Introducing Casa Elite and Bradshaw Home and Residential Care Bed Ranges!

Exciting new developments for the community and long-term care environments are ongoing at Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare, as they invest in their range of home care and residential care products ahead of emerging market requirements. With a focus on simplified solutions for equipment provision, Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare have just launched their Bradshaw and Casa Elite ranges; two brand new electric profiling bed families that offer flexibility and choice, with cross compatible accessories and innovative modular designs.

The Casa Elite range provides flexible solutions for community, nursing and residential care settings. Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare have developed an innovative design solution which enables the aesthetic of the Casa Elite bed to be upgraded with a modular head and footboard design that encloses the bed actuators in a matter of minutes, transforming the overall appearance. This unique design allows for the head and footboards to be replaced and repaired quickly and easily should this be necessary, reducing product downtime during recycling, service and maintenance.

The Bradshaw range has been developed for home care, nursing and residential care settings and offers clinically advanced features whilst providing a comfortable and safe sleeping environment. Featuring an Auto Regressing backrest, the Bradshaw beds are designed to maximise resident comfort. The backrest section of the profiling bed raises and regresses away from the pivot point based around the sacrum; increasing the space in the sacral area to promote comfort, minimise shear and friction forces and support the reduction in torso compression1.

Available in five different wood finishes, the Bradshaw bed fits seamlessly into any room décor and style. In addition, optional high-quality leatherette padded inserts for the head and footboards can be added. These are available in six attractive colours to compliment and coordinate with any interior and the unique design allows these padded sections to be added to the bed at any time or easily changed to suit different decoration requirements.

Drive DeVilbiss Healthcare have designed and manufactured the Bradshaw range of beds from their production facilities in Halifax, West Yorkshire, supporting the local economy where possible by sourcing materials and components from local suppliers.

Designed with resident safety and comfort in mind, these latest bed ranges offer a large selection of wooden and metal side rails; including the patented metal dipped side rails, developed to minimise excess pressure on the backs of the legs when transferring into or out of the bed. Compatibility of these rails across other Drive DeVilbiss bed ranges offers cost and stock holding benefits; whilst reducing training requirements due to familiarity with shared items, simplifying bed fleet management and maintenance.

The Bradshaw and Casa Elite bed ranges have both undergone testing to meet the requirements for medical electrical equipment and are compliant with EN 60601-1, EN 60601-1-11 and EN 60601-2-52.

“We have developed the Bradshaw and Casa Elite bed ranges with the aim of simplifying our bed solutions for our customers, without compromising on functionality, aesthetic or patient safety. By keeping our design and manufacturing in-house, we have ensured that quality and compliance are prioritised at each stage of development.”
