West Chicago, IL (PRWEB) October 11, 2012
A new Attenda® Bed and Riser, designed for critical environments, is now available from Norix Group. The bed and riser offer innovative features to enhance patient and staff safety.
The Attenda® Bed is preferred by mental health practitioners because of its non-porous one-piece construction – molded in a impact polymer, with no seams, frames or moving parts. Norix has now enhanced the safety attributes even more with the addition of an accompanying riser that raises the bed a full eight inches.
According to Brad Karl, Norix Product Manager, the bed height and the ability to use patient lift devices are critical safety issues for patients AND staff. “The new Attenda Riser raises the bed height to a level that allows staff members to administer to patients more easily. Patient egress from the bed is also enhanced – which is particularly helpful for geriatric patients. And the unique design of the new riser permits the use of patient lift devices – without frames or legs that may pose a patient safety concern.”
The Attenda® Bed and Riser offer extreme durability, and may be anchored to the floor for maximum security. The Attenda® Bed and Riser are available in a broad range of color combinations.
