AVE 2 birthing bed
The latest delivery in birthing bed design.
The AVE 2 Birthing Bed delivers the latest technology and innovation to birthing bed design.
The AVE 2 is equipped with a unique, fully integrated foot section that lowers and stows underneath the bed, in just a few seconds. No need to lift it off, remove the mattress or disconnect any parts.
It is also supplied with integrated leg rests for easy deployment of lithotomy positioning, embedded patient controls, rotating side rails & folding grab handles. Consequently, there is no need for storage or attachment of additional accessories.
The AVE 2 has large, double castors to make patient transfers feel smooth and lightweight whilst also having onboard CPR for emergency scenarios.
Additionally, the AVE 2 is equipped with a unique pelvic tilt feature that can be independently adjusted to prevent women from sliding down the bed. This helps to prevent shear and friction on the skin whilst also reducing repositioning tasks for the Midwives.
L & D Positions
Integrated Foot Section
The AVE 2’s integrated foot section is lowered & stowed with just one hand in a matter of seconds.
This improved feature delivers improved caregiver ergonomics during tasks when perineal access is required & increases the speed of movement in emergency scenarios.
There is no need to lift-off, store or re-attach any parts of the bed-end, it simply lowers and stows underneath the bed.
Integrated Leg Rests
The integrated leg rests are available for immediate deployment and never need to be removed or re-attached to the bed. They are easily and simply positioned by folding them over and setting the leg holder.
They provide an excellent adjustment range to deliver a tailored selection of advanced positioning options during labour and delivery.
Bed Movement & Patient Transfers
Equipped with central braking, double-width 150mm castors & directional steering function, transfers feel smooth and lightweight.
Optional telescopic IV pole allows the equipment to be attached and safely transported with the bed.
CPR & Emergency
The integrated CPR feature allows the backrest to be returned to flat in seconds with a dual-sided manual release. Just squeeze one side and the backrest will quickly descend.
Electric Trendelenburg positioning is also standard and activated through the embedded, dual-sided controls.
Independent Pelvic Tilt
Excellent for women who have had an epidural.
Reduces shear and friction on the skin.
Improves comfort through lower back support.
Avoids women feeling like they are being pushed out of bed.
Enhances visual positioning during suturing & vaginal examination.
Tilting foot section & integral grab handles optimise safety & comfort.
Integrated Side Rails
The AVE 2’s integrated side rails simply rotate in and out of position when required.
They do not need any additional bed space to operate so there is no need to move chairs, monitors, or other equipment when raising or lowering.
Cleaning & Infection Control
The AVE 2 has a class-leading high height position of 1080mm and a backrest elevation of 70°.
These excellent levels of articulation permit unrestricted access for cleaning.
The removable base panels also allow access for deep cleaning purposes.
AVE 2 mattresses are lightweight and easy to handle, removable for ease of cleaning, and sealed on the underside to deliver enhanced infection prevention.
They are also uniquely seamless in the high-risk zones such as the seating area of the bed.
Upholstery can be chosen in a variety of colours.
Labour & Delivery Positioning
The AVE 2 birthing bed is highly versatile and supports both high-risk and low-risk deliveries.
It offers a wide range of positioning options & active birth positions are easily deployed.
Croyde Active Birth
Using the Croyde® Positioning Pillow or Croyde® Birthing Beanbag with the bed can further encourage the woman to find her most comfortable position.
The beanbags help women to become more comfortable during labour.
