In many countries, the average age of the population is rapidly increasing. With more residents to care for nursing homes are being further pressured by the efficiency drive in the hospital sector. New policies such as same-day treatment and short-term hospitalisation mean that nursing home residents need more and different care than before.
In a nursing home, the bed is to fulfil the needs of the future it has to become more like an intelligent hospital bed. Electrical adjustment provides comfort for residents that require long periods of bed rest. It also improves ergonomics for the caretaker. But, why not take intelligent multi-functionality a step further?
It would surely make a bed more interesting to a nursing home if it could signal if a resident leaves the bed or wets the bed. Safety features like Nurse Call and Under Bed Light are bound to attract attention. Not to mention automatic service monitoring to make sure that the bed stays in top shape for many years. A welcome feature as most nursing homes need to keep very close track of the cost-efficiency of their investments.
