Hill-Rom Innovative TotalCare(R) Bariatric Plus Therapy System Receives Gold Medical Device Excellence Award
Date:6/5/2008

nd engineering features, including innovative use of materials, user-related functions that improve health care delivery and change traditional medical attitudes or practices, features that provide enhanced benefits to the patient, and the ability of the product development team to overcome design and engineering challenges so that the product meets its clinical objectives. A comprehensive review of the entries was performed by an impartial, multidisciplinary panel of third-party jurors with expertise in biomedical engineering, human factors, industrial design, medicine and diagnostics.

According to one of the judges, "This modern-looking bed meets a critical need in the patient-care world -- accommodating large individuals who do not fit in conventionally sized hospital beds." He added that, "clearly, designing such a bed takes a keen knowledge of bariatric patients."*

Key to the innovative quality of the bed are features that enhance microclimate management, including the ability to wick heat and moisture underneath the patient to the head of the mattress and then expel them into the atmosphere. Elements of the surface adjust to individual patients to optimize interface pressure.

The 2008 Medical Design Excellence Award winners were announced and honored at a June 4 ceremony during the Medical Design & Manufacturing (MD&M) East Conference and Exposition June 3-5, 2008 in New York.

Last year Hill-Rom received the Gold 2007 Medical Device Excellence Award for The Vest(R) Airway Clearance System, Model 205. The Vest System is a device to help patients with respiratory conditions clear airway secretions.
