SleepSafe Adaptive Beds meet or exceed safety standards with classic style
English Ave Industries has introduced new beds for use in the home health care industry. Designed with advice from care-taking professionals, the beds, named SleepSafe and SleepSafer, are designed from solid clear maple or red oak and accommodate standard box springs and mattresses. The SleepSafePlus and SleepSaferPlus Beds offer full, remote control articulation.
The company developed the SleepSafe products because of growing concerns over patient entrapment associated with hospital bed side rails. Entrapment can occur in hospitals, nursing homes and at home, particularly with frail, elderly, or confused patients. The FDA continues to receive reports of injury or death as a result of patients who have become trapped between the mattress and bedrail or in the bedrail openings.
The SleepSafe products help reduce these risks by designing the following features into their beds:
• Adaptive full-length, or partial length side safety rails, combining the strength of solid hardwoods with clear acrylic panels.
• Users can see their environment, reducing the chance claustrophobia, and caregivers can monitor their patients more easily.
• Only a ¼” gap exists between the mattress and the headboard and footboard, as well as ¼” gap between the side guardrails and mattress. The tolerance for SleepSafePlus and SleepSaferPlus Beds is slightly larger to allow mattress articulation.
• The headboard and footboard extend well below the mattress, eliminating the chance of an arm or leg becoming trapped.
This unique, patented SleepSafe system also allows for easy attachment and removal of side safety rails as the patient’s needs change. The classic Mission design offers rock solid construction, created with clear maple or red oak, unique to patient care beds or hospital beds.
Known for their inventive solutions and creative approach to furniture design, English Ave. Industries, LLC continues to develop the SleepSafe product line to offer even more options for caregivers.
