Ortho Bed Description
The bed is a patented technology a new invention in the field of health. An invention with the aim of nursing the immobile patients. Uniquely designed to diminish the pain analogous with musculo-skeletal and paraplegic disorder.
The bed will enable the patient who is bed ridden, to pass stool and urine easily. This bed is made in consideration to best possible ergonomics and inclusive of all the features of a full fowler bed and it has four parts which helps the patient to stay in a comfortable position such as lying down, chair position or semi lying position.
It consists of frame work having four section tops made of perforated S.S 304 grade. An opening is provided in section top so that the patient can pass stool or urine.

In one of the preferred embodiment section top are having radiolucent material to support the body of the patient which enables to take the superior quality radiographs, most often called x-rays, without shifting the patient to other place, X-ray arrangement comprises of tray fixed in the sliding channels which are attached to the frame work below section top. Movement of section top is controlled by movement arm system which comprises of winch handle for providing greater leverage and power in less effort, connecting rods and inclined strips. Connecting rods and section tops are attached with the lower side of the frame under the section top.
Respective winch handles are rotated to actuate connecting arms which in turn gives motion to inclined strips connected with section top for the movement of section top. When winch handle is rotated anticlockwise section top rises up and becomes the back rest, and when rotated clock wise to put section top in bed level.
Winch handles are rotated clock wise to give down ward movement to section tops to convert bed in chair position for upward movement of section tops winch handle is rotated in opposite direction.
The ortho bed meets all the needs of the immobile patients who need versatile utility machine to respond & is patient friendly.
