ArjoHuntleigh receives Red Dot design award for innovative shower trolley

ArjoHuntleigh, part of the medical device company Getinge Group, has been awarded the prestigious Red Dot Best of the Best product design award in the life science and medicine category “for highest design quality and ground-breaking design” of its new Carevo™ shower trolley.

Carevo is a modern shower trolley for therapeutic showering and bathing in care environments. The shower trolley has been designed with a dual main focus to provide a safe and time- efficient working solution for caregivers while at the same time providing a comfortable and dignified hygiene experience for immobile patients and residents.

The innovative design of the “carving-shaped” stretcher, in combination with the opening in the side support, makes it possible for the caregiver to work closely to the patient and thereby reducing static stress. The integrated control panels are reachable from all major positions, allowing the caregiver to spend more time on the patient.

The comfort handle promotes participation and mobility, enabling the patient to participate when being turned on side and enhances sense of security. Elevated back support improves patient comfort by facilitating breathing and makes the patient feel more involved.

The Flexi Zone improves the laying comfort by distributing the pressure on the body and facilitates safe positioning of the patient, reducing the risk of the patient sliding.

Carevo was developed with a strong focus on smart and user-friendly design. The Best of the Best award for groundbreaking design confirms our efforts to make Carevo the most innovative shower trolley on the market, a shower trolley that not only makes the work more easy on the caregiver but also gives the resident a dignified and comfortable experience”, says Per Henriksson, Senior Project Manager, R&D ArjoHuntleigh.
