The Envella bed was unveiled at the Wound Ostomy and Continence Nurses Society Annual Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah this week, the Chicago-based company said.
Hill-Rom said that the Envella air fluidized therapy bed is designed to maximize immersion and envelopment and minimize shear and pressure, as well as regulating the skin’s microclimate. The company claims the technology can lead to better outcomes in patients with complex and advanced wounds .
“Pressure injuries present a significant challenge for the entire healthcare environment. Across the care continuum, pressure injuries are quite common, cause serious concerns both to patients and their caregivers, and create financial burdens for the healthcare system. The Envella bed’s differentiated technology provides an ideal healing environment for the prevention and treatment of advanced pressure injuries,” patient support systems prez Paul Johnson said in a press release.
In April, Hill-Rom said it launched the Monarch airway clearance system designed to provide high frequency chest wall oscillation.
The Monarch device is a mobile vest which uses personal oscillating discs to provide targeted kinetic energy and HFCWO to the lungs to thin mucus and generate airflow, the company said.
