Safety

Accidents with electrically adjustable carebeds are mainly due to electrical safety faults and failure to comply with safety-related dimensions of the side lattices. (Source: Federal Institute for Pharmaceutical Products and Medical Devices BfArM)

Kayserbetten, as manufacturers of medical devices, produce carebeds for children in accordance with the standards of the medical devices guidelines, which are regulated by the German Act on Medical Devices and in accordance with the guidelines for care aids that are specified by the Central Association of Health Insurance Companies.

Compliance with these regulations is tested and monitored by the accredited test laboratory for active and non-active medical devices of BerlinCert Prüf- und Zertifizierungsstelle für Medizinprodukte GmbH (BerlinCert Testing and Certifying Body for Medical Devices) at the Technical University in Berlin.

The following norms apply:

DIN EN 32623:2002
Children’s hospital beds made of metal and plastics

DIN EN 1970:2000
Adjustable beds for disabled persons

DIN EN 60601-2-38:2001
Medical electrical equipment, Section 2-38: specific safety
regulations for electrically operated hospital beds.

DIN EN 60601-1:1996
Medical electrical equipment, Section 1
General safety regulations

Side lattice dimensions

These norms regulate amongst others the adherence to the safety-related dimensions of the side lattices. Here, the limits are defined for all gap widths and spacing of a side lattice to minimise the danger of entrapment.

Another important requirement of this norm is that the locking devices have to be at least 850 mm apart. If this is not possible, e.g. at the head or foot of the bed, the system requires two consecutive actions, each operating on a different principle. The second action must be dependent on the first action.

1. Unlock the side lattice safeguard (red circle)
2. Pull the locking devices inwards simultaneously

Furthermore, a hinge system has been developed for our doors with which we can reduce the danger of entrapment to a minimum.

Nip Hinge System

In the interior of the bed, there is no point where fingers can be trapped in the area of the door’s fulcrum.

We use only selected beech wood, high quality fittings from well-known manufacturers and locking mechanisms developed and produced by our company.
Safety of the electrics and surfaces

The electrical safety of KayserBeds is guaranteed by the following features:

  • Moisture resistance category IPX4 and manufacture of all electrical components in accordance with the guidelines of the German Electrical Technicians Association (VDE)
  • Power cut-off plug. When the hand switch is not activated (power disconnected state) all electrical components of the bed are disconnected from the mains and therefore no electricity is used. Electric and magnetic fields in the bed are prevented.
  • Primary fuse on power plug
  • Maintenance-free DC motors and manual safety switch, low voltage
  • Emergency lowering in the case of power failure

Surfaces

As Kayserbetten are the only manufacturer of wooden carecots, they provide a coating that seals the surfaces for maximum hygiene. Unlike open surfaces (waxed or oiled), this coating protects against liquids and dirt. Conform to the requirements of the norm

DIN 68861, 1B
furniture surfaces, Section 1: Behavviour under chemical exposure.

The surface can be cleaned with common cleaning and disinfection products.
With this, KayserBeds are not only excellent for use at home - they can be used in the clinical field too.

The tests carried out on the paints used guarantees that there are no health risks in connection with sucking, licking and swallowing parts of the surface coating, based on the following norms:

DIN EN71 Section 3
Toy safety

EN ISO 10993-1:2003
Biological evaluation of medical products

Cytotoxic (“cell toxicity”: toxic effect on a cellular level) biocompatibility testing of the paint by the laboratory for biological safety tests ©CYTOX Erlangen.

Testimonials

Medifab Genie ‘Safe Surround’ Bed Testimonial

Our child was 3years old when he went from sleeping in a traditional cot to his wonderful Genie bed. I no longer had to bend down and lift him up and out of his cot, twisting my back in the process - a huge relief after such a long time with an inappropriate sleeping set up. Not only does the Genie provide a safe and comfortable bed for our child, but also ease of care for us as parents.

One of the best features of the Genie has been its single bed size with the ‘safe surround’ sides – perfect for our developmentally delayed older child. He wakes during the night regularly and often requires adult help resettling to sleep. In a cot, I had to remove him and place him in bed with me. Once he was asleep, I could not leave him - as he was unsafe if he woke - so I spent many nights sharing a bed with a restless child. The Genie has enabled me to lie down beside him, resettle him, and then close the doors behind me, as I sneak back to my own bed knowing he is safe should he wake again. Sleep is vital to all parents, so getting more of it in my own bed (without our child) is priceless.

Another wonderful feature for us has been the two-direction tilt. This has enabled us to create what we call the “reflux tilt”! Regardless of which direction our child falls asleep, we can tilt him on an appropriate angle to aide his severe reflux.

Our child recently had major hip surgery, which required the use of a special brace for 6 weeks. He was only comfortable sleeping in a semi-upright position, so our Genie was invaluable. The five-section sleeping platform enabled us to create a customised sleeping position for him and helped us all through a very difficult time.

The maximum height of the Genie makes transfers in and out of bed much easier on our backs. The lowest position will eventually enable our child to transfer into bed by himself. The operation of the motor is quieter than I had imagined and doesn’t disturb our sleeping child, which is an added bonus!

The bi-fold doors move smoothly and have an excellent locking mechanism. The Perspex windows are aesthetically pleasing and less enclosing than all wooden uprights. The wooden frame makes the bed less ‘medical looking’ than similar beds with metal tubing – much nicer for a child’s bedroom!

The service we received through Medifab has been outstanding. They have answered all questions quickly via either phone or email and have sent us excellent information outlining their products. The personal service they provided for installation of the bed was a real bonus.

The Genie has really changed my life! I love it and so does our son.

 

Feedback from Therapist on the Genie Bed

"The bed has been a huge success. The space is so much better than his cot and the elevation has been everything his carer hoped for. I think it is very useful for the right child. I thought the service from Medifab was fantastic regarding delivery and installation. Also the pre sales advice was great and much appreciated."
