Patented Stowable Safety Rails – Enabling Greater Access for Patients and Carers

In 2020 we announced that the Intellectual Property Office had granted a patent on the design of our Aurum+ Bariatric Bed, titled: ‘Barrier for a Bed’ in the UK and Europe. The patented features on the Aurum+ Bariatric Bed range allows caregivers to store the stowable safety rails within the bed frame to carry out manual handling activities with closer access to the patient.

 
It is also highly desirable for safety rails to be movable so that a patient can exit the bed with ease thus supporting egress and ingress onto the mattress surface.  

 
Our newest addition to the Aurum bed range features this innovative patented technology. To position the side rails, they are easily pulled from the mattress platform and rotated 90⁰ upward and locked into position. To lower the rails the process is simply reversed.
 

The rails are integral to the bed platform and therefore allow the width of the bed to be increased/decreased with the barrier rail elements moveable between upright or underbed stowed configurations. 

 
“We believe that our patented technologies allow us to deliver superior and distinctive products, while fulfilling our vision of supporting Healthcare Professionals to safely care for their patients.”

Peter Staddon MD, Benmor Medical.


Benmor Medical continue to bring innovative design and engineering to the Healthcare sector. We strive to manufacturer equipment that will benefit carer safety, which in turn enables them to treat patients to the highest standards of care.

The Benefits of Bariatric Care Beds Designed and Manufactured by Benmor Medical

Aurum+ Bariatric Bed

The Aurum+ Bariatric Bed meets all the regular criteria of an acute bariatric bed with specially designed engineering features such as innovative stowable safety rails which can be retracted and stowed within the bed frame, providing greater ease when transferring a patient and easier access for a nurse to treat a patient. The features of the bed promote safety to the user and carer which have notable clinical benefits to comfort, safety and rehabilitation.

The Aurum+ Bariatric Bed has been designed for size and strength, powered by strong electric actuators, it can support patients up to 440kg (69st) and has a safe working load of 490kg (77st). The four-section, fully profiling mattress platform also has a width adjustment feature allowing the bed to be transported as a standard sized bed at 915mm (36″) and will therefore fit into lifts and through the majority of doorways. It also means that it can accommodate wider patients by extending the mattress platform to 1120mm (48″).

The bed has full electronic control and is operated by using either the patient or carer’s handset. The CPR override feature reduces the time taken to move the patient to emergency positions.

The Aurum+ bed has been developed through close consultation with patients, nurses, Manual Handling advisors, Occupational Therapists, Tissue Viability Advisors and Bariatric Care Advisors which contributes to safe moving and handling, effective bariatric care and in turn safeguard bariatric patients’ dignity and respect.

The Aurum+ Bariatric Bed has been designed so that it’s 4 innovative stowable safety rails (patent pending) can be retracted and stowed within the bed frame. This provides greater ease when transferring a patient on and off the bed and easier access for a nurse when administering patient care. The position of the safety rails has been specifically designed so that carers are able to retract the platform section closest to them, in order to get as close to the patient as possible thus reducing the risk of injury or strain to the care giver. The ability to get as close to the patient as possible ensures the safest treatment can be provided, reducing risk of injury to the patient and carer is one of our top priorities.

A bed of this design has the multifunctionality to benefit an array of patient groups including, but not limited to:

Bariatric Patients (over 25st)
Lymphedema patients
Patients with metabolic syndrome
Insulin resistant patients
Patients with Hypercholesterolemia
 

The bed has been through rigorous testing procedures to ensure it is compliant with BS EN60601-2-52 EU compliance standards and Medical Devices Directive 93/42/EEC and has been exported worldwide, using UK patient experience as a benchmark for quality.

Supporting At-Risk Patients During a Pandemic

Its hard to believe that it has been 19 months since the pandemic hit in March 2020. At the peak of uncertainty, we were putting contingencies in place to continue our 24/7 service without compromising our high standards.

With bariatric patients considered more vulnerable, it was essential that we continued to supply equipment as urgently and as safely as possible to the wards across NHS sites. 

Not only were we responding to acute needs, we also spent a portion of our time helping to facilitate discharges into the community to free up bed space and remove patients from higher risk settings. We were liaising with multi-disciplinary teams to aid these discharges as quickly as possible.

With the complexities of bariatric care and the nature of supplying such specialist equipment, we also had to complete essential training (where appropriate). We had to be creative with this, some training was delivered on ward corridors and some was delivered remotely, all to protect the safety of our keyworkers.   

Our service, like others, had to adapt over the months, but we are so proud to have continued with limited interruption in what has been a challenging time for all. 

A huge thank you to our team for their tireless work throughout, dealing with daily uncertainties and adapting to ever-changing processes to ultimately deliver and make equipment available for patients in need. 

Our thanks and appreciation for the team have been mirrored by our customers, with kind feedback such as the below:

“I would just like to take this opportunity of thanking you, not just during covid, for the excellent service you have provided. I would really like to commend you for being very helpful and efficient and this has not changed during this difficult period.”

Our upmost respect and appreciation extends to all keyworkers making a difference throughout an incredibly difficult period.

The versatile design means that expansion or retraction can be achieved without removing the patient from the mattress.

To adjust the size of the bed simply release the locking pins under each mattress section as demonstrated below -
