Often, patients cannot leave their hospital bed due to health issues or the results of surgery but can still be mobilised. The Völker Vis-a-vis bed is designed for situations like this. It allows patients who cannot leave their bed through lateral transfer to sit in an open front-facing position and have their feet contact the ground safely. In this way, the bed supports the mobilisation or activation of the patient. The Vis-a-Vis bed also exemplifies Völker's approach to dignified care: the patient and caregiver meet each other at eye level when giving and receiving care. The unique Völker design and the high-quality haptics of the hospital bed also support patients' well-being and their recovery process as a result.
