Mobile low positioning bed.
Care beds had been in dire need of change for a very long time. They have often detracted from the look and feel of home, making the environments they were placed in, feel very clinical.
The sentida range is not like other care beds, at a glance it looks more homely and inviting; the sleek and smooth wood finishes gently radiate style in a care environment; the edges of the bed are very family friendly but looks aren’t always everything- especially when it comes to care. When you look past the sleek exterior of the sentida, it doesn’t take long until you discover German design and engineering at it’s very best.
To be a care bed you expect care to go into every last detail of the bed- Wissner-Bosserhoff have done exactly that! The sentida range of beds are universal low nursing beds, that provide any resident or nursing staff member a greater sense of mind when it comes to patient care. The bed is specifically designed to help prevent resident falls, whilst still achieving high levels of care and comfort.

Patient surface ergonomics
The ergonomic division of the patient surface helps prevent pressure. The dimensions of the 4-part patient surface of wissner-bosserhoff nursing beds are based on findings from anthropometrics, i.e. on the average size and height of a person. On the basis of professor Eigler’s* findings, it can be seen that the backrest area should be at least 80cm long in order to effectively support the cervical spine. The bed can be extended to 220cm to help prevent the patients feet from touching the footboard.
Toes/ feet touching the footboard will often cause pressure ulcers.
2 automatic positions
The automatic positions of Sentida, adjustable at the push of a button, increase comfort when lying in bed and support bedsore prevention for the benefit of the resident while reducing the strain on nursing staff.
Automatic seating position
The automatic comfort seating brings the bed into a pre-selected seating position for watching TV and reading comfortably, for eating or communicating at eye level.
Mobilisation using the lifter is effectively supported in this position. In addition, this position facilitates breathing and digestion. It trains spatial orientation and stimulates circulation for residents, confined to bed. The double retraction provides additional relief of pressure in the sacral area.
Automatic comfort position
The preset legs up position promotes decongestion with venous diseases and at the same time supports bedsore prevention. The 1/2 Fowler 30° position with knee lifting guarantees a reduced bedsore risk* thanks to a favourable weight distribution in the sacral region, which is especially at risk of developing bedsores.
Benefits of Bi-Netic Double Retraction
Creates an extra 17cm in the bed
Excellent for pressure relief and reduces shear forces
Very comfortable and does not cramp the stomach
Double retraction effectively supports OSKA pressure care mattresses and demonstrates that we should make use of all technical means at hand to improve pressure ulcer prevention.
Fall prevention system
The siderails can be used in 3 ways depending on the risk assessment of the patient:
1. Siderails up
2. Siderails down
3. Head end side rail up only. In the event of a fall, the patient would always slip out feet first and would often be prevented from rolling out of bed completely. This greatly reduces the risk of hip fractures and other injuries.
If a patient is attempting to get out of bed themselves, the elevated siderail at the head end assists them (as a hand rail) further reducing the risk of falling when trying to stand from a low bed.
Systematic fall prevention is of crucial importance in care for the elderly, making it an important quality feature of a nursing home. The consequences of falls are often very serious for elderly people and, in the worst case, even irreversible.
The fear of further falls is one of the most common psychological consequences. With the Sentida range of low nursing beds, wissner-bosserhoff has achieved a consequent and above all uncompromising implementation of the requirements of modern nursing care: maximum safety hand in hand with a cosy design.
Innovative solutions such as the 3-stop strategy and the patented SafeFree® side guard concept reduces falls, as well as the consequences associated with them.
3 stop strategy
Fall prevention during sleeping phases.
Safe mobilisation at chair height.
Optimal nursing position.
