Hill-Rom Introduces Innovative Smart Bed for Medical-Surgical Settings





Hill-Rom announced the introduction of Hill-Rom's Advanta™ 2 Bed for use in medical – surgical areas of hospitals and care facilities. The new bed brings together ease of use with key safety features and the flexibility to use a variety of care surfaces as needed.

Jeff Kao, president of Hill-Rom's North America Acute Care division said, Hill-Rom is pleased to offer this new solution to our customers. It combines the best features of Hill-Rom's long-time leader, the Advanta bed, with many of the more sophisticated features first introduced in the VersaCare® Bed system. The Advanta 2 bed is built with a flat deck (open architecture) so it is compatible with a wide variety of therapy surfaces, making it highly flexible to meet the goals of a facility and also providing comfort to meet a patient's needs.

Because safety is the number one concern for every caregiver, the Advanta 2 bed offers key safety features, including an innovative siderail design to enhance the patient's ability to grasp the siderail when entering or exiting the bed. The bed also provides in-rail storage to reduce the need to reach out of bed along with a 4-corner brake and steering system and an alarm to alert caregivers when the brake is off. To help prevent falls, the Advanta 2 bed provides the lowest bed height on any bed equipped with power drive capability.
