Hill-Rom selects Kinetic Concepts to develop and manufacture a therapeutic support surface

Hillenbrand Industries : 04 February, 2008  (New Product)
The Hill-Rom subsidiary of Hillenbrand Industries has signed a license agreement with Kinetic Concepts to develop and manufacture a therapeutic support surface for Hill-Rom's VersaCare and TotalCare Bed Systems.
'We want our customers to have access to a variety of support surface options that they can use on their VersaCare and TotalCare bed systems,' said Jeff Kao, president of North America Acute Care for Hill-Rom. 'Agreements with companies like KCI will help us provide a greater choice of surfaces that will best meet the therapeutic needs of patients.'

The VersaCare bed system is a full-featured hospital bed designed to help deliver effective wound therapy, and improved outcomes for patients and their caregivers in acute care environments. It is equipped with features to meet a variety of patient and caregiver needs, such as low bed height and LowChair positioning for easier and safer exit and entry, FlexAfoot mechanism to help keep patients in position within the bed, Turn Assist options, IntelliDrive power-assist transport system, and an Active Integrated Response treatment mattress.

The TotalCare therapy system is designed for use in the intensive care environment and promotes total progressive mobility to assist patients through increasing levels of mobility. The bed features innovations such as Continuous Lateral Rotation Therapy, used when a patient is immobile, and then provides features such as Preliminary Tilt Table, FullChair Position and Stand Assist with Chair Egress for assisting patients to standing positions.
