The Trinity Electronic Braking Castor (Trinity EBC) is the newest addition to our Trinity castor range for hospital beds, renowned in the healthcare industry for its fixed brake pedal position. Trinity EBC builds on this innovation with the addition of automatic brakes, intuitive steering, and the ability to control the brakes and steering from any castor foot pedal, handset or nurse panel. So with Trinity EBC, you get a castor that knows where you want to go, and knows when you want it to stop.
In a high pressure environment like a hospital ward, it is very easy to forget to engage the castor brakes on a hospital bed. Where beds are used for moving patients frequently, forgetting to apply the brakes presents a higher risk of patient falls, especially if the patient tries to alight while the castor brakes are off.
Trinity EBC helps prevent patient falls by automatically applying the brakes when the bed has been stationary for a programmed time (normally 60 seconds). When you want to unlock the brakes again, the control is always within easy reach—just flick up any of the four castor pedals, or press the button on the handset or nurse control panel.
“It would be nice if the bed automatically knew where it was going and for the brakes to turn on and off at the flick of a switch.”
Just like your iPhone™ decides whether to flip its display from portrait to landscape based on your pattern of movement, Trinity EBC analyses how you move the bed and intelligently decides when and how to engage or disengage the castor's directional lock. This automates another task you have to remember, enabling you to focus on looking after your patient.
In the unlikely event of a power cut, the castors can still be manually steered and locked through the pedals, just like a normal Trinity castor. This allows you to still use the bed normally.
