Client brief

The facility is a ‘smart building’ with a range of experience enhancing technology to assist both the residents and staff. The brief was to supply state-of-the-art beds to fit into this enhanced environment.
Project Value: Over $490,000


Solution

The facility is impressive, and it was important to have consistency in the beds supplied to all 120 rooms in this new facility. The final project proposal was based on a series of clinical trials to determine the best solution for the care and comfort of residents as well as the fit and appearance of the bed in this state-of-the-art facility.


Product Delivered

The bed selected was the Wi-Bo Sentida 1000mm King Single wide electric bed. It looks good with a G style headboard and matching low foot-board in a smart Lindberg Oak finish, with under bed lighting, 4 part split rails and strengthened side panel fixings.
The delivery and installation included full set-up of each bed, placement in the rooms and all packaging removal. There was staff and maintenance training and refresher training is available as required for new staff or simply for the staff and residents to get the best out of these state-of the-art beds.
