Room placement guide

Diagram showing room placement of the bed
  1. Roll-up front with soft window
  2. Corner barriers stop access to the back and window area
  3. Soft and safe flexible window lines up with room window
  4. Keep these areas clear

Since no gap is required between the walls of the room and the bed they can make the best use of the available space.

They also have the added benefit that the padded corners act as barriers to stop access down the sides.

Ceiling Track hoist friendly pod

(static or HiLo, single or double bed size, three wall height sizes)

Our pods can now be used with ceiling track hoists, whether you need a HiLo function, castors or fixed we can produce a non-medical looking bed made to your exact requirements.
Anti-bacterial lacquer:

Make the inside of your pod anti-bac for LIFE. A must if smearing is problem this lacquer makes keeping the pod stain and smell free so much easier.


Profiling mattress in the complex care pod

ALL our pods are CUSTOM made to meet the needs of the individual.

The bed opposite was made for a young man with temperature sensitive epilepsy. Working with his OT we made his bed with as much netting as possible, zips had pullers on both sides to allow easy access for both him and his parents, holes were cut in the base board to allow wiring for an epilepsy monitor.

Due to frequent vomiting the inside was coated with Anti-bac lacquer and finally the narrow wall was made with a side that rolled up so he could sleep with a door open but still in safety if he wanted to to use a floor standing fan in summer.

Before ordering, have a think about...

  • The approximate size and weight of the intended user.
  • Special equipment that may have to be used. (Feed tubes, Oxygen tubes etc, hoist )
  • Has the user got any habits that may need to be catered for (smearing – biting – climbing – kicking – picking – challenging behaviour)
  • Mobility issues.

All our products are custom made to suit the user and the room.

Restriction guidelines

With careful selection our products can make a big difference to users and their families (carers). We design our products to be flexible in the amount of restriction they provide.

Under the mental heath act we are advised that the minimum amount of restriction must be used to keep that individual safe.

To comply with the guidelines we offer the following features:-

  1. Both Mini and Midi models are available with both low and high sides.
  2. Netting roofs are available as an optional extra (not built in) on all high sided models accept travel pod. They can be fitted at time of purchase or added at a later date if required.
  3. We employ a special feature on the zips to give the carer control over the level of restriction used on the door zips, please see the Pod feature video below for more details. NO locks or clips are used.
  4. The most important issue with restriction is to ensure that the staff or parent using the equipment fully understands the correct way to use it. Please phone us to discuss how to ensure the equipment is used within the law.

Assessments

If your familiar with our products and it’s been fitted into straight forward room we can normally do an assessment by phone with a room plan being completed by the family or healthcare professional. If however your not sure and the users needs are complex or the room is difficult to measure we will do our best to do a home visit within a reasonable period of time dependent on your distance from OL14 5RF.

We also do demonstrations at monthly meetings and in schools where several parents can see and test the reaction of the intended user. Please phone us to discuss.
