Witten, 25 January 2021. With its innovative new S 966 hospital bed, hospital and care bed manufacturer Völker has significantly improved patient comfort and at the same time facilitates the daily work of caregivers. Humane care is the focal point for the specialised manufacturer during product development. With the S 966 hospital bed, Völker is setting new standards for the combination of comfort and functionality for both patients and caregivers.

The new S 966 hospital bed from manufacturer Völker offers various product innovations that benefit patients as well as caregivers. The bed offers patients maximum safety and comfort. Thanks to its attractive design, it also contributes to a positive, homely atmosphere and thus supports the patient's well-being and recovery process. Caregivers also benefit from product features that improve handling and translate into real time savings in everyday processes.

Patented assist rail system

The central safety element is the assist rail system offered exclusively by Völker. Integrated directly into the lying surface, the separate side elements are split on both sides and can be independently adjusted to different height levels. This way, they consistently accompany the lying surface during adjustments, in turn supporting mobilisation and fall prevention. The developers placed particular emphasis on the stability of all elements, so that the bed offers both an aid to getting out of the bed and a secure hold when trying to walk. The low bed height of 30 cm reduces the risk of injury from possible falls. Alternatively, the Völker S 966 is also available with fixed split side rails.

MiS®- Micro-Stimulation System

Bedsores are a common problem, especially for patients lying down for a long time. The S 966 can help counteract the risk of bedsores by absorbing even the smallest of the patient's movements and returning them to the patient's body as tactile stimuli. In this way, the bed promotes body awareness, self-movement and blood circulation in the patient's skin. In addition, the system ensures a high level of comfort when lying and sleeping. Other intelligent patient-focused features round off this bed's functionality. An optional, discreet underbody light helps patients to find their way more easily at night and the handset, which also offers an illumination option, can easily be hung off the side rail.

Easy handling for caregivers

The entire design of the bed is geared towards making it easier for hospital staff to use. The brake can also be easily operated in low bed positions, allowing caregivers to move the bed at any height. The head and foot sections can be removed without having to be unlocked. This greatly facilitates handling, especially in emergencies or for cleaning. All bed functions offer specific controls at the push of a button. This allows more time to concentrate on actual caregiving tasks. The optionally available fifth wheel is particularly practical. The bed can be easily moved in any direction, while the fifth wheel ensures particularly good handling.
