The daily challenges faced by nursing teams on hospital wards have inspired Arjo to improve upon an established solution, trusted by hospitals around the globe. In the development of the Enterprise 8000X hospital bed, Arjo has focused on key customer needs common to all healthcare environments, namely:
- Safety for both patient and carer.
- Compliance with new international standards.
- Equipment that is robust, intuitive and easy to use.
- Solutions focused on the quality of care for patients.
The Enterprise 8000 has been independently tested by a globally renowned organisation, to certify that it is compliant with the latest stability, dimensional and safety requirements of the IEC60601-2-52 Standard.
A safe environment is critical to the wellbeing of patients and carers. Falls affect as many as 10% of older adults during an acute care inpatient stay¹ and can result in serious and often life-threatening injuries.
Intuitive operation and ease of use
Our one-button-push controls are intuitive and easy to use, thanks to clear and simple icons. One touch functions can be used for key features, such as:
- Auto CPR
- 30 degree backrest angle
- Cardiac chair position
- Low height and extra low height
- Trendelenberg / reverse Trendelenberg
Some or all of these functions may be locked out by the caregiver if required.
Enhancing the quality of care
The backrest will pause when raised to an angle of 30 degrees, ensuring easy and positive backrest adjustment time after time. Studies show that the 30 degree backrest angle is the minimum requirement for providing recognised physical, postural and clinical benefits\. The caregiver can easily adjust the bed into a cardiac chair position with our simple to use control panel, by selecting the appropriate icon.
Infection control, pit stop maintenance and service
The Enterprise 8000X bed is designed with open architecture and no base cover to allow ease of access for cleaning and decontamination.
