The new Independence Innov8 electrically profiling hospital bed launched recently by UK healthcare equipment specialists Sidhil is fast building an international reputation for quality and performance. This week, the company has announced successful completion of negotiations with a private hospital purchasing group in Saudi Arabia, signing a contract worth in excess of a quarter of a million pounds for over 100 beds.
The Independence Innov8 is designed around ease of use, world class infection control and performance, incorporating superb ergonomics in terms of both manual handling and user comfort. Electrically operated functions include auto contouring, giving simultaneous adjustment of backrest and kneebreak, with auto regression avoiding surface pinching or occupant sliding.
“The Innov8 bed offers a range of significant advantages over other products on the market, providing total flexibility in terms of bed specification for applications from utility ward beds through to high dependency environments,” stated Sidhil’s Sales & Marketing Director Clive Siddall. “With the launch of this product, we believe we have effectively rewritten the rule book on hospital beds, meeting the researched requirements of patients, hospital teams and health professionals.”
With the beds and accessories designed and manufactured in the UK, Sidhil can also configure units to meet individual hospital needs. As a result, the Innov8 bed destined for the Saudi Arabian market features a special night pack option using low-power, high-brightness LEDs, extra large castors and colour coded head and foot ends.
The first Innov8 units will be shipped to Saudi Arabia at the end of August.
