Croyde Height Adjustable Cot
Reduce the risks of infant falls and improve caregiver ergonomics.
Neonatal Patient Safety
“The assessment and management of babies who are accidentally dropped in hospital” was the title of a NHS patient safety alert released in May 2019 – *NHS/PSA/RE/2019/002
The report states that it assessed the NRLS for incident dates between 01/09/2017 and 31/08/2018 and identified a total of 250 reports of babies that were accidentally dropped.
182 reports were from obstetric/midwifery units, where most incidents “were the result of mothers accidentally dropping their baby or losing hold of their babies when drowsy or asleep”.
The Croyde height-adjustable cot has been designed to improve neonatal patient safety and provide safer, closer contact between mothers and babies.
Reduce the Risk of Infant Falls
The Croyde Height Adjustable Cot glides underneath the hospital bed.
It puts the baby directly in front of the mother, giving her constant access and the opportunity for more skin-to-skin contact.
The mother can stay in bed and be close to her baby.
When she feels tired, she can safely put the baby back into the cot.
The cot can be raised and lowered in one simple, hands-free movement. It is then positioned at the ideal height for the Mother or the attending Midwife.
This eliminates unnecessary bending for the mother and reduces musculoskeletal strains for the midwife.
It is supplied with a clip-on basket or optional foldable shelf for the storage of baby-changing materials. The basket is colour-coded to match the cot and matches the same height as the cradle.
The Croyde Height Adjustable Cot can be chosen in any colour to complement the design of the maternity unit.
There is no additional cost for a colour choice and multiple colours can also be chosen if desired. For example, a lavender cot for a lavender room. Click here to view colour options:

Croyde Height Adjustable Cot Scene
The open design of the Croyde Height Adjustable Cot is clear to see and it makes cleaning a very simple task.
The clear plastic crib and storage basket are both removable and all parts of the frame are easily accessible for cleaning purposes.
The cot is also compatible with chlorine-based cleaning solutions & hospital wipes.
Transport & Brakes
The cot is lightweight and extremely easy to move around with a balanced design and easy roll castors.
The castors are also equipped with individual brakes to ensure maximum stability when blocked.
Basket or Shelf? Your Choice!
The manual tilt feature allows the baby’s head and chest to be elevated above the feet as required.
This position may also provide a more natural position for the Mother to see and touch her baby.
An optional upgrade is available to change this to be a hydraulically assisted motion if desired.
