The Healthcare Technology Showcase will introduce the public to brand-new services and devices to be highlighted in the Braden Hospital. Hill-Rom, a major healthcare company which designs hospital beds, will be showcasing the most advanced hospital bed technology in the world featuring beds which can automatically turn patients, adjust to a patient’s weight, prevent a patient from falling out of bed, lift a patient to a standing position, effectively eliminate bed sores, and communicate with the patients care team.

Liko will have patient lifts and will demonstrate how Braden Hospital nurses will never lift or adjust a patient “by hand” which will effectively eliminate nursing injuries and patients being dropped on the floor. Witt Rock will demonstrate how headwalls integrate with technology. NurseCall for Hill-Rom will demonstrate the capabilities of a system that relays information from the patient, the hospital room, and the patient’s bed seamlessly to the charting system and to the patient’s care team predicting challenges before they happen and providing an interface for technology to communicate. Welch-Allyn will showcase the latest innovations in monitoring systems which interface with charting systems providing live vital signs throughout the Braden Hospital allowing providers to be kept in the loop of a patient’s status in real time.
