Innova bariatric bed
Healthcare equipment supplier Innova Care Concepts has partnered with Canadian manufacturer, Rotec International, to bring to the UK hospital and care sectors the only bariatric bed on the market with a load capacity of 500kg.

The ultra-low profile Interlude 500 bed stands up to 21cm from the ground, reducing the risk of falls while making it easier for special needs patients to enter and exit the bed, improving their autonomy.

It is also equipped with an integrated scale and a bed exit detection system.

According to the manufacturers, recent years have proved that one-size-fits-all solutions are no good when public health challenges vary from one individual to the next.

The Interlude 500 adapts to individual patient needs as well as matching the weight capabilities of overhead hoist systems to aid with moving and handling.

The bed offers easily expandable options to accommodate different mattresses, emergency battery backup, quick connect components to ensure optimum efficiency on busy wards, remote control with built in nurse call, and an antimicrobial easy to clean powder coated steel structure.

Richard Harris, Sales Director for Rotec International commented: “When caring for patients of size in an acute care setting, one of the greatest challenges is to ensure that the patient is treated like any other patient – with the dignity and respect they deserve, giving patients a greater sense of self-sufficiency.

“The Interlude 500 offers caregivers the ability to maintain dignity for patients of size, by providing a care setting with a bed designed to resemble a standard hospital bed.

“Variable range of widths and lengths to provide flexibility to accommodate an extensive range of patients sizes.”

Joe Hulbert, Sales Director for Innova Care Concepts added: “We are always looking for the latest innovations in healthcare.

“Currently, in hospitals and care settings the demand for bariatric equipment is ever increasing with more and more pressure placed on care givers to support a wider range of bariatric patients.

“We are very pleased to begin our partnership with Rotec International. The Interlude 500 is an advancement in bariatric care, with its industry-leading features like extra low patient positioning, which can significantly reduce the risk of injuries in case of falling out of the bed and compatibility with a 500kg overhead hoist lift.”

Having enjoyed significant growth over recent years and diversifying into homelifts, Yorkshire-based Innvoa Care Concepts supplies a wide range of equipment and services for clinical negligence and personal injury clients, including power wheelchairs, hoist systems, pressure care mattresses, and bathroom adaptations.

Last May, the firm launched InnovaLive – a free online training service to cover how to incorporate patient hoists and hydrotherapy pools into healthcare environments.
