A bed called Lucy

Our Occupational Therapists (OTs) have been communicating with the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) and equipment suppliers regarding DHHS specifications for beds used in Disability Houses. They now have a bed named after one of our OTs.

The bed is now designed so the client can be placed low to the floor and raised to a height to allow carers to safely care for the client. This bed comes standard with; adjustable backrest, knee bend, high and low height adjustment along with a tilt function, and can be easily folded for transport, making it easy to be installed or stored.

Our OTs, and Lucy in particular, have had a lot of interaction and consultation regarding the implementation of the new features; working in coordination with the DHHS and equipment suppliers to provide a more suitable bed.

As a result, one of the suppliers created a bed meeting the requirements and called it the LUCY!
