Is This Bed Cost-Effective?
Ideal for care homes and residential care on a budget, this bed provides unrivalled functionality and ease of use for its price. With four-section mattress profiling for smooth adjustments, an extremely low height for safety, and shear-reducing operation for bed sore prevention, this bed is the perfect profiling solution for both patients and carers.
Low Profile for Increased Safety
This bed provides peace of mind for carers and patients, with a low profile to reduce risk of injury from falls. It sits only 210mm from the floor, all but eliminating injury risk – especially when paired with a floor crash mattress like the Invacare Medley Ergo Low Crash Mattress, which can be added to your order by ticking the box near the top of the page.
Is the Height Easily Adjustable?
Yes, this bed is made with a flexible design to make it simple to adjust the platform to an ideal height. For maximum versatility, it can be adjusted between 210mm and 610mm to provide a comfortable working height for carers and an ideal transfer height for patients.
Can I Add Side Rails?
Yes, you can add side rails to your bed by purchasing the Invacare Medley Ergo Full Length Side Rails. These are available in three styles, including an extendable version, and must be purchased with the Invacare Medley Ergo Slider Assembly Set for attachment.
Is This Bed Comfortable for the User?
This bed is designed to provide comfort for long hours of use each day, with proportional sections to enhance comfort when sitting and during profiling. This means that patients can comfortable sit up in bed, and won't have to readjust after the bed is adjusted into a different position.
Aesthetically Pleasing Design
To make the care environment more comfortable for the patient, this bed is made with an attractive, homely design. This design is also functional, as the leg supports are fitted with Rastofix to enable individual positioning of the legs.
Easily Adaptable for the Community Market
The Medley Ergo Low Profiling Bed has been specially designed to meet the demands of transient community working environments, as it facilitates quick transportation and assembly. It can be easily installed and moved, allowing it to accommodate all of the demands a care facility might have.
How Does This Bed Help to Reduce Pressure Sores?
With an adjustable mattress platform to stop patients sliding down, this bed will reduce the shear and friction forces that are often associated with profiling. Constructed to meet the anthropometric statistics and pressure mapping recommendations, the Medley Ergo Low Bed is a superb choice for patients at high risk of pressure sore development. The dimensions of the bed are optimised for all patients, making the bed suitable for even the shortest of users.
Is a Lifting Pole Available?
Yes, this bed is compatible with the Lifting Pole for Invacare Medley Ergo Profiling Beds, which can be added to your order using the tick box near the top of the page. This pole easily attaches to the framework of your bed, and provides a handle that hangs down above the patient to allow for easy self-adjustments and an increase in independence.
Are Support Handles Available?
Yes, this bed is compatible with the Invacare Support Handle for Medley Ergo Beds, which can be added to your order using the tick box near the top of the page. This handle attaches to the side of your bed, and will assist the user in getting in and out of bed independently.
