ScanAfia XHS Nursing Bed

New modern design

The ScanAfia XHS nursing bed is the quality choice for the healthcare professional. The patented bed has been specifically designed for nursing homes, senior homes and for in-home care, where easy to use, reliable beds are particularly appreciated. Industrial designer Mari Alahuhtala has designed the wooden façade of the bed to cater for Scandinavian tastes using light shades, geometrically uncluttered lines and natural materials.

Although able to take up to 260 kg weight (SWL), the ScanAfia XHS is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, thanks to the 125 mm wheels fitted as standard.  The ergonomics of both the carer and the patient were primary considerations when designing the table; its exceptionally low minimum height makes the carer’s work easier and gives the patient more independence. The back section sliding mechanism also makes the bed more pleasant to use for the patient. Our many years’ experience in designing and manufacturing hospital and nursing beds ensures that the ScanAfia XHS is made for long-term use with minimal maintenance.

The base of the bed is made of hygienic ABS plastic with breathing holes. This base structure allows the foam mattress to retain its characteristics better than it would with a traditional mesh base. The base boards can easily be removed for disinfecting.

The ScanAfia nursing bed can be combined with our range of tables and chairs, creating a harmonious décor without compromising functionality. The solid wood bed ends give the bed a longer life cycle than standard beds. Our high quality epoxy coating also contributes to the long lifespan of our beds – we are the only manufacturer to abrasive blast steel components before painting. Indeed, modern design, quality Finnish workmanship and details designed together with healthcare professionals are some of the factors that have made ScanAfia beds so popular.

The bed features a safe 24v low voltage electrical system, and its electrical motors and control units are splash resistant. Beds can be fitted with a separate nurse panel as an optional extra, allowing the functions of the bed to be restricted to nurse control only if necessary. The design of the bed is based on the new 60601-1-52 nursing bed standard and the range has been impartially tested in an independent laboratory.

All ScanAfia nursing beds are easy to move thanks to their safe, practical, centrally lockable wheels, which can be directionally locked.
