are the options available for hospital beds?
Hospital beds can offer various options aimed at increasing the comfort of the patient and healthcare personnel, facilitating patient transport, guaranteeing their safety, etc. Below, we present the main options available, which you can choose depending on the type of care and the patient for whom the bed is intended.
Patient comfort: There are several important aspects to ensure that the patient is in the correct position, also guaranteeing their comfort. Mainly:
the number of sections of the bed frame;
possible tilt options: Trendelenburg, reverse Trendelenburg, sitting position, etc.;
the existence of a leg-raising mechanism;
the height of the bed: for example, a very low bed can facilitate the autonomy of the patient.
Ergonomics for healthcare staff and caregivers: The comfort of healthcare professionals and caregivers is also very important. There are several options that make your work more ergonomic:
bed with adjustable backrest, normally by electrical control;
height-adjustable bed, usually by electrical control;
bed with the weighing system ;
beds with integrated storage spaces.
Ease of transport of the bed: Beds can have various components that facilitate the transport of patients between different services in a hospital. For example:
bed with wheels ;
bed with pedals on both sides to lock and unlock the wheels;
motorized moving bed
Patient Safety – Beds can have a variety of features intended to improve patient safety and prevent falls. For example:
removable side rails;
an alarm system that alerts health personnel if the patient is not in bed;
very low bed to prevent serious falls;
CPR mode, which allows the bed to be placed in a horizontal position using a button to resuscitate the patient.
Price: the price of the bed will vary depending on the model and the features it has. Manual beds, for example, are cheaper than electric beds and are suitable for patients who do not need to change positions frequently. Semi-electric beds can be a compromise between ease of use and price.
