Zemic Europe B.V. (USA) - Vitalgo makes ICU Beds and more specifically a very special one that helps with ARDS patients and therefore particularly helpful for COVID-19 Virus Patients. Acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is a rapidly progressive disease occurring in critically ill patients. The main complication in ARDS is that fluid leaks into the lungs making breathing difficult or impossible.
Why use these special ICU Beds?
Standing upright for Pulmonary issues and without patient contact is, of course, a huge benefit of the Total Lift Bed.
Zemic Europe is proud we helped Vitalgo in the design of the Total Lift Bed weighing system. The Total Lift Bed Trendelenburg from Vitalgo features a patented weight bearing control system: one scale located in the sleep deck and one located in the patented Foot Lifter™ footboard. As the bed tilts, a digital screen displays the weight bearing ratio, allowing caregivers to control and gradually increase weight bearing capabilities for accelerated early mobility, improved ambulation and ultimately, optimized patient outcome. This weighing system has the NAWI approval. (EC type-approval Certificate T8813).
