Powered patient beds improve comfort, monitoring and maneuverability for patients and health care professionals. They can support several functions, including:
- Vital signs monitor
- Electrocardiogram (ECG)
- Infusion pumps - provide controlled delivery of fluids such as blood, medication and nutrients to a patient via the circulatory system. Healthcare staff can program them to deliver a substance in specific timing intervals and/or volumes, eliminating the chance for human error.
- Bed tilt/bed wheels control
NXP® microcontrollers, microprocessors, analog components and sensors offer developers flexibility when designing patient beds.
