The OnCare® VitalGo Total Lift Bed™ provides caregivers with a unique ability to measure patient weight bearing ratios for progressive early mobility therapy. This industry-leading bed tilts a patient from a 0° flat position to an 82° fully upright position, and any degree in-between. Available options include integrated therapy support surface and bariatric size with motorized drive system. With this innovative technology, patient strength can be improved more quickly, potentially reducing length of stay.
How the Weight Bearing Control System Works
The Total Lift Bed features two integrated scales; one located in the sleep deck and one located in the patented Foot Lifter™ footboard. As the bed tilts, a digital screen displays the weight bearing ratio, allowing caregivers to control and gradually increase weight bearing capabilities for accelerated early mobility, improved ambulation and ultimately, optimized patient outcomes.
By engaging the Tilt function, Foot Lifter™ moves toward feet of patient.
Once the Foot Lifter™ reaches patient’s feet, bed begins tilting to desired angle or ratio. Weight bearing control system in Foot Lifter™ measures pressure on patient.
At fully upright, Foot Lifter™ is parallel to floor and patient is able to front egress.
