Designed for installations such as Changing Places facilities, school hygiene rooms and home adaptations, it meets the recommendations of BS8300:2009, for use in situations where a person needs to be changed or showered while lying down.

Nursing Bench 150 comprises a comfortable PVC-coated canvas stretcher which is easily height adjusted with the hand-held remote control.

Providing a weight limit of up to 150kg, the Nursing Bench 150 comes in 1.4m and 1.8m lengths and can be height adjusted from 500mm to 900mm by means of its wall-mounted lifting unit. This allows it to be lowered to a suitable height for side transfer from a wheelchair, and then raised to a comfortable and safe working height for the carer. The Nursing Bench 150 can be supplemented with a Pressalit Care safety rail and splash curtain.

The Pressalit Care range includes the Nursing Bench 200, which features an adjustable head support, and integral water collection tray, and has a maximum weight limit of 200kg. In addition, for use in kindergartens and nurseries, the Pressalit Care Nursing Table is designed for a maximum weight of 75kg and has the option of integral sink, tap, and wire storage baskets.
