Minuet 2

Smart range of comfortable community beds

Our range of Minuet® 2 community beds takes many of the features and benefits of the highly acclaimed acute care range and delivers them in a new package optimised for use in residential settings.

Designed for use in residential and convalescent homes and private residences, Our range of Minuet 2 community beds provides a real solution for independent living.

The Minuet 2 range's Pro-Contour® advanced profiling system with intelligent profiling delivers outstanding pressure, shear and friction reduction, helping to reduce the risk of pressure injury development*, as well as improving postural support and comfort for the resident/patient.

Developed by the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the IEC60601-2-52:2009 standard is the new benchmark for medical bed performance and safety.

While the standard covers many aspects including electrical safety, load bearing, stability and durability, one of the main requirements focuses on reducing the risk of resident/patient entrapment in or around the bed frame.

Maximising Patient Safety

Use of extensive incident and risk data has enabled the IEC to identify a number of areas around the bed where entrapment of a resident's/patient’s head, neck or chest might result in a serious or life-threatening situation. By prescribing stringent test parameters for these areas, the aim is to reduce entrapment risks to the minimum possible level during operation and use of the bed.

Our Minuet® 2 has been independently tested by a globally renowned organisation, to certify that it complies with the latest stability, dimensional and safety requirements of the IEC60601-2-52 standard.
