Machine washable hospital bed - in purely Finnish design!
Merivaara's revolutionary and popular Carena bed has all the features required by healthcare professionals, from the point of view of ergonomics and patient safety. The new Carena model is suitable for the demanding conditions imposed by machine washing with water. The new machine washable Carena bed complies with the strictest standards and hygienic criteria. Its antibacterial coating reduces bacterial growth, also on the frame. Therefore, Carena is an ideal choice, both in primary care and ER and in long-term care.
Washable Carena complies with the strictest standards and hygienic criteria
The new machine washable Carena hospital bed complies with standard EN 60601-2-52 on hospital beds, and it meets the criteria of section 22.214.171.124.101 on “Machine washable medical bed”.
- Corrosion protection of the bed frame prevents rusting
- Ingress protection class IP66W increases the service life of electrical components
- Antibacterial coating restrains bacterial growth
- Furthermore, dual castors improve the bed maneouverability, making transportation easier
Carena bed provides state-of-the-art ergonomics, both for nurses and patients. Thanks to the minimum height, short patients can climb in and out of the bed on their own. The safe working load of the bed is 330kg, which means the bed is safe for weightier patients, as well. It is easy to employ a variety of treatment positions, thanks to the four-sectional mattress base. The unique lifting mechanism enables the use of the Trendelenburg adjustment, even in the lowest position of the bed.
