Pressure management is an important technique for keeping skin integrity intact and free from pressure sores – especially for para- and quadriplegics. Mattresses provide low-air loss, lateral rotation and alternating pressure as modalities toward this objective. But being able to change the position of the head and feet is also important – not just for pressure management but also for overall patient comfort and functionality.
CVI Medical has partnered with Amazon and developed an Alexa-based voice activated bed control system that works with Invacare, Span America and Joerns electric hospital beds. These allow the patient to talk to their bed and send the same commands as if they were (or could be) pushing the buttons. The pendant and attendant panels still work – this is just a third way to control the bed.
This system allows patients to control their beds independently when caregivers and family members are not around. Change position to watch television or sleep – or just to get more comfortable. Email or call us for more information.
