Pain Reduction, Bedsore Prevention and Improved Sleep
(Clinical Trial Report)
The University of North Dakota's College of Nursing completed a clinical trial of the Freedom BedTM that was subsequently published in the journal Orthopaedic Nursing (July/August 1999 volume 18 No. 4). A copy of this clinical trial is available from ProBed upon request. The trial demonstrated that the Freedom BedTM was very effective on patients with numerous medical conditions related to immobility.
The lateral rotation capability of the bed provided patients in the trial with the following reported benefits:
- Reduction in levels of pain
- Prevention of bedsore formation
- Reduction in the occurrence of bladder and respiratory infections
- Increased quality of sleep since not woken up by caregivers to turn them
