Benmor Medical receives patent for innovative bariatric bed in the UK and Europe
Bariatric equipment supplier Benmor Medical has been granted a patent for its Aurum+ Bariatric Bed, entitled ‘Barrier for a Bed’, in the UK and Europe.
The Intellectual Property Office granted patent no. EP3315107 on the bariatric bed.
This decision adds to Benmor’s patent portfolio, joining the company’s existing patent for the features on its Deprimo Floor Level Bed. Benmor says this is an important milestone in the company’s history and the continuing improvements to the medical equipment it manufactures.
Peter Staddon, Managing Director of Benmor Medical, said: “We believe that our patented technologies allow us to deliver superior and distinctive products, while fulfilling our vision of creating successful bariatric equipment which will provide safety for a patient and improve the care delivered by Healthcare Professionals.”
Benmor says it designed the Aurum+ Bariatric Bed specifically for size, strength and practicality.
Key features of the Aurum+ bed, such as width adjustment, integrated weighing scales and patented adjustable safety rails, provide a safe environment within which to improve the moving and handling of larger patients up to 440kg.
Due to the complexity of a bariatric patient, there is a requirement to frequently move patients in and out of bed and administer care to a patient. According to Benmor, it is desirable for bariatric beds to have safety rails that are movable so that a patient can either exit the bed or a healthcare professional can access to the patient.
The new patent features on the Aurum+ Bariatric Bed range allows the user to store the stowable safety rails within the bed frame. When required, the safety rails can be easily pulled from the mattress platform, rotated 90⁰ upward and locked into position. To lower the rails, the process is reversed.
The rails allow the width of the bed to be increased/decreased, with the barrier rail elements moveable between upright or underbed stowed configurations.
