The Cosyfit is a robust high-sided sleep area, which can be easily dismantled and stored
Who it’s for:
The Cosyfit is designed for individuals with limited mobility and is robust enough for adults and children who may rock, thrash about, push or kick. For those with the ability to stand, walk, pull to standing or climb, we usually recommend the Safespace.
The Cosyfit also creates a safe environment for those who may otherwise be restricted to a wheelchair.
It is used mainly as a safe bed for those at risk of falling or hurting themselves on metal or wooden bed surrounds. Its soft, high sides, open top and large viewing panel create a comfortable sleep area.
The large soft window on one or both sides allows light in and creates a sense of space whilst allowing the user to watch television or enjoy sensory equipment.
This also helps with communication and reduces the feeling of isolation or containment experienced by those in beds with very high sides.
Users will often seek it out at other times too, to relax or play – a place to feel safe in.
The Cosyfit provides much needed peace of mind for carers and parents, reducing anxieties about injuries from falls, rolling and seizures. Noise levels are reduced as there are no hard surfaces to bang on.
The Cosyfit can be quickly and easily dismantled for storage, making it ideal for respite centres and care homes.
- 3 reinforced padded side panels and 1 opening side with a mattress as standard.
- Can be pushed against a wall where space is limited.
- Front panel can be fully opened and fastened to the side, providing a large open area.
- The low floor makes it easy to step into.
- Easy to dismantle and store.
- Can be used with a ceiling track hoist or adapted for use with a mobile hoist.
Safespace Siesta and Hi-Lo option
Safespace Siesta is a versatile, strong and comfortable high-sided sleep area, suitable for those with limited mobility
Who it’s for?
The Siesta is designed for those who may have a lot of movement and strength, but are unable or disinclined to pull up or climb over the high sides.
The customization design makes it suitable for those with complex or varying nursing needs and those requiring a hoist.
It’s robust ‘flex-out’ sides can be kicked, punched, head-butted or rocked against, and help keep a person safe from injuries and from falling against hard surfaces for example during seizures
The Siesta creates a safe, low stimulation environment that promotes easier settling at bedtime and improves sleep patterns, providing a safer environment for those who continue to wake at night.
The Siesta’s versatility and easy clean design make it particularly suitable for hospital settings or other situations where a wide range of clients’ needs can be accommodated by one extremely tough and versatile piece of equipment.
Opening panels on up to all four sides, allow access for nursing and care, including head end for emergency resuscitation.
The Siesta is made with the same heavy duty PVC fabric as all our products, supported on a strong frame and base. The walls flex out to absorb impact and so require a clearance of 25cm (10”) from any hard surface.
The Siesta can be jet washed, or the fabric can be easily removed for steam-cleaning, to support infection control.
Opening panels can be zipped open and clipped back, or rolled up for ease of access.
Viewing panels allow in light, create a sense of space, and facilitate observation and communication between client and carer, which can be restricted by other designs of high sided beds. A viewing panel at the foot end can allow the client to watch television or enjoy sensory products.
The Siesta has a raised platform to accommodate mobile hoisting and an open top to accommodate ceiling track hoisting. The Siesta comes with a 15cm (6”) mattress as standard.
The Safespace Hi-Lo is a Safespace with a robust, height adjustable base.
A safe bedroom, playroom or chill-out space
A Safespace can make a huge difference when a person has safety issues, poor sleep patterns or behavioural difficulties. It can provide a safe play space, sleeping space or a calm area. Families often report a big improvement in the life and well-being of the person using it and a positive impact on the whole family.
A Safespace creates a low stimulation environment which can help with settling at bedtime and improve sleep patterns. It can also provide a safer environment for those who continue to wake at night.
With the option of a white wall and lighting effects, such as our fibre optics kit or special effects projector (see Accessories) the Safespace makes an ideal sensory room.
Each Safespace is custom-made, with a door and window, aligned with the door and window of your own room. This allows for the use of curtains, light fittings, radiators and electric sockets, television, music and sensory equipment.
This helps to create a light airy, comfortable space, much more attractive and versatile than conventional room padding.
The walls of the Safespace are positioned 25cm away from any hard surfaces and flex out on impact, removing the risk of injury from hard surfaces, such as walls, radiator, in the room.
The floor has 75mm of foam under it, which absorbs much of the impact from anyone falling or landing heavily on it. This is adequate for most Safepace users and provides a surface which is stable enough to walk on.
If the Safespace could be used by someone who is likely to intentionally bang their head on the floor with a lot of force without wearing protective headgear, we would recommend the provision of a 75mm floor mat inside the Safepace.
Room sizes need to be at least 50cms (20″) wider than the Safespace to allow the walls to flex out safely.
Roll up wall – this can be added if access is required through the Safespace to reach fitted wardrobes.
Viewing panels – these can be added to enable the person using the Safespace to watch television or enjoy sensory equipment situated outside the Safespace.
These can vary in size as appropriate. If a very low stimulation environment is required, we would not recommend the addition of viewing panels.
Projection screen – an internal white wall can be included in the design of the Safespace. This can be used as a projection screen.
