A new integrated bed and therapeutic mattress system provides flexible care for high dependency patients.

The Citadel Patient Care System is a hospital bed with contour control and weighing functions that includes an integrated therapy surface for critical care and hospital demands. A unique feature is the ability to move the Citadel frame from standard foam mattresses through to bespoke integrated therapy systems, providing one system for multiple acuities. The Citadel Patient Care System is suitable for patients of up to 270 kg, and is also available as the Citadel Plus, intended for the bariatric patient group.

Clinical outcomes and patient comfort and safety are improved through fall prevention features, pressure ulcer management technologies, and patient repositioning control. At the same time, the system helps make the care process more efficient by reducing risk of caregiver injury associated with patient handling. The Citadel system is designed with ease of cleaning and effective infection control in mind to ensure healthcare-associated infections are reduced to a minimum. The Citadel Patient Care System is a product of ArjoHuntleigh (Malmö, Sweden).

“Citadel provides our customers with a system that expands upon our Enterprise frame offering with ease of use and low maintenance and hence low life-time cost, while delivering best in class therapies for patients with limited mobility,” said Hugo Lawrence, global product manager at ArjoHuntleigh. “The technology and therapies incorporated into the Citadel Patient Care System provides flexibility for the caregiver to safely manage the clinical needs of their patients.”
