Washer-Extractor Control

The new UniLinc control from UniMac, with 30 water level options, offers the benefits of saving thousands of gallons of water and realizing energy savings just by making the smallest adjustment to water levels and hot water.

When UniLinc's 41 programmable cycles are combined with the UW's super-high 300 G-force extraction cycle, which reduces drying times and utility consumption, washer-extractors can provide maximum water and utility efficiency.

Voice Alarms

Attendant® voice alarms from Direct Supply are easy to use, and offer greater noise control and tamper resistance for safety and customization.

Attendant voice alarms provide a recordable voice option that gently assures the resident that help is on the way. They eliminate audible alarm noise by sending alerts directly to the nurse's station, and can be set with a 0 to 2 second delay to reduce false alarms. The optional self-timing pads help maintain F-tag compliance by tracking usage and notifying caregivers when pad life is about to expire.
