Oct. 11, 2011 -- Kansas City, Mo. -- Sizewise, a growing and diversified medical equipment manufacturer, today announced the release of its newest hospital bed, the SW Behavioral Health Bed.  This is the first securely automated bed that provides a user-friendly design ensuring ergonomic safety for care providers in behavioral and mental health environments.

“Patient and care provider security was a priority when designing this bed,” said Trever Frickey, Chief Operating Officer.  “Virtually every bed in this market is manual and none go as low to the ground, a key fall prevention measure.”

This bed has a variety of safety features that include; footboard nursing lock out controls that are accessible with a universal key, quick disconnect hand-held nursing controls, contiguous molded construction for headboard, footboard and side rails and with the Rest Secure System option, which is an integrated bed exit alarm, scale and protocol timer.

“These added safety features enhance the Sizewise standard our customers have come to expect,” said Frickey, “The SW Behavioral Health Bed has an 850 pound weight capacity and the ability to provide multiple therapy options on one frame, allowing for increased patient healing.”
