ProCuity The First Completely Wireless Hospital Bed Launched by Stryker: Set at an Industry-Low Height of 11.5 Inches Ergonomically Designed

Offers the Latest Technologies and Features to Promote Safe Patient Handling and Help Reduce Patient Falls

The first completely wireless hospital bed has been launched by Styker. ProCuity™, bed was designed to help reduce in-hospital patient falls at all acuity levels, improve nurse workflow efficiencies and safety, as well as help lower hospital costs. It is the only bed on the market today that can connect seamlessly to nurse call systems without the use of cables or wires.

“Patient safety is at the foundation of everything we do at Stryker. With rising acuity rates leading to increased bed demand, coupled with the continuing challenge of in-hospital falls, we needed to find a solution to further enhance our response to some of today’s most pressing healthcare challenges,” said Jessica Mathieson, VP/GM of Acute Care, Stryker. “Leveraging our long history in innovation, ProCuity is the culmination of years of extensive research and feedback from nurses and other healthcare professionals to create what is truly a ‘brilliance in a bed’ solution. It was designed to improve patient outcomes and assist caregivers for years to come.”

Research shows that between 700,000 and 1 million patients experience a fall while being treated in the hospital annually1, with 79 percent of falls occurring on or near a bed while unassisted2. Stryker’s own research found that 97 percent of hospital nurses reported having encountered a situation where a patient has had difficulty getting out of a hospital bed, with 75 percent reporting they have encountered a situation where a patient has hurt him or herself while getting out of a hospital bed3. Anywhere from 30 to 51 percent of in-hospital falls result in injuries4.

Set at an industry-low height of 11.5 inches*, ProCuity is ergonomically designed with the latest technologies to promote safe patient handling and help reduce fall-related injuries, including intuitive patient positioning and bed alarms as well as ergonomic side rails. Helping to address nurse call cable connectivity issues prevalent in hospitals today, ProCuity can be equipped with fully wireless features. Additionally, the bed’s easy-to-use touchscreens and other key components makes the job of caregivers easier and more efficient, while providing for a more enhanced patient experience.

Specific key features of ProCuity include:

  • Completely Wireless: ProCuity’s Secure® Connect™ wireless solution makes it the only bed on the market that can connect without cables to nurse call systems. Additionally, with iBed Wireless, all bed data, including bed configuration and exit alarm activity, are wirelessly compatible with facilities’ hospital information systems (HIS). To help give caregivers increased visibility to safe bed configuration and bed exit alarm activity, ProCuity can also integrate with Stryker’s optional patient-centric clinical dashboard, iBed Vision.
  • Ergonomic Side Rails: Three-position Secure® Assist side rails allow for easier patient entry and exit as well as nurse-patient interaction. By working in a “clocking motion,” the side rails stay tightly close to the bed, thus avoiding unnecessary interference with any real estate next to the bed.
  • Intuitive Patient and Bed Monitoring Systems: ProCuity’s exclusive Adaptive Bed Alarm uses load cell technology to sense a patient’s weight and will alert nurses if a patient is out of position or has left the bed. With ProCuity’s iBed Watch system, all operational aspects of the bed, from side rail positioning, head of bed angle and height, are monitored to ensure that it is always in a safe position for the patient. Caregivers are alerted immediately if any components are out of position.
  • Zoom Motorized Drive: To help caregivers move patients safely and more efficiently, ProCuity Z and ZM models come complete with Zoom® Motorized Drive, a motorcycle throttle-like touch handle that deploys the central fifth wheel. It also comes with one-touch electric brakes.
  • Standard, Customizable Platform: From MedSurg units to the ICU, the ProCuity bed series is designed to meet all patient acuity levels. This helps make standardization across hospitals easier, while reducing hospital costs associated with renting specialty beds and the need for bed transfers and extra staff.
  • Enhanced Patient Experience: To provide greater flexibility for taller patients, ProCuity has an integrated bed extender, which allows the bed to stretch an additional 12 inches in length. It also comes with a USB port and holder to allow patients to charge and store personal electronic devices like phones.
  • Guarantee Program: Through Stryker’s Financial Guarantee program, the company promises customers will see a 50% reduction in bed-related falls occurring on Stryker beds utilizing iBed Wireless technology**.
  • Global Launch: ProCuity is being launched globally in over 70 countries, with a market focus in North America, Latin America, Europe, the Middle East, Australia/New Zealand, and Asia. In the U.S., units will ship in January 2021.

Dr. Sachita Shah, Sr. Director, Global Health, Butterfly Network, "Butterfly is proud to continue improving maternal health equity through Phase Two of the largest-scale handheld ultrasound distribution and training ever conducted in Sub-Saharan Africa. South Africa is an emerging market that continues to have disproportionately high rates of maternal mortality and stillbirth. Patients need easier access to antenatal imaging, and clinicians need better capabilities for screening high-risk conditions that lead to disproportionately worse pregnancy outcomes in rural areas in the public sector. Together with CHAI and GUSI, we can tackle this by making ultrasound much more accessible, so high-risk conditions can be identified earlier in care, which is known to improve outcomes.”
The clinical Study will enroll up to 97 patients at up to 12 European investigational sites. Completion of the study is expected this year, and results will support CE mark and pre-market approval submissions reports Vivasure Medical.
Dr. Michael Newman, Indaptus’ Founder, Chief Scientific Officer, and lead author, commented, “The new data are consistent with our preclinical animal tumor model studies and provide evidence for our hypothesis that patented Decoy bacteria can activate a wide range of innate and adaptive human immune cells involved in fighting tumors.  This aligns with what we’ve observed in our ongoing Phase 1 clinical trial of Decoy20 – broad immune activation, as evidenced by transiently increased levels of many key cytokines and chemokines following single dose administration. These findings bolster our confidence in Decoy20's potential as a multifaceted immunotherapy.”
