The Specialbed for sit and rise multi-positional bed is an aid which is indicated for patients,

  • who cannot sit up on their own in bed or cannot move themselves in bed to get out of bed or mobilise or sit on the edge of bed
  • who have to be moved without damaging the carer to allow them to stand up or mobilise
  • for whom home care must remain possible by using the Specialbed for sit and rise multi-positional bed, reducing the physical strain on the home carer
  • the on-going effort of caring for the patient is reduced
  • pressures resulting from lying down for long periods are reduced

  • mental agility and physical mobility are supported
  • the long-term bedridden patient re-establishes a day-night rhythm by changing his lying and sitting position

The indication for the Specialbed for sit and rise multi-positional bed applies to all illnesses and handicaps where the patient does not have freedom of movement to stand up from a lying or sitting position either with or without help. This is because he has problems with his joints, decreasing muscle strength or pain and his mobilisation needs may physically overtax the carer's own health. It can be used for the following symptoms:
rheumatic symptoms, multiple sclerosis, osteoporosis, Parkinson's, hemi, para and tetraplegia, Apallic syndrom, final stages of Aids, final stages of cancer, heart failure. The Specialbed for sit and rise multi-positional bed aids rehabilitation and mobilisation in the case of immobility caused by physical weakness

can stand up again independently
patient can stand up on his own in spite of expected deterioration of condition
can be passively mobilised again, e.g. in the case of osteoporosis or spinal column metatasis if transfer to an easy chair is no longer possible
does not need a place in a care home and can stay at home to receive care there
in the case of insured persons who are mobility impaired, particularly patients with quadrant syndrome symptoms with the increased risk of developing decubitus, and for further treatment of existing decubitus
in cases of being bedridden on account of chronic (neuro-) muscular illnesses combined with the inability to sit up, transfer or stand up without help, if circulatory training is also required; for osteoporosis and thrombosis prophylaxis
if care must be carried out on the patient entirely or in part in bed
in the case of tetraplegia or advanced muscular dystrophy maintaining the rest of legs, above all when regular changes of position for the upper body and legs are required
to facilitate independent transfer from the bed to a wheelchair
to facilitate independence in standing up
to facilitate and support standing up in cases of severely limited movement, and stress on the lumbar vertical spine and the joints
for patients who are easily exhausted
in cases of spasms occuring as a result of passive movement
for mobilisation for patients suffering from Apallic syndrome
for mobilisation in extreme symptoms of pain when passive movement occurs
sitting position, e.g. in cases of heart failure
to stimulate circulation without transferring to an easy chair
