The Etude Plus care bed, with its attractive aesthetics, flexible design and easy handling is ideal for community care. All the hallmarks and proven features of the popular Etude, such as sturdiness, ease of handling and durability, are very much present in this new community bed. The Etude Plus is available with the innovative ‘Shear Management Technology’ which helps to reduce shear and friction forces. The backrest auto-regression mechanism swings up and back as the bed profiles, reducing the propensity for the client to slide down the bed. This reduction in shear and friction forces may help in the prevention of skin damage and associated pressure ulcer formation.
Modern and flexible
The streamlined, discreet design perfectly complements any interior. The bed can be configured with steel or wood side rails with the option of having an extra wood plate to cover the bed end actuator if required. Small details make a big difference to personal comfort: the Etude Plus is equipped with auto-regression for increased comfort and reduction in shear and friction. A lockable hand control is also available for increased safety. The standard, built-in double-brackets are designed to suit any client’s transfer needs by offering different positions (entrance height of 400 mm or a lower alternative of 330 mm.)
Easy handling and storage
Portability and storage are key benefits of the Etude Plus. Its simplistic design allows easy assembly and dismantling without tools, and the process can be safely and comfortably managed by one person (each section weighs less than 25 kg). The bed ends can be easily attached to the transport unit making the Etude Plus lightweight and manoeuvrable for handling and storage.
