Enhancing Bed Safety and Independence with the Halo Safety Ring

In the realm of assisted living and aging-in-place, ensuring the safety and well-being of residents during transitions between spaces is paramount. Capturing the spotlight in innovative solutions is the Halo Safety Ring – a patented bed mobility device that is reshaping the landscape of patient care. This revolutionary device, the sole approved bed assist device in assisted living settings, redefines safety and independence. Tailored to address critical zones and eliminate entrapment risks, the Halo Safety Ring stands as a beacon of progress in the pursuit of enhanced patient care.

Understanding the Halo Safety Ring

Unparalleled Safety Measures

What sets the Halo Safety Ring apart is its ability to prevent lateral mattress movement and eliminate gap spaces in the most crucial zones: 1, 2, and 3. These zones cover exit points for the neck, head, and chest, effectively eliminating the four most critical entrapment zones. This device adheres to the strict standards set by the HBSW, ensuring dimensional tolerance in all zones and compliance with safety guidelines.

Customizable and Ergonomic Design

One of the standout features of the Halo Safety Ring is its adaptability to various institutional beds, mattress sizes, and bed frames. Unlike other devices, it does not loosen over time, thanks to its form-fit adjustable base. The ergonomically designed transfer bar is easy to use for resident support and eliminates entanglement risks, regardless of the patient's size.

Mobility Promotion and Environmental Independence

The Halo Safety Ring goes beyond mere safety; it actively promotes bed mobility and increases environmental independence for patients. With an adjustable base that locks securely into place, residents can utilize the device as a quad-like cane attached to the bed, enabling them to assist themselves. This not only fosters a sense of self-reliance but also minimizes the risk of back injuries for caregivers.

A Closer Look at Design Features

Articulating with Bed Movements

The Halo Safety Ring seamlessly articulates with the rising head portion of the bed, maintaining compliance with alternative dimensional guidelines. This feature allows residents to maneuver comfortably in an inclined position without compromising safety.

Compressibility Elimination

Utilizing a 3 lateral mattress stay on the opposite end of the transfer bar, the Halo Safety Ring eliminates compressibility factors by permanently pushing the upper portion of the mattress against it. This design maintains compliance with dimensional guidelines in critical zones, ensuring maximum safety for the residents.

Compliance with Standards in Every Zone

Positioning the Halo Safety Ring at a specified distance from the head of the bed ensures compliance with HBSW guidelines while creating a viable exit point for residents. The device adheres to strict standards in zones 2, 3, 4, and 5, further solidifying its role in preventing entrapment risks.

A Smarter Approach to Bed Safety

In an industry where removing all rails is often seen as the only solution, the Halo Safety Ring offers a smarter alternative. It advocates for a simple yet effective interdisciplinary approach that supports residents' independence while minimizing risks and costs.
