Blueleaf Care has released a new product guide for its range of care beds and pressure care mattresses, to help care providers choose the most suitable beds and mattresses for their residents.
Publication of the guide follows the work Blueleaf has been undertaking with bed and mattress manufacturers to design new solutions in line with its commitment to ‘lead the way’ in finding new ways to solve problems.
Its collection of care beds consists of eight products, each with key features to accommodate the specific needs of care home residents. All beds, for example, have adjustable heights – the Ultra Low Floorbed goes as low as 67mm off floor level – to improve accessibility for residents with limited mobility and to minimise the risk of injury in the event of a fall.
Blueleaf works with manufacturers to ensure that beds support carers to give the best care. An adjustment in the bed design, for example, means that, when purchased with a Blueleaf mattress, beds do not require a third rail while still meeting industry regulations for rail to mattress height. This supports improved health and safety as carers are not having to remove and install the rail each time.
Other features include a lockable handset and a range of upholstery options. Various wood finishes are also available for a design tailored to every individual room. With ease and efficiency in mind, all beds have a tool-less assembly, removing the need for specialist equipment, and use standard components, meaning that they are easy to fix should they require repairs.
Blueleaf CEO Nick Frogbrook said: “Each care home resident will have a specific set of physical challenges that deserves a tailored solution.
“We are proud of how closely we work with our manufacturers, and how we’re able to use our collective experience and knowledge of care homes when designing care equipment. It is the team’s dedication to supporting carers to give the best care that results in updated products which are seen in our extensive range of beds and mattresses. We know how important it is for care home providers to have a range of options when choosing the most appropriate equipment for each resident, and in doing so, deliver a better quality of care. We also know how important it is not just to keep pace with innovation but actually be ahead of the curve to improve outcomes for every member of staff, resident and family member.”
