Spinal cord injuries causing paraplegia and quadriplegia are complex and serious medical conditions that have the power to severely impact a person’s physical functionality, as well as socioeconomic and psychological health. All SCI’s require rehabilitation and intervention to assist in the prevention and healing of secondary medical concerns and to improve and address matters of health-related quality of life.
The goals of SCI rehabilitation are to minimize the potential health challenges experienced by paraplegics and quadriplegics and to increase their functional independence, and to relax and improve the person's dignity and sense of self, caregivers management of time, and to manage chronic complications including:
Pressure ulcers (bed sores)
Cardiovascular complications such as embolism
Respiratory complications such as pneumonia
Urinary tract infections (kidney and bladder)
If left untreated, these complications can result in rapidly rising medical costs for the individual in addition to the added health risks. The Freedom Bed™ helps overcome these complications associated to immobility to help mitigate rising medical costs.
Rotating Bed For Spinal Cord Injuries
The Freedom Bed™ is a computer-controlled, self-rotating bed designed specifically for paraplegic and quadriplegic care. This unique medical bed for spinal cord injuries automatically turns its users to differing stable sleeping positions without the help of caregivers, family members, or healthcare professionals. The bed not only turns laterally, but features an intuitive air-powered head and leg raising system so users can be raised into a sitting position.
The Freedom Bed™ smoothly and quietly rotates its users from one side to the other, mimicking the natural nocturnal motion of the body, providing dramatically improved quality of sleep, and reduces many health risks associated with spinal cord injuries. Mechanically repositioning the body restores blood flow to compressed tissue and assists in the prevention of many immobility complications. The Freedom Bed™ also boasts an impressive record of developing feelings of independence, a strong sense of self, and restoring integral quality of life for its users.
Spinal cord injuries are not what they once were. Modern medical advances and technologies like the Freedom Bed™ assist individuals to live fuller, healthier, and happier lives. We urge everyone affected by spinal cord injuries to speak with one of our qualified medical bed specialists to discuss how ProBed Medical and the Freedom Bed™ can address your specific needs.
