All-Foam Furniture

The Carefoam two-piece model (shown) is a key component of a restraint-free fall-Reduction program. The “all-foam” construction eliminates hard edges, reducing the potential for skin trauma. The furniture is design to comfortably accommodate in a variety of seating positions, providing head, neck, and lumbar support.

Manufactured from five different densities of foam, including “memory foam” in the seat, the chair provides overall support and pressure reduction. Unique features accommodate both weight-bearing residents and the use of a mechanical lift.

Voice Alarms

Attendant voice alarms from Direct Supply are easy to use and now offer greater noise control and tamper resistance. These reliable alarms are now priced even lower than last year. Attendant voice alarms provide a recordable voice option that gently assures residents that help is on the way. Audible alarm noise is eliminated by sending alerts directly to the nurses’ station, and can be set with a 0- to 2-second delay. Optional self-timing pads help maintain F-tag compliance by tracking usage and notifying caregivers when pad life is about to expire.

Vital Signs Monitor

The Rosie II Vital Signs Monitoring System captures SpO2, E-Temp, blood pressure, and pulse rate in 45 seconds. With a patient ID attached to each set of vitals and 400 lines of memory, the system ensures accurate record keeping and increased nursing efficiency.

Smart Inflation™ increases patient comfort by monitoring the blood pressure during inflation and stopping when necessary. The inflation pressure customizes itself to individual requirements. The NIBP with Dynamic Linear Cuff Deflation technology deflates smoothly, is controlled by the pulse rate, and measures the pressure at every pulse all the way down. Readings are actual systolic, mean, and diastolic blood break points.

Patient records are easily transferred to a PC or clinical software. Secured to a solid wheel base with locking casters, Rosie II is mobile and has a 6-hour battery life. An optional bar code scanner is available.
