Fall prevention

Low beds as an alternative to the use of restraints

IMPULSE 400 / LR 100

Home-like low beds with universal features

Impulse 400 low care bed

Impulse 400 LR100 low care bed

The Malsch low care beds Impulse 400 and Impulse 400 LR100 allow the reclining surface to be lowered to a floor height of just 25 cm (Impulse 400) or 26 cm (Impulse 400 LR100). There is almost no risk of injury to occupants in this position in the event of a fall. The Malsch low care beds are equipped with a superior range of basic features during the manufacturing process, from an integrated bed extension and mobilising side rail system to the transfer position, which facilitates patients' mounting and dismounting at an optimised seating height. The Impulse 400 LR100 model also features outstanding handling characteristics thanks to the 100 mm double castors, which are also equipped with a fixed direction and central brake.

The additional protection offered by the optional integrated bed-exit-system (optional) or the sensor pad for bed exit detection (optional) ensures that care staff can be alerted by occupants via the nurse call system before they leave the bed, allowing carers to react in time. The wireless alarm is triggered by sensors inserted in the edge of the mattress as soon as the occupant attempts to leave the bed. This allows safeguarding with side rails to be dispensed with in many cases, with the result that occupants' freedom is not restricted.

Product details

Reclining surface options

The four-part reclining surfaces with mattress compensation as recommended by the German Nurses Association (DBfK) offer optimum ergonomics and thus prevent the development of pressure sores. The auto-contour adjustment of back rest and leg section allows the occupant to be raised upwards gently, while the comfort sitting position is ideal for watching television or reading, in addition to having a positive effect on breathing and circulation.

The Impulse care bed series can be equipped with the following reclining surfaces*:

Metal lattice

Integrated bed extension

The integrated bed extension offers maximum flexibility for the extension of the reclining surface by 10 cm without mattress insert and 20 cm with the said insert. There is no danger of collision even when the bed is fully extended.

The bed can be extended manually without tools via two locking bolts. The high-quality bearings guarantee maximum stability when the bed is extended.

In conjunction with our mobilising side rail system, we guarantee full compliance with the DIN EN 60601-2-52 standard, reducing restraining measures by foregoing additional protectors.

Transfer position
  • Anatomically adjusted side rail/reclining surface combination
  • Optimum mounting and dismounting at seating height possible thanks to the transfer button on the hand controller (Impulse 400/LR100)
  • Side rail component aligned at the head of the bed
  • Mobility-promoting side rail position
Comfort sitting position

The comfort sitting position ensures that the occupant can sit upright comfortably, and it is ideal for watching television, eating or communicating. Spatial orientation is improved, and breathing and circulation are influenced positively.

The intelligent alignment process with back rest adjustment prevents the occupant from coming into contact with the headboard and simultaneously relieves pressure on the buttocks.
