Curbell Announces New Gen 4 Digital Patient Handset Line

ORCHARD PARK, NY, November 1, 2008. Curbell Electronics, Inc. is pleased to announce the addition of their Gen 4 Digital Patient Handsets to their nurse call product line.

Curbell’s new Gen 4 Digital Patient Handsets line was designed from customer feedback to help address patient satisfaction, oxygen safety and infection control needs and concerns. The new patient handsets are ergonomic and lightweight, like the remote controls patients have at home, with larger buttons that are easy to locate and press.

To address oxygen safety concerns, UL listed Gen 4 Patient Handsets have been tested with their respective nurse call systems to verify that they can be used in an oxygen-enriched atmosphere. The patient handsets are also sealed to the IPX7 rating, to help prevent fluid-based contaminants from getting into the patient handsets where they could ultimately be passed from patient to patient.

Gen 4 Patient Handsets can be integrated with most nurse call systems and hospital-grade TVs and have the flexibility to meet facility wiring requirements. The patient handsets can also be easily reprogrammed by hospital staff for use with multiple TV brands within the facility, for seamless integration, and are available with analog or digital volume, a stereo headphone jack, and up to six auxiliary buttons to control priority nurse call, lighting, temperature, drapes, or other in-room features.
