Also important, this feature reduces caregiver back strain because it requires less lifting of patients to reposition them."
"This bed's intuitive design makes it easy for caregivers and patients to use, even those with arthritis or poor vision," added Fitzpatrick. "As more patients choose to remain at home or transition from the hospital to a long- term care setting, they can have a bed that looks and feels more like home, while at the same time, enhances their care."
