Patients with femoral placement of IABP or Impella devices are traditionally on strict bedrest as hip flexion greater than 30 degrees is contraindicated due to risk of various complications such as pump migration or vascular damage.
The Total Lift Bed allows these patients to be partially or fully weight bearing without breaking these precautions to prevent the deleterious effects of bedrest. Patients are able to egress in full standing position directly off of the bed.
There is an increasing number of facilities in the US that are using the total lift bed to safely progress patients to ambulation in the hallway using The Ramsey Protocol.
