Mechanical IMPULSE KL-M hospital bed

The IMPULSE KL-M hospital bed can be configured with two different undercarriages and the editions 300-P and 200-P can be specifically adapted for use in psychiatric facilities. The IMPULSE KL-M edition 300-P features hydraulic height adjustment from 40–80 cm and the possibility of pivoting the reclining surface. This supports the Trendelenburg/Anti-Trendelenburg position and the comfort sitting position.

The 200-P edition offers hydraulic height adjustment with no vertical adjustment functions. The different undercarriage has 150 mm single castors with a central brake.

Adjustment functions

Access position

The access position of 40 cm makes it easy to stand up from the IMPULSE KL-M hospital bed. Combined with the optional mobilisation position of the side­rail­ option GS, occupants can get into and out of bed comfortably, safely and independently.

Working height

Ergonomic, back-friendly working is important for maintaining the health of care staff. The working position makes it possible to care for the bed occupants at a comfortable height.

Comfort sitting position

The button mechanism on the hand controller moves the bed into a comfortable, upright sitting position for the occupant. The comfort sitting position has a positive effect on vital functions, facilitates orientation for residents/patients and allows them to communicate with each other (only IMPULSE KL-M edition 300 and edition 300-P).

Trendelenburg position

The Trendelenburg position can be a good measure to assist with stabilising occupants with circulatory problems. The motorised adjustment in the head-lowering device enables quick action in an emergency (only IMPULSE KL-M edition 300 and edition 300-P).

Configuration options for mechanically adjustable hospital beds

Flexibility through the choice of reclining surface

Depending on the chosen fittings, the mechanical hospital bed IMPULSE KL-M can have a two-part or four-part reclining surface with optional mattress compensation for the back rest.

You can choose from various reclining surfaces:

The firmly welded metal mesh reclining surface has excellent ventilation properties and enables optimum moisture transfer.

The metal slat reclining surface offers an economical alternative. The profile bars are smooth with an easy-to-clean surface and offer good ventilation for the mattress. This version is not available for all editions.

Standard size mechanical hospital beds are also available with an optional ABS reclining surface. The removable plastic surfaces allow for easy cleaning and disinfection and are quick to replace.

The vertical side rail system
with one-handed operation

The advantages of the retractable vertical side rail system with one-handed operation (EVGS) are in its quick and intuitive operation in an extremely compact design. No lateral space is required due to the vertical telescopic system. The exceptional stability of the anodised aluminium precision-made elements highlights the high product quality of the IMPULSE KL-M hospital bed. In addition, the side rail element at the good end is fitted with an ISO standard rail to hold accessories.

In addition to securing the bed's occupant, the safety elements at the head end can be used as a mobilisation aid (1). The secure grab handle provides assistance with getting up or going to bed. The sophisticated layout of the reclining surface and side rails facilitates the resident’s transition to the exit position.

The standby position (2) of the side rails allows the occupant to sit comfortably on the edge of the bed and enables easy access by lowering all side rail elements.

The extended fall prevention (3) position with tangible boundaries around the reclining surface counteracts unconscious rolling out and assists care staff during the transfer.

When telescoped to its maximum height, it is possible to completely secure (4) the bed occupant.

Other side rail systems for Malsch hospital beds

Vertical side rails without one-handed operation

The vertically retractable side rail system is also available with the same functionality without the one-handed operation.

Swivel side rail system

For technical reasons, the swivel-mounted version of the split-side rail offers 3 height positions with the same material properties and stability.

Full-length, removable side rail

The full-length, removable side rail is particularly requested by psychiatric facilities.

Adjust to new patients:
the integrated bed extension

Changing patients require flexible solutions. The integrated bed extension enables optimal lying comfort, even for tall people.

The reclining surface can be extended in a matter of seconds without tools using a quick-release mechanism. All bed functions remain fully usable in the extended state.

The system can be telescoped in two stages
(by 10 or 20 cm) and does not require additional protectors. For an extension of 20 cm, we recommend using an optional mattress insert.
