Patients That Can Benefit

Case Study Video

“We truly believe that your bed and turner has helped in keeping Curtis here with us. No pneumonia over winter is a FIRST.”

Kyle (Arctic Bed)

“I took delivery of my Centrobed Arctic Independent bed about a year ago. It was immediately apparent to me and my carers it was going to be extremely helpful in reducing the time and effort it takes to re-position me. Especially at night. So instead of being woken constantly, I’m now able to mostly sleep through – as are my carers.

There are other benefits too, but the overnight automatic positioning is, in my house anyway, the most important.”


“Firstly the cool design and look of the bed is so pleasing. After having a plain-looking, profiling hospital bed, it is such a relief having a ‘normal’ looking bed, with a cool design.

Also, the fact we can change the design as he gets older is such a bonus.

As for the comfort and practicality, it has been a god send. Christopher is so much more comfortable now at night. He has always struggled to get himself comfortable ever since being a toddler, which since he has become diagnosed with Duchenne, has become clear why.

With so many variations of positions, he or we can adjust the bed to suit his needs, to make him as relaxed as possible. As he does suffer with a bad chest frequently, we tend to have the head end raised slightly, which helps his breathing and reduces the coughing through the night. We also keep the side guard up at an angle which gives him security, but also allows him to get on and off the bed on his own. Also, we often raise the edges of the bed which helps him keep his hips and legs in line and supports his thighs.”


Product Details

The Arctic Turning Bed is a fully profiling bed developed for clients with complex care needs and for enabling more independence.

The unique function of the Arctic is that it can turn whilst the person is sat up in bed, allowing an infinite amount of positional changes, essential for pressure relief, comfort and manual handling. The Arctic is also programmable, with the fitting of the Autobox, the bed can be pre-set to perform positional changes at a desired frequency. The Arctic is also height adjustable reducing unnecessary strain on carers and contributes to a better quality of single-handed care.

With a variety of potential functions, the Arctic has an autobox which can be programmed in numerous ways to include hands free turning day and night, making the bed suitable for people with a number of complex needs such as muscular dystrophy, multiple sclerosis, motor neurone disease, tissue viability and cerebral palsy. The Arctic is able to address an individual’s specific condition, help reduce their pain and discomfort while maintaining the person’s independence and alleviating some of the responsibility and work required by the carers. To meet the varying tissue viability needs, the Arctic is available with a choice of highly sophisticated pressure relieving mattresses. Through facilitating an increase in a person’s mobility, this turning bed can reduce and prevent pressure sores and ulcers.

As with all Centrobed products, the Arctic is compatible with most environmental control systems. Centrobed’s beds are made with ergonomics at the forefront and can be designed to fit the individual person, from paediatric to bariatric, or excessively tall, the beds can be made bespoke with a safe working load of over 50 stones (318Kg). The Arctic is suitable in several environments; this turning bed can facilitate independent care at home or be used to reduce the cost of care at a community hospital.

The turning function can be stopped at any position up to 50 degrees, where it will stop automatically. It is also possible to turn the person onto their side if they prefer to lie that way. In the current economic climate, people are regularly trying to find various methods to reduce costs and in hospitals there is a reduced or single handed care. This makes the Arctic turning bed an essential, cost-saving piece of equipment by not only reducing the amount of carers required to reposition a client but, in many cases the client is given the freedom to reposition themselves without having to rely on others.
