Patented Stowable Safety Rails – Enabling Greater Access for Patients and Carers

In 2020 we announced that the Intellectual Property Office had granted a patent on the design of our Aurum+ Bariatric Bed, titled: ‘Barrier for a Bed’ in the UK and Europe. The patented features on the Aurum+ Bariatric Bed range allows caregivers to store the stowable safety rails within the bed frame to carry out manual handling activities with closer access to the patient.


It is also highly desirable for safety rails to be movable so that a patient can exit the bed with ease thus supporting egress and ingress onto the mattress surface.

Our newest addition to the Aurum bed range features this innovative patented technology. To position the side rails, they are easily pulled from the mattress platform and rotated 90⁰ upward and locked into position. To lower the rails the process is simply reversed.


The rails are integral to the bed platform and therefore allow the width of the bed to be increased/decreased with the barrier rail elements moveable between upright or underbed stowed configurations. 


“We believe that our patented technologies allow us to deliver superior and distinctive products, while fulfilling our vision of supporting Healthcare Professionals to safely care for their patients.”
