Two things play a particularly important role in care situations: Safety and hygiene. Falling out of the care bed is a major risk that can never be completely eliminated.
And bacteria and germs can spread incredibly quickly in care facilities. These factors also make great demands on the care bed castors. The cleanliness of the castors must always be ensured; a special design also reduces the risk of injury. Easy manoeuvrability of the beds must be taken into account too. Care staff regularly push them along narrow aisles and have to stop them and start them moving, time and again. If the castors are sluggish, this will affect the health of care staff in the long term.
Requirements for care bed castors
Care bed castors with a high-quality precision ball bearing enable smooth running, which increases drive comfort and thus lightens the workload of carers. Care beds should be fitted with swivel castors so that they can be pushed in all directions. Sealed bearings ensure that the castors can be easily cleaned, in accordance with the hygiene requirements. A housing design with a low overall height is also recommended. This reduces the overall height of the bed, which in turn reduces the potential falling height and the resulting risk of injury.
