With the mobilisation bed Vertica Stiegelmeyer presents a technical solution to the increased importance of initiating the mobilisation of patients as early as possible. The Vertica allows the patient that is lying down in the bed to securely reach an upright sitting position. This process is carried out in a continuous soft movement. Once in a comfortable sitting position, the patient has secure contact with either the floor or the foot rests. The bed’s multifunctional foot board can then be used as a table. For the nursing staff the gentle rising process is a great relief because the Vertica allows a mobilisation of their patient with considerably less effort.
However, the construction of the bed supports not only sitting, but also standing up: the mattress base is pivoted further into a vertical position. Individually-adjustable bed frame sections serve as a mobilisation support.
